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!
