Logging In to a Server over a Network Port Using PuTTY

Use PuTTY to remotely log in to a server over a local area network (LAN) and configure and maintain the server.

Ensure that the following requirements are met:

  • The local PC is connected to the management network port of the server through a network cable.
  • PuTTY is installed.

    You can download PuTTY from chiark website. You are advised to use the latest version of PuTTY, otherwise you may fail to log in to the server.

  • IP address of the server.
  • User name and password for logging in to the server.


  1. Set an IP address and a subnet mask or add route information for the PC to communicate with the server.
  2. On the PC command-line interface (CLI), run the following command to check whether the server is reachable:

    Ping Server IP address

  3. Double-click PuTTY.exe.

    The PuTTY Configuration window is displayed, as shown in Figure 9-16.
