PuTTY Configuration Tips
Set Scrollback Lines
- Usually when we use PuTTY there are a lot of lines displayed with every command so we easily reach the number 200 and we can’t scroll back to our previous commands and outputs.
We can increase the number of lines to scroll back so we can see previous outputs (only of the current session):
Set “Lines of scrollback” to whatever you need
Change Character Set
- PuTTY default charset causes programs with Command Line Interface (CLI) to change their appearance.
The closest charset to the “real” CLI interface is UTF-8:
Set translation to UTF-8
Change Terminal Colors
- PuTTY default colors are a black background with white text.
We can choose to use “system colors” and get a white background with black text:
Mark “Use system colours”
Set Auto-login username
- If you always use the same Username while to log-in to your servers you can set it to be used without typing it every time you reconnect:
Fill Auto-login username
Save to Default Settings
- Now we can save all these setting to our Default Settings profile:
Select Default Settings And Click Save
