After you have downloaded putty.exe, run it. You should then be presented with a window that looks like this:
The following steps will configure PuTTY to connect directly to yip.org and make the terminal behave in expected ways. The instructions for port forwarding in the mail and uploading sections of the support pages will assume that you have completed these steps.
Click on the "Keyboard" category under the "Terminal" category on the
left hand side. If you do not see a "Keyboard" category, click on the + beside
the "Terminal" category to expand that tree.
Set the behaviour of the Backspace key to Control-H by clicking the
appropriate radio button.
Click on the "Selection" category under the "Window" category on the left
Set the Action of mouse buttons to xterm by clicking the appropriate
radio button. (This is done to prevent accidentally pasting into the terminal
when one may not be expecting it)
Click on the "Connection" category.
Now click in the text box beside where it says "Auto-login username" and
type in your yip.org username.
Now go to the SSH category in the Connection category.
Set the preferred SSH protocol version to 2.
Follow these steps:
Return to the Session category.
Type "yip.org" without the quotes in the "Host Name (or IP address)" text box.
Set the Protocol: to SSH.
Type "yip" without the quotes in the text box under Saved Sessions.
Click the Save button.
Now you should be able to click "Open" to connect to yip.org using ssh.
Bonus step: If you make a shortcut to PuTTY and add " @yip" without the quotes to the end of the Target line, it will automatically attempt to connect to yip.org with your username without having to deal with the configuration dialog box.
