Putty automatic reconnect after internet interruption

I love working on my servers via SSH by using Putty. I think it’s a great SSH client.

However there’s one thing that annoys me the most: when my internet connection gets interrupted or when after I wake up my computer from sleep, all my Putty instances get disconnected. I have to log in again to all of them, make the initial commands in each of them, etc, etc.

I’ve recently discovered another Putty-fork client, called Putty Tray which you can find here: https://puttytray.goeswhere.com/.

The best new thing added by Putty Tray to the old and best classic Putty are two new options in the Conenction tab, targeting automatic reconnecting after interruptions: “attempt to reconnect on network failure” and “attempt to reconnect on system wake-up”. You can see them on the screenshot below:
