If putty supports it, gpg-agent supports it as well.

Pageant implements the ssh-agent protocol which is what gpg-agent
implements as well.  The only difference in Pageant is that it uses the
Windows message queue for transport which tunnels the standard Unix
ssh-agent protocol.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
