I'm using putty and I'm a little bit of a's been a while since my cisco courses and college.

We have SSH set up to connect to our Cisco ASA 5510. Connecting to that via putty is not problem. Is there away to connect to it via command prompt without using a console line?

Another questions is.. so if I use putty to connect to the 5510, is there a way I can hop from the 5510 to one of our Cisco 2960 switches that also has SSH set up for it too? I know the IP address etc.

I just find it annoying to have to exit out of putty each time to get into another device.

I tried just using command prompt and typing in "telnet (x.x.x.x) and it didn't work because it needs SSH. So In putty it seems to only want to connect with only one session, when I'm in putty on the ASA 5510 and logged in, I type in the IP address of a switch (telnet x.x.x.x) and it doesn't connect. So again is there any way to hope from one SSH connection to another within the same session in putty?
