  1. Set defaults for "quick connect"?

    Is it / would it be possible to set the default terminal type and UTF-8 option in the "quick connect" dialog? It seems to default to "Linux" but I'd prefer "VT100".

  2. Clone session/new tab position

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

  5. Allow PuTTY Profiles to be Re-Imported

    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.

  6. Custom Notes...

    Hi.

    I would like to propose a new feature - Custom Notes for each profile.

    This is very useful of storing passwords etc.

    Coz I always forgot what is the password if someone else asked me since I already set the Penguinet to save password automatically.

    Thank you.

  11. automatic reconnect and cwd to folder when disconnected (optional)

    How about when you get disconnected to have an option, that program tries to autoconnect back and cwd to folder you were in.

    This happens alot on windows, wifi fails, or computer goes to sleep, and you have 10 windows opened, and then you have to manually open everything again.

  12. type t5 and get "tail -500lf"

    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?

  13. off screen windows

    I'm using dual monitors and the "overwrite file?" scp dialogue is going off screen if the scp window is on my second monitor.

    Sure, I can press "enter" but it's a bit annoying :-) Could you fix the window placement code a bit?

  15. SOCKS 5 Proxy TOR

    Apparently, Penguinet is sadly not working with SOCKS 5 (Trying over TOR Network)

    This is a high priority bug imho, forcing customers to use PuTTy due proxy.

  16. Change cursor color

    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!

  18. Parent folder or multiple client select profile session open.

    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…

  20. paste

    When I paste multiple lines of text, they appear as one line without any CR/LF. I have tried with copying directly from Word and from multiple text file apps. I have also tried using xterm, vt100, and Linux all with and without UTF-8. I can see how to add CR/LF when copying text, but can't see anything that affects the past option.
    Any advise?
