PiAware 8.2 Crashing

You are right that SSH can be done on Windows without PuTTY, but the guide I posted has two parts
(1) Enabling SSH on RPi
(2) installing PuTTY on Windows.

The item (2) can now be done throgh Windows terminal but item (1) is stll valid.

In addition to SSH, the PuTTY can perform many other functions as well, one of these shown in thread linked below. I dont know if Windows terminal can do these as well.
