I'm trying to get my settings from Putty loaded into mRemoteNG. According to the thread below, once I select SSH version 2 as my protocol, I should have a list of settings to choose from in the Putty Session menu. I definitely don't. I have Default Settings only in mRemoteNG. In Putty, I have a few that connect to machines, and most importantly, allow for middle-click paste.



  • I have some good experience with the mremoteng forums. Have you tried posting your question there?

  • Indeed I have not. Usually have good luck here, but will try there. For what it's worth, I think it's a Putty issue -- I tried SuperPutty and had the same issue. :-/ I also already have an account here. Jan 13 '15 at 13:27

    The session selection shows up for me, maybe it's the version of putty you use. In the Tools -> Options -> Advanced menu of mRemoteNG, there is a button to launch putty to configure the sessions. Does that work?

  • That got the settings to load, but in turn has broken all connections (even w/ default settings). Error is "connection failed cannot start process because a file name has not been provided". Jan 14 '15 at 13:11

You need to have putty installed on your machine. in mRemoteNG > Tools > Options > Advanced > Use custom putty path (Browse for putty.exe).

It worked for me !
