WinOnMacs released Putty for Mac 9.1.0 for MacOS today. Putty 9.1.0 is a major release,  we now have better font rendering and full support for macOS Mojave. Please see the full change-log below for all the 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 10.12.6 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 Amazon AWS, VMware ESXi or CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

The cost of Putty 9.1.0 is only $19.95. A Subscription plan is also available that comes with one year of free upgrades . Putty also comes with a standard 14-day money back guarantee.

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP
  • SFTP
  • SSH
  • SCP
About WinOnMacs:

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 9.1.0 New Features:
  • macOS 10.14 Mojave support
  • Improved font rendering
  • Minor bug 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.

Purchase Putty 9.1.0 now and have Telnet SSH FTP SCP on your Mac made easy!

Pterm for Mac 9.1.0 has been released with macOS Mojave support

WinOnMacs released Pterm for Mac 9.1.0 for MacOS today. Pterm 9.1.0 is a major release,  we now have full 64bit support for macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave. Please see the full change-log below for all the changes in this release.

Pterm provides an SSH, Telnet, and raw TCP client for your Mac computer! It is based on the popular desktop client 'PuTTY'.





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 9.1.0 New Features:
  • Fully 64bit compliant
  • Minor bug 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.

Purchase Putty 9.0.1 now and have Telnet SSH FTP SCP on your Mac made easy!

Tel-FTP 2.1 for macOS High Sierra and Mojave has been released

WinOnMacs released Telnet FTP 2.1.0 for MacOS High Sierra and Mojave today.

About FTP

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network.

FTP is built on a client-server model architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and the server.[1] FTP users may authenticate themselves with a clear-text sign-in protocol, normally in the form of a username and password, but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it.

About Telnet

Telnet is a protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a bidirectional interactive text-oriented communication facility using a virtual terminal connection. User data is interspersed in-band with Telnet control information in an 8-bit byte oriented data connection over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP

Valve Changes Everything: Windows Exclusive Games Now Run On Steam For Linux

I had to blink a few times at today's news from Valve HQ. While we knew it was working on something special to run Windows games on the Steam for Linux client, I didn't expect an announcement this huge, and I didn't expect it so soon. Let's not draw out the suspense. Here's a quote directly from Valve: "Windows games with no Linux version currently available can now be installed and run directly from the Linux Steam client, complete with native Steamworks and OpenVR support."

https://www.codeweavers.com/store/?dealcode=unity


Valve just dropped what's arguably the biggest and most exciting news to hit Linux in years, and that includes SteamOS and the (admittedly failed) Steam Machines movement. This is a different animal. For folks who've wanted to ditch Windows and cite gaming as their biggest reason not to, this could change a lot of minds. Let's get into the details.

For the past two years, Valve has been funding and working on improving existing solutions for Linux that offer compatibility layers for Windows games, such as WINE. WINE, maintained by CodeWeavers, is by far the most widely used tool that allows most -- but not all -- Windows games and software to run on Linux with varying degrees of success. But it's often tricky to get them running smoothly, if at all, even with more elegant software front-ends like Lutris.


Valve is seemingly taking the headaches out of the equation. No more tinkering, no more dependency nightmares, no more guesswork. They've developed their own libraries and a custom version of WINE called Proton. It's open source, meaning anyone can contribute to it and use their own versions within Steam. All of this is being released inside a new Beta version of Steam Play.

Fans of Vulkan, the "close to the metal" graphics API used in games like DOOM, will certainly love the next bit of news: Valve has also made significant contributions to DXVK, and VKD3D, projects that essentially convert DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 (respectively) API calls to Vulkan on the fly. With the Steam Play update on Linux, all DX11 and DX12 implementations are now based on Vulkan. This means a dramatic performance boost compared to OpenGL.

CodeWeavers has Released CrossOver 17.5.1 for Linux and MacOS

I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 17.5.1 for both macOS and Linux. CrossOver 17.5.1 has many improvements to the core Windows compatibility layer and also specific enhancements for several popular applications.


CrossOver 17.5.1 supports the latest version of Microsoft Office 365 and includes a number of bug fixes to improve Office 2016. Users should see increased stability and encounter fewer crashes.

CrossOver 17.5.1 is the first step towards making CrossOver for macOS fully 64-bit compatible, in anticipation of Apple’s plan to end support for 32-bit applications. As part of our transition to 64-bit, we have removed the Legacy X Window System from CrossOver 17.5.1 The Legacy X Window System had been a fallback display technology since CrossOver 13, used in a limited set of circumstances. Users who require Legacy X Window System support should continue using an earlier version of CrossOver and contact our support team at info@codeweavers.com.

macOS customers with active support entitlements will be upgraded to CrossOver 17.5.1 the next time they launch CrossOver. Linux users can download the latest version from  CodeWeavers.

Change Log For CrossOver Mac and Linux :

17.5.1 CrossOver - July 25, 2018
  • Application Support:
    • Fixed a bug that prevented installing and launching games in newly downloaded Steam bottles. Users can now install the latest Steam app and use without modification.
  • macOS:
    • CrossOver 17.5.1 includes preliminary support for the beta version of macOS Mojave 10.14.
