Yes - but you can't cut from the Putty output and past it into Windows. It would be handy to be able to copy output to past in into forums, email lists, etc.
I must be confused; when you highlight text in the PuTTY terminal window - it automatically copies the selected text. You can then turn around and paste (right click>paste, cntrl+v, etc.) into any Windows program.
Am I missing something here?
I mean, don't get me wrong, there are some more robust SSH clients out there - no doubt. I just think most of the "extra" features are bloat. I mean, SSH is SSH - it's inherently limited in client side bells and whistles. You connect to an SSH/Terminal server expecting to see - well - a shell.
Also, PuTTY can be setup to output everything to a log.
