Putty overview

Putty is one of the best terminal emulators available today. It supports different types of network protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet, etc. In Windows, it is used as SSH client to connect to your Linux server, or for some other purpose. But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be wondering if there is any software like Putty available for Mac? The answer is yes!

With the help of some other applications, we can use putty on Mac, although Putty is used widely on Windows platform. Official versions of Putty are available on Unix-like platforms, and now it's widely available for Mac systems running OS X 10.11 or later. SSH is available by default on Mac, Linux, or Unix. Although you can use Terminal.app for SSH connections, there are still some benefits to using Putty such as other clients' failure to keep connections live, whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some Amazon AWS, VMware ESXi or CISCO stuff, transferring files, managing files on a server, or whatever.

Works as expected, the lower reviews are from scumbags who want something for free. This program deserves a 4-5 rating on the apps merits alone.

I'm writing here with the hope of getting the attention of the developer. I could not find a way to contact the developer otherwise. The big problem I'm having with this app is the the fonts are pixelated. Even the fonts within the app itself are pixelated--such as the screen for changing the app's settings. But the terminal window's font is pixelated as well. I've tried changing it with no luck. The font is almost unreadable in my opinion. So I'm wondering if there's a way to fix it.
