Copy PuTTY sessions to another computer

Copy PuTTY sessions (conn. profiles) to another computer

1. From Run or a command prompt, paste and execute the following:

regedit /e "%userprofile%\desktop\putty-registry.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Simontatham

Simon Tatham is the author of PuTTY and thus the registry entry above! Bet you were worried that the above script ran something to mess with your Registry!?

2. This produces a file, putty-registry.reg on your desktop. Copy on to the computer you want the saved sessions added to and double click on it to execute. This adds the PuTTY registry to the computer's registry.


Thanks to Anton Perez for this. I copied here in case his page ever disappears and it helps my ageing grey-cells!
