    I'll be reloading my system soon, however Ive got over a 100 servers in putty and they all use keys. I have all the keys on my drive saved, etc etc, but putty is setup to auto login for all these servers. Where does putty save its settings at so when I get done reloading I dont have to go back through everyone of them servers and re-setup the auto login process :x:

    I don't know about windows, but on most other ssh distributions it is $HOME/.ssh/known_hosts

    Also, unless PuTTY does things differently, you shouldn't have to do any auto-login stuff aside from copying your public keys to the remote server.

    Linux keys I got saved their easy :) Windows on the other hand, if you setup keys, itll ask who you want to log in as, but ask for no password, you can configure putty to auto login without asking for anything, username or pass :bigthumb: comes in handy when all you do is log in and out of systems all day long
