 [PuTTY |] (a pun on the [TTY] acronym) is a combined [Telnet]/[SSH] client and [VT100] TerminalEmulator for [Windows]. It was created 1998 and made its first [SSH] connection on May 29th. It is only about 350[KB] in size and requires no installation, just [download PuTTY |] and run it. 
 If you don't want to memorize the [URL], just remember to [Google] for <tt>putty download</tt>.

-!! Line drawing characters  
-[PuTTY] identifies as <tt>xterm</tt> by default. If you use a [UTF-8] locale on your [Linux]/[UNIX] machines, many applications will react to <tt>TERM=xterm</tt> by sending line drawing characters as a pair of characters consisting of a mode-switching character followed by some normal character such as x, q, and the like. [PuTTY] ignores the mode-switching character. As a result, trees, lines, boxes and the like don’t look anything like trees, lines or boxes.  
-The solution is to have [PuTTY] identify as <tt>linux</tt> (ie. the [Linux] console TerminalEmulator) instead. To make it all work right, you need to twiddle the following configuration settings:  
-Terminal → Keyboard::  
- Change the sequences sent by: The Functions keys and Keypad::  
- Select <i>Linux</i>.  
-Window → Appearance::  
- Font settings::  
- Pick a font that contains the Unicode line drawing characters, such as <i>Andale Mono</i> or <i>Lucida Console</i>. (Unfortunately Vista’s gorgeous new <i>Consolas</i> font does not have those.)  
-Window → Translation::  
- Character set translation on received data::  
- Select <i>[UTF-8]</i>.  
- Adjust how PuTTY handles line drawing characters::  
- Select <i>Use Unicode line drawing code points</i>.  
-Connection → Data::  
- Terminal details: Terminal-type string::  
- Enter “<tt>linux</tt>”.  
-Now line drawing characters should show up as they are supposed to.
