As sysadmin working in IT consulting, I have a lot of SSH PuTTY (managed by SuperPutty) sessions, and also, I have 2 computers, and a few virtual machines and a Terminal Server with Putty in which I have all these sessions.

Is there a way to synchronize all those putty sessions,or any SSH client that has this functionality?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: I wanted to say, automatically

I've seen this done in the past with a login script that added the entries for various putty hosts to the user's registry when they login. – davey Jan 16 '14 at 19:34

I am not a windows guy. But i know our windows people export the session list and keep it in git and then pull it from git onto another machine and merge that "putty-registry.reg" file by right clicking it onto the new machine. This is the link how to export/import it


But i do not think putty has anything built-in for this particular purpose.

Hope this helps

The excellent putty faq contains a python script that generates a windows .reg file. You'll probably be able to customise it to what you want to do (be careful with your registry though)

Putty Faq:

A.2.9 Is there an option to turn off the annoying host key prompts?

If you have host keys available in the common known_hosts format, we have a script called to convert them to a Windows .REG file, which can be installed ahead of time by double-clicking or using REGEDIT.
