 +===== Putty SSH Client =====
 +You may run a unix command remotely, such as '​passwd'​ to change your password,
 +or '​quota'​ to view your usage quota, from Windows using the putty ssh client.
  
 +First, download putty from:
 +
 +http://​the.earth.li/​~sgtatham/​putty/​latest/​x86/​putty.exe
 +
 +Putty is a single .exe file that requires no installation,​ and will not alter
 +or clutter your system.
 +
 +Now, start putty, enter your hostname (for instance, backup.opendocman.com),​
 +and select the SSH radio button. ​ On the bottom of that first screen,
 +change the value of "close window on exit" to:  '​Never'​.
 +
 +Then in the left-hand side of the putty configuration screen, click once
 +on the SSH choice (near the bottom). ​ At the very top of that config
 +screen (labeled "​Options controlling SSH connections"​) enter a command
 +(like passwd or quota) into the "​Remote Command"​ textbox. ​ Then just click the
 +"​Open"​ button on the bottom. ​ The command you have chosen will be
 +executed on the remote end.
 +
 +If this is the first time you have connected to our system via SSH, putty
 +may warn you of that, and ask you to store our SSH key for future connections.
 +We recommend this.
