That lends itself well to giving each saved session it's own window

Actually it's not.

You see I had to change the /etc/screenrc file and turn the hardstatus line to show that I was in a screen.

I think your getting confused as what I want to do has nothing to do with putty.

As I can also use terminal on my Apple Mac and it also shows the window title different on the two servers which I am comparing, so if one shows it how I want and the other one does not, and the putty client or whatever client has the configurations identically for each server, then the only thing that must be different is the server itself surely, as they have both been configured the same do you follow me ?
