You can access Linux server from Windows through Putty

I get slightly excited when can introduce you my favorite software, which consists of Putty (command line) and WinSCP (SFTP file manager). Both of the programs provide encrypted SSH connection to your Linux server, lightweight and smoothly working computer (without any freezing), clearly intuitive design, simple manipulation and many more... If you don't wanna exchange Windows with Linux, so you have to go for Putty. This is a "must-have", while you're working on a Windows platform. Of course, if you wanna access Linux server from some else Linux computer thus there's a native command line.
