    Putty is an ssh client. You will need to install an ssh server for your distro. I am assuming you are using Debian so you will want to install openssh-server. Once that is installed, start it with (as root)
    /etc/init.d/ssh start
    I am not sure if that is the exact process but give that a try.

    Once that is done, you can simply enter your IP in putty and off you go.
