How to migrate PUTTY settings from one windows desktop/laptop to the other?

Posted on December 18, 2008. Filed under: DBA/Admin Tips | Tags: |

Migrating putty settings from one desktop/laptop to the other box comes in handy when you had already customized your putty with saved sessions. The migration will also help a new member of an exisitng DBA support team.

Here are the steps

Start -> Run (or Windows Button + R)
Type in ‘regedit’ and press enter – this command will open the registry editor window
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> SimonTatham
Right Click on SimonTatham and select Export
Provide a file name and save the file.

Copy and execute the exported file on the new box – voila .. you are all set with the putty on the new box.

Note: this will only bring the putty configurations and NOT the putty executable itself.
