Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install putty
to be honest, I have no idea if it is available in ubuntu 16.10

16.10 is old, out of date. you should upgrade


and anything wrong with ssh ?

I have endured putty on windows in the past, I didn't like it.

PuTTy does have navtive version which I believe is available through the regular software repository.

Teraterm is a only a windows program as far as I can remember. You can probably run it via wine but depending on how you use the program we can suggest a native linux application.

As Firerat said, 16.10 is VERY old....and I'd put this into the "why bother?" category. Just typing "ssh user@host" from the command-line gives you a terminal, without installing ANYTHING.

Also, read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. We are happy to help with specific questions, but you need to do basic research on your own. Going to The Putty website has not only the software, but an install guide. Putting "how to install putty on ubuntu 16.10" into Google pulls up step-by-step directions as the *VERY FIRST HIT*. Don't ask people to look things up for you.

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Generally two ways to install a program.

One is by using the built in software management system. Apt, apt-get and dpkg in this case I'd think.

Two is to get a package outside of Ubuntu's system.

Almost always better to use the distro system.


As mentioned above it may not be found unless you expand how the distro looks for a program.

https://itsfoss.com/putty-linux/ Should work.

I did "apt show putty" on my Debian, it is in the "main" repo
My assumption if it is available in Debian is is *probably* in Ubuntu as well

my concern was 16.10
I never really know the support lengths of Ubuntu
but I do know 16 is the year, 10 is the month

.04 are the long term support versions, ( 3 or 5 years ?? )
.10 are short term, I think last less than a year.

looks like I wasn't far off

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

16.10 had July 20, 2017 end of life.

The long term support versions are only the .04 ones in even numbered years, so 16.04 was a LTS release but 17.04 (and 19.04) were not.
As the support period for LTS releases is 5 years, 16.04 and 18.04 are currently still supported, but 14.04 has gone EOL in april this year.
The short term releases normally are only supported for about 9 months (until the next one - 6 months later - with a few months overlap).

So yes, 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) has been EOL for a long time already.
