  2. When transfering data and working on the same server, scp will exhaust all of the bandwidth thus making it difficult to work. This would be solved by adding the option to throttle the scp connection

  3. The thing I like most about gnome-terminal is the fact that it understands the middle mouse scroll. Especially in vim. Penguinet is a freaking amazing and it would awesome if this worked.

  4. I'm coming from SSH Explorer and they had this neat toolbar up top that allowed you to create groups and custom commands. Then all you had to do was select the group and you could auto-run that command you wrote. It is kinda like having batch scripts ready to go in your ssh client. Was great for installing/running scripts that I have to do almost on a daily basis with the servers I manage. To get a better idea of what I'm talking about, go download the SSH Explorer free trial and see how they have it.

  5. Among hundreds of other things we use a terminal client for, we keep a company IRC channel open.

    URL's which are entered on-channel have to be manually copied/pasted ito a browser, which is suboptimal.

    Please - consider including this functionality in future versions.

  6. I have some machines to which I can not make a direct connection, but I have to connect via another machine (also via ssh). This is partially possible now by using the "send commands" feature of Penguinet, but it is not very convenient and does not work for SCP sessions. WinSCP supports this already

    This is already technically possible (see below), but I see your point. We could make this easier, such as building a dependency between connections.


    Do this by:
    1. Starting a first connection with a tunnel (from local-machine port 2222, via machine A, to machine B port 22, say)
    2. Start a second connection via that tunnel (setting in profiles
    window: host localhost, port 2222).

  7. It would be sweet if you could clone a scp session from a window and it would then drop you into your current directory. I know there's no easy way to do this cause your current directory isnt available to penguinet. If you guys ever figured that out it would be cool too if you could clone a terminal session and have it drop you into that sessions current directory. Penguinet is awesome! keep up the good work

  8. I have many profiles and it's a nuisance to get the same always used aliases into each single unix-shell... and perhaps my colleagues or the customer don't like these aliases (which they get with their standard-login).

    The solution could be to have something like Word-Auto-Completion. If I type #t5 penguinet might translate it automatically to "tail -500lf"...
    Could be profile-scheme-dependent or general.

    You could already do something similar with keyboard mappings (definable under Tools|Keyboard mappings). Here, you could define Ctrl+T to paste the text “tail -500lf”. Does that help, or do you really want multi-key aliases?

  9. Hello,

    I would like to request an option that will be capable of hiding scrollbar.

    Thanks.

  10. It would be great to be able to make/take canned config files (routers, etc) and upload them line by line automatically like in hyperterm. (see transfer menu in hyperterm)

  11. For me this is a killer ... This ssh client appears to not support a "ssh -N .." mode. Typically useful for when you want to connect but only forward ports behinds the connected server.

    PenguiNet already has a feature to allow local files to be uploaded automatically after editing. Would that help?

    In general, the concept of synchronisation sounds useful. Please can you provide more information on the kind of features you would use?

  13. As a Director of IT, I've used Penguinet since it's first inception. I love it so much that it has been my only remote access program for the past 9 years.

    The one feature that I would love to have at this point is the ability to select either a parent folder or to use the control key to select multiple client profiles to open all sessions at once.

    In my enterprise I have many systems that are redundant or in clusters (i.e. appserver1->appserver5) and I have to select one, open the SSH session, go back into the profiles, select…

  14. Your response to my last question (thanks!) pointed me to the Connection Profiles' Input tab, which has a "Send Backspace as Ctrl-?" option.
    When this is turned on, Ctrl-h in emacs (which apparently should invoke help) sends a backspace.
    When it's turned off, Ctrl-h invokes help but so does Backspace.
    In both cases, direct entry of Ctrl-? seems to do nothing.
    Backspace to Delete is an obvious solution, but backspace then doesn't work in the minibuffer (it appears as DEL rather than removing the previous character).

  15. Asking if I want to import my profiles from PuTTY: Very cool! Giving me the option to re-import those profiles after I accidentally screw something up: even cooler.

    Do you want to perform the tar on the remote host?

    If so, there are technical constraints due to the nature of SCP – we don’t have access to a shell to execute commands.

    A possible solution would be to have PenguiNet initiate a terminal session (with Send Commands) in the background. Is this what you envisaged?

    Finally, please note that you can turn on compression which will help in the transfer time of files without having to tar!

  18. When highlighting (copy) tabbed code from vi, when you paste tabs are converted to their space equivalent...

    The problem here is that we can’t tell, as a teminal emulator, that those are tabs. Say the cursor is on the left-hand side of the screen. The editor (be it vi or another editor) needs to output 6 tabs before outputting text. It might send “\t\t\t\t\t\t”. But it might equally send “\x1B[24G”. Since the second options is one byte less, many editors (and other apps) will choose the second option. At that point, we can no longer say whether those 24 blank characters at the start of the line are tabs or not.

    The best we can do here would be to provide a setting along the lines of “when multiples of spaces appear at the start of a line, convert them to tabs”. You could then set to the tab size you normally use.

    How does that sound?

  19. I would love to be able to select tabs and then choose a window sort.

    For instance. I usually have 10+ tabs open, but would love an easy way to side - by - side compare two or three of them. So, if I could select the ones I wish to see, then click "Tile Vertically" and easily have them side by side... That would be awesome.

    I like the idea of this – reminds me of the Windows 7 advert here in the UK or IE’s “Quick Tabs”.

    We have a number of user interface changes being debated. For example, a quick way to zoom in and out of terminal sessions would benefit you here I think.

    Any other feedback out there?

  20. Instead of having to navigate my very large tree of hosts, it would be nice to have a quick open text input box that you could type in the connection name. This could also provide suggestions based on the users input.
