Yeah we have a unix server that I have to connect to to program on. I always just thought that putty was a ssh client that only my school used, never realized it was widely used. learn something new every day.

Putty isn't illegal in the United States. I use it all the time at my work to shell into our Linux boxes on a daily basis.
