You want to use Putty to access your server by SSH or to use more advanced setup like SSH Keys etc?

Where exactly did you get stuck using Putty?

Well I don't really know the features in SSH. Can someone tell me what they are.

Be more specific, I for one have no idea what it is your asking, are you having trouble logging into an ssh server with Putty? Are you seeking general knoweldge about ssh?

Indeed. OP, it's used for remotely managing your server, securely. How securely is up to you - but by default all tunnels are at least encrypted. It's telnet with encryption and a lot of other bells & whistles ;).
