It is only a file that can be downloaded and put on the desktop and run from there. I have done so in I-cafes, libraries and community centers with public computers, hotel lobbies, churches in many countries. Some place might block it, I suppose, but I haven't run in to any. You can also try running the 'portable' PuTTY from a USB stick as someone has suggested. ////jerry > I can log in to webmin and edit the files via their > file manager.
