Description James Cloos 2013-02-11 19:10:46 UTC
putty and pssh both install /usr/bin/pscp, in both cases because they use a p prefix to differentiate from the openssh command.

pssh uses the p prefix for all of its commands.

putty uses p for four and putty for two.

Perhaps putty should use puttyscp, puttysftp, puttylink and puttyterm for consistency and to ensure no future collisions???
