It is a SSH Client

If you don't know what that is, chances are you have no use for it.

Uses

I know that this is pretty much the same as the original question (excuse my noobiness) but what exactly can PuTTY be used for? I know a fair deal about TCP/IP networking and I have never came accross this.

If you don't know...

you don't need it. If you don't know what Telnet and SSH are, you don't need them. Most people don't. Unless they have a Linux box they manage. Wikipedia can explain more about what telnet and SSH are.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
