PuTTY is a free and open-source terminal emulator, serial console and network file transfer application. It supports several network protocols, including SCP, SSH, Telnet and raw socket connection, it can connect to a serial port. The name "PuTTY" has no official meaning. PuTTY was written for Microsoft Windows, but it has been ported to various other operating systems. Official ports are available for some Unix-like platforms, with work-in-progress ports to Classic Mac OS and macOS, unofficial ports have been contributed to platforms such as Symbian, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone. PuTTY was written and is maintained by Simon Tatham, a British programmer. PuTTY supports many variations on the secure remote terminal, provides user control over the SSH encryption key and protocol version, alternate ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, Blowfish, DES, Public-key authentication. PuTTY supports SSO through GSSAPI, including user provided GSSAPI DLLs, it can emulate control sequences from xterm, VT220, VT102 or ECMA-48 terminal emulation, allows local, remote, or dynamic port forwarding with SSH.

The network communication layer supports IPv6, the SSH protocol supports the zlib@openssh.com delayed compression scheme. It can be used with local serial port connections. PuTTY comes bundled with command-line SCP and SFTP clients, called "pscp" and "psftp" and plink, a command-line connection tool, used for non-interactive sessions. PuTTY does not support session tabs directly. PuTTY development began late during year 1998, was a usable SSH-2 client by October 2000. PuTTY consists of several components: PuTTY: the Telnet, SSH client itself, which can connect to a serial port PSCP: an SCP client, i.e. command-line secure file copy. Can use SFTP to perform transfers PSFTP: an SFTP client, i.e. general file transfer sessions much like FTP PuTTYtel: a Telnet-only client Plink: a command-line interface to the PuTTY back ends. Used for SSH Tunneling Pageant: an SSH authentication agent for PuTTY, PSCP and Plink PuTTYgen: an RSA, DSA, ECDSA and EdDSA key generation utility pterm: an X11 client which supports the same terminal emulation as PuTTY Comparison of SSH clients Tera Term mintty WinSCP Official website

Orléans – Bricy Air Base

Orléans – Bricy Air Base is a French Air Force (French: Armée de l'Air base. The base is located 6 miles north-northwesst of Ingré near the city of Orléans; the mission of the base is tactical airlift. Three tactical transport squadrons One SIGINT/ELINT squadron. Group telecommunications. Commando Parachutistes de l'Air. 27 Transall C-160F 5 Lockheed C-130H Hercules 8 Lockheed C-130H-30 c11 Airbus A400M Orléans-Bricy Air Base was built prior to World War II as a French Air Force facility. It was seized by the Germans in June 1940 during the Battle of France, was used as a major Luftwaffe military airfield during the occupation. LG 1 stationed Junkers Ju 88A-5 day/night interceptors at the base, it was liberated by Allied ground forces about 22 August 1944 during the Northern France Campaign. The USAAF IX Engineering Command 832d, 833dd and 877th Engineer Aviation Battalions began clearing the base of mines and destroyed Luftwaffe aircraft and repairing operational facilities for use by American aircraft.

Subsequently, Bricy became a USAAF Ninth Air Force combat airfield, designated as "A-50" about 24 August, only a few days after its capture from German forces. The repaired base became home to numerous combat units. 394th Bombardment Group, flew B-26 Marauders from 18 September through 8 October 1944 440th Troop Carrier Group, flew C-47 Skytrains from 2 November 1944 through 18 October 1945. The C-47s pulled gliders in the airborne assault across the Rhine; the Americans returned control of the base to the French Air Force at the end of October 1945 and it returned to being a French military airfield. After the war, the base was rebuilt. An 8000' new jet runway was laid down along with two circular marguerite systems of hardstands that could be revetted with earth for added protection; the Marguerite consist of fifteen to eighteen hardstands around a semicircular taxiway. Each hardstand can hold one or two aircraft, allows the planes to be spaced 150 feet apart; each marguerite is dispersed at each end of the runway, allowing the aircraft to be launched quickly.

Each squadron is assigned to a separate hangar/hardstand complex. The wartime main runway was extended to become the taxiway for the new jet runway. Additional dispersed aircraft parking, ramp space and hangars were constructed, along with a new administrative and personnel area. A 4000' grass runway was constructed for glider and small aircraft landings. Bricy will be the home of the upcoming Airbus A400M new European tactical cargo aircraft for the French Air Force.
