How to make pageant load your ssh keys and start putty afterwards
For me it used to be very annoying to always manually start pageant, load my key(s) one by one, enter their passwords and then manually start putty. So I thought of an easy way to automate that process. And luckily we don't even need any kind of script for that. Just a single link, that will open pageant with our specified key(s) and afterwards will run putty. Here you can see how that works!
- Create a new link to your pageant.exe
- Open the link's properties
- Go to the tab "Link properties" and enter
"C:\path\to\pageant.exe" "C:\path\to\key.ppk" -c "C:\path\to\putty.exe"
- Take the path of the pageant's directory and enter it in "Start in" field.
