Move Putty sessions to another computer

GeekStuff. PuTTY stores all the session information in Windows registry. On the source machine, export the PuTTY session registry information as shown below.

regedit /e "%userprofile%\desktop\putty-registry.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Simontatham
Transfer this putty-registry.reg file from source machine to destination machine. On the destination machine, import the PuTTY SSH session registry, by right mouse-click on the putty-registry.reg and click on ‘Merge’. This will transfer all the PuTTY session information from one windows system to another.
