Change / refresh new putty client on netsight server ?

Userlevel 6
is it possible to refresh the putty client on central netsight server to a new version ??

currently Netsight 6.3 / 7.0 uses a putty client V0.60 (year 2007). With current EXOS 21.1 / 16.2 the old ciphers are not accepted any more.

This is good and makes network administration more safe but working with netsight console (java) and putty as CLI Tools is basic working-task.

Currently i changed local on the every pc the putty client to recent V0.67 - which work fine (as a work-around).

But if i login on a new client or a a new user netsight server will push me first the old version.

is it possible to change / refresh putty.exe on netsight server - then all the clients and user will get the new version at once ?!

At most time i am working with the Extreme Netsight appliance (ubuntu linux).

I'd like to know if this is possible too. In fact, I'd like to take it one step further and ask if there is a way to point NetSight to another terminal emulator program altogether rather than Putty.
