SSH with Windows and Putty

Now that we can connect to the BeagleBone, let’s get a SSH session running. To do this, you will need to use a SSH client, which is no problem if you are a Linux or Max user as these are available from a Terminal window.

If you are a Windows user, then you will need to download Putty from here: http://www.putty.org/.
Having downloaded and installed Putty (its a single file called putty.exe), run the program.
