Hello, @KNERD

Looking at the VSCode website it seems like PuTTy is not supported:

You can have a look at the supported SSH clients via the following link bellow and also follow the install link for detailed instructions on how to actually install the ssh client:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
