Cannot locate rpm for putty?

ROCKY_SUPPORT_PRODUCT_VERSION=“8.7”

I wish to install PuTTY on this machine. However DNF does not find a package for it:

$ dnf search putty
Last metadata expiration check: 0:12:04 ago on Fri 09 Dec 2022 11:28:57 AM EST.
No matches found.

When I visit the EPEL website (https://rhel.pkgs.org/8/epel-x86_64/) there is no entry for it although pkgs.org says that this is the authoritative repository.

Where is it?

Hi,

It does work:

[root@rocky8 ~]# dnf search putty
Last metadata expiration check: 1:00:07 ago on Fri 09 Dec 2022 05:05:50 PM CET.
================================= Name Exactly Matched: putty =================================
putty.x86_64 : SSH, Telnet and Rlogin client

I guess you need to do this:

dnf install epel-release
dnf config-manager --enable powertools

some epel packages require powertools, so need to enable that.

That worked, Thank you.

I’m curious; why PuTTY?

It is the vendor recommended software to communicate with their emulation of legacy hardware.
