Running PuTTY from the Windows Command Line

You want to load a particular putty session on the command line (and "hide" this in a putty shortcut)? Find the description above!

Short version:
PuTTY allows you to connect to a remote host in 2 different ways :

  • ...\putty.exe [USER@]HOST // naming the remote HOST directly
  • ...\putty.exe -load SESSION_NAME // naming the remote HOST within a named "saved session"
I prefer the latter, as you also enjoy all the other settings being part of the "named saved session".
