Save putty sessions
At work, I am required to have a windows desktop. I user putty to login to the linux servers or VMware servers. Here is a quick way to backup and restore those settings in case of moving:
Export the PuTTY registry key on source windows machine
Click on Start -> Run -> and enter the following regedit command in the run dialog box, which will place the PuTTY registry key and value on your desktop in the putty-registry.reg file. Please note that the name of the registry key (Simon Thatham) is the author of PuTTY.
regedit /e "%userprofile%\desktop\putty-registry.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Simontatham
You can also launch the registry and interactively export the registry key value as shown below. Click on Start -> Run -> regedit -> Click File menu -> Click Export menu-item -> Enter HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Simontatham in the “Selected branch” -> Save the putty-registry.reg to your desktop.
