    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I'm not sure that it caches them at all. When you tell it where to look, I think that it simple saves the location that you gave it. Where that information is kept, I'm not sure, but you may want to read the man page to find out, or look to see if your user directory contains a folder such as .putty.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    To which keys do you refer?

    I assume putty is being run from a Windows client and CentOS is the remote site to which you are connecting?

    By default, no keys are copied from the client to the server, just b/c you are connecting. However, you can use public key/private key authentication in putty (which is just ssh, really) to allow password-less login from the client to the server. In that case, the public key would be copied (securely, of course) from the client to the CentOS box, and appended to this file:
    Code:
    ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2
    where ~ represents the HOME directory of the remote user.
