  1. TIP: “sudo port install putty”… this will take a long time if you are installing it for the first time…. and make sure you are connected to the internet

  2. Hello,
    When I try to run putty it gives me this message:

    $ putty

    (process:2660): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
    Using the fallback ‘C’ locale.

    (putty:2660): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    XXXXX-MacBook-Pro:~ xxxxxxx$

    Any idea what to do?

    Cheers
