I need putty, as it apparenly includes a "Log all session output" 
option, which is needed.

>From my understanding, putty allows both the logging of a connect 
session with a remote system, and, the transferral of material between 
the remote session and the local host - allowing for material to both be 
saved from the remote system to the local system, and, files from the 
local system, to be put into the session.

I have been using ssh (from my understanding, vulnerabilities have 
occurred with openssh, and I do not know whether the ssh that I have 
been using, involves openssh), but I am not aware of anyability to 
weither log a session, or to allow inputting files from the local 
system, into the session (notsomuch into the remote system, as 
transferring text into the session and out of the session).
