  1. Server Tabbar function to resize/grow

    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

  2. Window position should be remembered after reconnecting

    When the connection is lost and I click the reconnect button, the window position is reset, and window is place in some default position. If I have some terminal window setup, I always have to correct it after rebooting the device.

  3. Use the same border for attached and detached connections

    It would be great if all the windows and connections had the same border, inherited from the OS, regardless of whether they're attached or not.

  4. Backspace in emacs

    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).

  6. 'Enter' is sent twice to a Linux host over serial

    Version: 2.70
    Host: Linux
    Connection: Serial

    When I press 'Enter' in the terminal, it's reflected twice on the Linux console (or uBoot console). I guess the host expects LF but gets CRLF instead.

  7. Retain tabs on cut & paste

    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?

  9. What does the send commands do?

    I work in the NOC that we have to ssh into routers and in the routers we have to ping these routers to get avg responds time..

    Example:
    ssh 192.168.1.1
    192.168.1.1#ping 192.168.2.3
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.2.3, timeout is 2 seconds:
    !!!!!
    Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 124/126/128 ms..
    We have to do 10 different pings for each router i ssh into.. is there any way your program will support this.. Please Help.

  10. windows

    Allow connection window to occupy same Position. It keeps moving the next window until I have to manually move every new window I open in order to see the bottom of the screen.

  11. show .. in SCP directory listing

    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…

  12. interactive tabs

    i using secure crt for years. but now i've changed my employer which doesn't have secure crt. now i'm searching for a lower priced alternative.

    what i missed...

    - real tabs (in a row...like browsers)
    - tabs that showing me the status of the session (especially a "activity indicator" for sessions in background!!)

    both features are a must have for an old secure crt fan. ;)

  13. Alt-W closes connection OR opens tool window

    The old beheavor of Alt-W was to open the menu (Window), the new behavior varies.

    If a connection is open, then it is closed.
    If a connection is not present, then it opens the Window menu.

    My muscle reflex when switch between windows was to Alt-W (1,2,3,4), however, that is now very counter productive. And there is no other way to "tab" between windows....

    It’s a fair point. Note, though, that there are two other ways to tab between windows: Ctrl+Tab (forwards) and Ctrl+Shift+Tab (backwards) as well as Ctrl+PgUp (forwards) and Ctrl+PgDn (backwards).

  14. PenguiNet as ssh:// Action-Link responder

    Is it possible - to modify the Windows OS to open ssh:// Action-Links with PenguiNet? PenguiNet maybe could install this automatic?

  18. "Default" session doesn't save the SSH2 keypair setting

    If I try to select an SSH2 key pair for the "Default" session in the connection profiles dialog the setting isn't saved next time I go back into it (dropdown list is just blank).

  19. ssh -N mode missing in application

    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.

    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!
