An Illustrated Guide to Git on Windows

Downloading PuTTY

Although you can use the SSH program that comes with git, I prefer to use the PuTTY Agent to keep track of my SSH keys. If you don't already have them, download putty.exe, plink.exe, pageant.exe, and puttygen.exe from the PuTTY web site.

Later in this guide, we will use these programs for securely pushing our changes to a remote server.
