Hello, @KNERD

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

https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/remote/ssh-tutorial

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!

Alex
