Putty for Mac version 8.5.x FAQ

Here is our current FAQ for "Putty for Mac" it should help answer the most common questions and support request.

(Q) What is Putty for Mac?
(A) 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 thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software's 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 OSX 10.11 or higher. Please see the FAQ entry about running Putty on OSX 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10 below.

(Q) I get this error when installing ( Error : LaunchServices: Could not store lsd-identifiers file at /private/var/db/lsd/com.apple.lsdschemes.plist ) is this a Putty error / bug?
(A) No, it's a Mac OS X bug :) See : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7270354?tstart=0

(Q) Can I install Putty on OSX 10.12 Sierra?
(A) YES! See :  http://osxdaily.com/2016/09/27/allow-apps-from-anywhere-macos-gatekeeper/

(Q) How do I expand the Putty window it is very small by default?



(A)  Unfortunately at this time, Putty for Mac does not support resizing an established connection.

What you can do is create another session for your application and set a custom Window size for it by changing the Columns and Rows and then save that for future usage of that application.

I know it is not optimal and hopefully we will be able to support resizing sometime in the future.


(Q) Can I install and run Putty on OSX 10.8.x 10.9.x and 10.10.x ?
(A) Possibly, it's known to work and has been tested on 10.9.5 for example, the problem is if Putty runs into a version of Xcode that it's not compatible with. And we don't feel comfortable suggesting people to upgrade or downgrade Xcode. You are more then welcome to purchase "Putty for Mac" and give it a try.
Putty for Mac running on OSX 10.9.5

(Q) I cannot enter the "#" character, the key combination is Alt-3 on macOS Sierra.
(A)  In Mac, Putty has additional options in Terminal Keyboard. Uncheck Option Key Acts as Meta.  Then Alt-3 should work. See the below screen-shot...

(Q) It is not possible to paste a target host address into a new connection.
(A) Use Command+V keyboard combination (the equivalent to CTRL+V) on macOS.

(Q) It's not obvious how to launch puttygen, pageant, plink etc.
(A) puttygen, pageant, plink etc are command line programs (this is the current putty limitation of mac).  So to access these programs you have to call for example:

/Applications/Putty4Mac/PuTTY.app/Contents/MacOS/puttygen

You can also place the programs in your PATH variable so that you can just call them from the command line. 

(Q)  Where are the support forums?
(A) Coming Soon!

(Q) Can I get a free trail version?
(A) Sorry but we don't have a trial version at this time, by our 10.0 release we plan to have a fully functional demo / trial version available.

(Q) Do you have any videos of Putty running on MacOS
(A) Yes, we posted two short videos of the Putty install and Putty running here.

(Q) What License is Putty released under?
(A) The Putty executable and source code are distributed under the MIT license, which is similar in effect to the BSD license. The OS X kernel (darwin) is also released under the BSD license.

(Q) Do you have volume or educational discounts?
(A) Yes, we currently have volume discounts available that max out at 50% off the normal retail price, see this post for more details.

(Q) Do you have a standalone pTerm release?
(A) Yes, after a few request we did a standalone pTerm release it can be found here.

(Q) Where can I purchase Putty for Mac and how much does it cost?
(A) Putty for Mac cost only $15.00 and can be purchased here.

Putty for Mac 8.5.0 has been released

Wine Reviews released Putty for Mac 8.5.0 for MacOS today. Putty 8.5.0 is another major release,  we have added copy and paste support as well as made a large number of changes to the context menu. Please see the full change-log below for all the exciting changes in this release.

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 thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software’s we can Use putty on MacOS 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 OSX 10.9.5 or higher.

SSH is available by default in Mac and Linux or Unix. Although you can use terminal for SSH connections still there are some benefits in using Putty such as Other clients don’t keep connections alive whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some VMware ESXi or CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

The cost of Putty 8.5.0 is only $15.00. Anyone who has purchased Putty in the past three months is entitled to a free upgrade. Putty comes with three months of upgrades and of course a 14-day money back guarantee.

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP
  • SSH
  • SCP
About Wine Reviews:

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. Our goal is to have native ports of essential Windows tools and applications made available for MacOS users.

Version 8.5.0 New Features:
  • Synced to latest Putty .70 Git Code
  • CTRL+Righ Mouse click context menu fixes
  • Added Copy and Paste to context menu Workaround for context menu not selecting on first load. Little oddity is that you have to move the mouse pointer outside the context area then back to be able to select.
  • Added End Session to Context Menu
  • Right click on mouse now pastes whatever is on the clipboard, like putty on windows.
  • Fixes on end session code crashing from context menu
  • Various other back-end fixes.
We now use FastSpring as our preferred storefront, you can pay with Credit / Debit Cards, PayPal, Amazon payments, Wire Transfer etc. etc. This store is very secure, simple and fast.
