How do I use PuTTY with my Eclipse server?

  • Download and runĀ putty.exe
  • Enter your server’s Host Name (or IP address)
  • Select either SSH (preferred, secure, works some AIX servers and all RHEL servers) or Telnet (insecure, works with all Eclipse servers)
  • Optionally, you may give the session a name and Save for future connections
  • Select Open to launch the telnet/ssh session
  • Enter your root login credentials
  • (AIX only) Set the terminal type:
export TERM=xterm
