Putty Commands
I am trying to search the internet for the commands I can execute on Putty Terminals and can anyone let me know what commands I can execute on the terminal of Putty.

Re: Putty Commands
The commands executed by Putty are same as that of the destination OS and so if you are trying to connect to Windows OS it would execute all the commands on the Windows Command prompt and same for Linux.

Re: Putty Commands
Just to help you out I would add some commonly used commands as well

ls - to list files in a directory:
cd - change directory (navigate to some directory):
cp - copy a file:
mv - move a file (also used to rename files):
rm - remove a file:
mkdir - make directory:
pwd - show your current location:
whoami - find out which user you are:
wget - to download some url content to the current directory
yum - To install any packages from the urls

You can refer to the --help or man for details

Re: Putty Commands
The shortcuts to edit or move across the PUTTY terminal is the same as the Emacs editor.

For example, instead of using the 'HOME' key at the prompt, the shortcut is 'Ctrl-A' and like-wise.

Re: Putty Commands
For most purposes, PuTTY can be considered to be an xterm terminal. PuTTY also supports some terminal control sequences not supported by the real xterm: notably the Linux console sequences that reconfigure the colour palette, and the title bar control sequences used by DECterm (which are different from the xterm ones; PuTTY supports both).

By default, PuTTY announces its terminal type to the server as xterm. If you have a problem with this, you can reconfigure it to say something else; vt220 might help if you have trouble.

Re: Putty Commands
Depending on the protocol used for the current session, there may be a submenu of ‘special commands’. These are protocol-specific tokens, such as a ‘break’ signal, that can be sent down a connection in addition to normal data. Their precise effect is usually up to the server. Currently only Telnet and SSH have special commands.

The following special commands are available in Telnet:

* Are You There
* Break
* Synch
* Erase Character

PuTTY can also be configured to send this when the Backspace key is pressed; see section 4.16.3.
* Erase Line
* Go Ahead
* No Operation

Should have no effect.
* Abort Process
* Abort Output
* Interrupt Process

PuTTY can also be configured to send this when Ctrl-C is typed; see section 4.16.3.
* Suspend Process

PuTTY can also be configured to send this when Ctrl-Z is typed; see section 4.16.3.
* End Of Record
* End Of File

In an SSH connection, the following special commands are available:

* IGNORE message

Should have no effect.
* Repeat key exchange

Only available in SSH-2. Forces a repeat key exchange immediately (and resets associated timers and counters). For more information about repeat key exchanges, see section 4.19.2.
* Break

Only available in SSH-2, and only during a session. Optional extension; may not be supported by server. PuTTY requests the server's default break length.
* Signals (SIGINT, SIGTERM etc)
