PuTTY known_hosts

PuTTY known_hosts

Where does putty store it’s known_hosts?

I asked myself this question today after battling a git extensions bug where you can’t type in the console window and as a result can’t add the host to the known hosts.

The answer:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SoftWare\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys

To manually add hosts, use plink.

plink.exe yourservername

Hope it helps you.
