Excellent article. I have been using this myself for some time now. It's great for giving me access to my network while at work.

I Like to use the following switches :

D:\Software\Putty\PUTTY.EXE -load Thinklife -l yatest -N

-l auto selects my username, pagent.exe is preloaded so I never have to type anything to login.

-N gives no shell access, I use my connection mainly to access to my desktop machine and secure tunnel web browsing from work.

A little creative thinking and you can do all kinds of wonderfull things with this combination of software.

Very well written.
