I tend to favour the SSH client built into Windows 10 these days, instead of PuTTY.

Mainly because it's preinstalled (I don't think you have to enable the client), and it's OpenSSH, so it's compatible with OpenSSH keys, where PuTTY uses its own key format.

I do as well. The only other thing I use is MSYS2+mintty if I need proper TTY support (although the new Windows Terminal should be able to handle it too) or WinSCP if I need better integration.

Yeah, Windows Terminal is quite nice, although it still has its issues. Main I've come across is that there is no scrollback when using the inbuilt telnet client.

I found that out while connecting to my H2O over telnet.

Personally, I prefer Putty. The scrollback buffer can be a life saver. Perhaps if the Windows SSH client had the ability to save connections with meaningful names and the ability to easily use serial connections, I might reconsider.

You can give meaningful names to OpenSSH connections. In my %userprofile%\.ssh\config file I have the following for my Aura H2O:
Code:
Host koboh2o
  HostName 192.168.1.194
  User root
And can connect using:
Code:
ssh koboh2o
Not sure what you mean by scrollback buffer in this particular instance.

But yeah, I don't think there's an in-built option for serial consoles, so...

I don't need to set a host name for the connection in Putty. Once I have established the connection to a device, I save the connection and give it a name such as PA3260-A and PA3260-B, Serial Com4 (a serial/USB plugged into USB port 1), etc.

And working with Cisco, HP/Aruba/Nimble, Palo Alto, etc., there are times when a serial connection is the only way to go. Nothing like a Cisco 3750 deciding to glitch it's configuration to make you appreciate a serial console and have extreme dislike for a cell phone.

As for the scrollback buffer? Simply that I can page backwards for the number of lines I specify in Window/Lines of scrollback. My usual setting is 4096. It's handy when you are trying to view the entire configuration output where some of our switches run to over 2000 lines. Set "terminal length 0" (Cisco), "show run" and then page back to the good bits. It reduces the swearing at the gentleman who got over-enthused in segmenting the network.

1. So you're saying that I have to run everything from the computer? Or can I use KFMon or NickelMenu to launch some things from the device itself?
2. The only thing I have really been able to manage is FTP with WinSCP.
Oh yeah, FTP is pretty useful.

Is there a way to launch things like Python directly from the Kobo without having to connect from a computer? If so, how? Can I use KFMon?

You can use NickelMenu with the cmd_* actions to launch a command the same as you would over telnet/ssh.

You don't?

Python is a *programming language*.

python3 is the CLI shell for said programming language.

You could technically start the latter with cmd_spawn, but the I stands for "Interface", which means it's "Interactive" (and the CL stands for "Command Line"), which means you really don't want to do that.

What you *can* do is start Python *scripts* with NM/KFMon.
