QUESTION:

When I click my desktop short cut to run PuTTy and login to Prostix i get a configuration screen as per the screen print below. Is there a way I can configure PuTTy so that it skips this configuration screen and take me straight to the login prompt ?

ANSWER:

Yes. You can configure PuTTy to bypass the initial "configuration" screen

To bypass the PuTTy configuration screen , perform the following:

1. Go to the Windows Desktop, locate the PuTTy shortcut icon then right click to display menu and select Properties

Note: the PuTTy shortcut icon is normally renamed as Prostix - as per screen print below.
 

2. The Properties box will be displayed. Look at the target setting - in example below it is set to C:\putty\putty.exe

3. Add the following text immediately after the current Target setting

-load "prostix"

Then click 'Apply'

4. Test by double left clicking the updated shortcut icon. you will now bypass the PuTTy configuration screen and instead see the intial login screen
