Re: [ProgSoc] PuTTY on Win2K (longer)
Damn .. I really do have to work out how to unstick the ctrl-key
when swapping in and out of VNCViewer (win version). It likes
to think the ctrl key's permanently pressed whenever I alt-tab
back into it, which is extra-annoying because ctrl-return in kmail
is a shortcut to the Send-Now-Even-Though-You-Haven't-Finished
button. Sorry about that Chiefs.

My DNS issues cause me problems in the other direction .. if the host
I'm attaching to doesn't know my IP address (and most of my hosts
don't know my personally) then I get a delay during connection -- prior
to the password prompt. Once authenticated it's tickety-boo.
An entry in the local hosts file resolves this. We don't have dyndns, and
I don't own the DNS anyway (it's on Netware, blech), so that's a hosts
file entry on every box for every person that might connect (and more
importantly might complain).

The @nospam. feature of putty is great -- and few people find it because it's in the
second paragraph of the README (right after the 'All you need to do is put
putty.exe in your path and run it' comment). Under MS-Windows it's
comfortable to have a Start | Hosts | menu with lots of shortcuts of the
style 'ftoomsh' with properties 'Run : putty @nospam.ftoomsh'
