  1. In PuTTY, we had the ability to change the cursor color - which we used to gently remind us what environment we were connected to - production/test/dev/etc. I don't see that option under Appearance or Colour Scheme. Please add this feature. Thanks!

  2. In the send commands, I have sudo then a cd commands. Works. If I change the dir to cd into, it stops working. I've tried everything, including just cd /home. I've encountered this numerous times and figured I'd mention it. I don't know if it's the pause in the sudo authentication or what....

  3. Would it be possible to do this? VanDyke's SecureCRT does this which I find very helpful as my company requires that I store the settings and profiles on an encrypted disk if I want to be able to work from home. By using a custom folder and setting it to the encrypted disk I'm able to make a change to the settings or profiles at home and have it picked up automatically at work and vice-versa.

    I really like PenguiNet and would like o switch to it from SecureCRT but this is a deal-breaker for me at the moment.

    Thanks…

    Hi,
    How many of the settings do you need to be stored on the encrypted disk? Absolutely everything, or just the details for connecting to a host? Would using an encrypted USB stick be an option?

  4. I am trying to setup a connection using SSH with Pub Key auth. My newly created key is not showing in the drop down for SSH2. Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Rich

  5. I love the titlebar/status configurations, but can you do the same for the tabs? I frequently have 10-20 windows open, and it's difficult to distinguish between them. It would be nice to have 2 fields here, tab display and tab hover. The idea would be something like my tab shows "box1234", but when I hover over it it gives the full detail (e.g. box1234 - Fabrication test box). For now I've using descriptive profile names, but adding a description to the profile would really be helpful for this as well.

    We are considering adding an option to Connection Profiles > Appearance to allow you to define the tab name / mouse-over and also simply displaying much more information in the mouse-over.

  6. When trying to type a "#" in SSH session it does not show up. Whats wrong?

    Frank, Thanks for the report. In connection profiles, under “Login”, what do you have “Terminal type” set to? Are you using SSH, Telnet or Serial? Which font are you using? What country are you in (more specifically, what country’s keyboard layout are you using)?

  7. Implementing z-modem support, with resume.

  9. Add an option to clear the scroll buffer. Sometimes, while debugging a large amount of build output, I find it easier to just throw away the scroll buffer so I can easily tell where I'm at in my output stream.

  10. I should be able to rename a tab. For example, right click -> rename. Sometimes I'll open quite a few windows to a build box. I'd like to be able to rename them based on what product I'm working on. So this isn't a case of a different profile, just more of a temporary rename for that session.

  11. Please add an option to insert the new tab for a cloned session after the current tab instead of adding it to the end.

  12. Clicking on an active tab causes the focus to shift to the neighboring tab. Clicking on the same tab again brings the focus back. Clicking on an active tab should never cause it to lose focus. The difference in appearance between the active tab and other tabs is fairly small, so it is easy to get confused about which tab is active.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We had originally modelled it on how the Windows Start Bar works but I think we will look to make it work more like tabbed browsing on Internet Explorer, Chrome et al.

  13. When downloading with SCP, add a progress bar in the taskbar's icon (like Chrome, Steam, etc..)

  14. i am doing an initial setup of penguinet, and have 200+ connections to put in a folder. i spoofed the xml to load the connections, but am finding that i have to select & drag each one separately to the folder rather than being able to select & drag the whole bunch at once. it would be great to be able to perform functions (drag, open, scp, edit shared parameters) on all selected connections at the same time.

  15. It would be nice if penguinet can resize the taskbar/servertabs like in ms windows the taskbar. So it is possible to connected to more servers and keep the overview of all. I have generell the problem that I have to many tabs open. This would solve the problem

  16. Hi, version 2.53 (I ugpgraded this morning) appears to ignore the escape key in vi. I realise I can use Ctrl-C in this version, but have a preference for escape. Is escape likely to make a comback?

    Hi Gill,
    Which older version are we comparing with here? What OS and version is running on your remote host? Does changing “Terminal type” on the “Login” tab in Connection Profiles fix this for you?

    James, which version are you using? Newer versions come with an option in Send Commands, “Hide text to be sent”, meaning you could use Send Commands for this without exposing a password.

  18. Showing .. in directory listing allows easier keyboard navigation without having to go for mouse every time I need to go up a directory. I can hit Enter on directories to go into them, but have no keyboard method to get back.

    Thanks for the suggestion. If possible, we’d prefer not to add “..”. The aim is to make an Explorer-like interface, and this isn’t something that Explorer does.

    Would keyboard shortcuts work for you? We could make alt+left, alt+up and backspace all go to the directory above…

  19. hey, I work at a company with many servers. I am connected to at least 5 at a time, and I would be connected to many more, but the problem is when I get disconnected, I have to manually reconnect to everything.

    penguinet handles this decently well currently, as I can just click reconnect.. but, I will typically SSH from one server to another (due to how we have security setup), and if I get disconnected I still have to do all this manually.

    also, a reboot will of course force me to open a connection to each server again.

    Thanks for the idea. You can do something approaching what you want already: within “Send commands” on the “Login” tab, you can set up a script to ssh from some server on to another server.

    On the “Options” tab, you can set a parent profile to connect to a bunch of profiles underneath it (“Connect to all children”).

    I realise this isn’t quite what you’re after, but as a stopgap solution, you may find it helpful.

  20. Everytime I open penguinet I open four different connections, and then tile them horizontally. it would be great to be able to:

    1) Save a group of connections, and their window locations so you can load the entire group at once and restore your workspace.

    2) Have "Reconnect" windows appear in the exact same place/size as the original window.
