Telnet

The popular telnet/SSH client for Windows, PuTTY has finally gone into closed beta for Windows Phone. Should you be on the beta list from when we last covered the app being in development, you'll be able to get a first look at what's coming to the mobile platform. For those who aren't sure what PuTTY does, the app essentially enables you to connect to remote machines through a terminal.

With PuTTY being in beta as we speak, we can't see it being long for the testing phase to complete and the app be published for everyone to download. Pass the break for some details and screenshots.

PuTTY (www.greenend.org.uk) is a popular telnet/SSH client for Windows, enabling those with remote access to servers and devices to connect and perform an array of tasks through the terminal or command line interface. A developer has taken to Reddit to announce that he's currently at work on porting the PuTTY Windows client to Windows Phone.

While numerous apps are already available for Windows Phone that support SSH, it'll be good to see such a popular Windows client be brought across to the mobile world. No ETA has been provided, but a screenshot has been teased and we're stoked to finally be able to use PuTTY while on the move.

Review: Token2Shell Mobile

When it comes to software for Windows Mobile, we have a little bit of everything. Twitter clients (PockeTwit, Twikini, moTweets), Music/Video Players (Kinoma Play, Core Player, Pocket Tunes), Games (Rabbit Wars, My Little Tank); these are just the tip of the iceberg. One class of applications that seem to be significantly under served are programs that are designed for IT professionals.

It seems like Information Technology would be an area that had more applications than it knew what to do with. Tools that allow remote monitoring or remote control of servers and network hardware are available, but aren’t nearly as pervasive as one would expect them to be.

Token2Shell Mobile is a SSH (Secure Shell) client for Windows Mobile. For the uninitiated, SSH is one of the standard tools for remotely managing and maintaining IT equipment. For the full review, hit the jump.
