Connect Laptop to multiple sources via PuTTY and Switches

I need to use PuTTY to TelNet to multiple timing systems, each with their own ip address, but daisy chained to one another as well.  How can I do that?  I need live streaming to happen from each timing box to a local file (different file for each timing system).  I have hardly used PuTTY but it looks like I can only connect to one ip address with PuTTY.  Can I run multiple instances of PuTTY simultaneously?

Thanks in advance!

I think it only has one IP.  

Try NetTem (Intersoft) .  It allows multiple instances.  I have and use NetTerm occasionally.  You can get a trial to see if it meets your needs
,.. but daisy chained to one another as well
Not sure what you mean by that.  Tabs?

You can run multiple PuTTY instances.  I've run as many as 50 at the same time.  They will each open their own window, not in tabs.  You can save each of the settings so that you'll be ready to connect without having to retype the connection name.

Try out putty connection manager or super putty. It's a tabbed interface for putty.
