Putty is a very useful application that can be used to connect to serial ports and Secure Shell(SSH) to Raspberry Pi’s.

Putty is mostly used on Windows to connect to remote devices but it can also run on a Raspberry Pi.

Now that Putty has been installed you can use it to connect to all kinds of devices. I use it to connect to GRBL from my Raspberry Pi.
