        • 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.

          • 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.

            • search for connection profile

              I lterally have hundreds of servers and virtual servers to monitor and maintain. I need the ability to search the connection profiles for a conection profile name and have the connection profile tree expand or open up to a specific connection profile.

                  • 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.

                    • 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?

                      • 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?

                            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.

                              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!

                                • 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…

                                    • 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

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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).
