Putty (at least up to V5.8x) is a self contained exe file (in the case of Windows) that does not need any installation. Just download the Linux version and run it.

Putty is at version 6.3 now.

You can download putty from:

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Here's the source file
http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/putty-0.63.tar.gz

You will need to compile it to run it.  It's a small package, so it will compile quickly.

Here is another link with various distributions. It appears to be a bit more work than Windows.

With Fedora it is included in the repo's, but I don't know about RedHat. Why do you need putty specifically? Isn't SSH enough, which is probably already installed? Putty in my point of view only makes much sense when installed on a windoze box.

But you can always try installing it with "yum install putty". If it is included in the RH repo's it'll install, if it isn't you'll get a message telling you it isn't available.

Why in the world would you want to install PuTTY on Linux?

Just use the Linux ssh commandlne client and you'll be fine.

To start an interactive shell from a Linux host on a remote host:

ssh user@remotehost

To run a command/script there:

ssh user@remotehost '/path/to/command'

You can run a series of commands, like

ssh user@remotehost '
 /path/to/command1
 /path/to/command2
 /path/to/command3
'

If required use interactive PuTTY from Windows to start a commandline window on the first Linux host and run the above commands to the second Linux host from there.

Run
$ sudo yum whatprovides putty
to see what package you need to install.
i.e. if it's contained in any packages available from the enabled repositories.
