  1. 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).

      • '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.

        • 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?

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                  • 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. ;)

                    • 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).

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

                          • Console skip new line

                            HI,
                            I tried console to the network devices. It seems PenguiNet skip every 'Questions' automatically.
                            Is there way to work around this?

                            Settings are -
                            Terminal : xterm

                                  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!

                                    • Throttle scp data transfer

                                      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

                                      • Sync with other apps - (and how to export ssh private keys)

                                        For on the go usage, sync with connectbot (android) all my connections would be fantastic. Trying to get round that at the moment using ssh keys, but cannot figure out how to export a private key from penguinet in a format connectbot will like (ssh1-rsa)

                                        • Session Freezing When Pasting Text > 6 lines

                                          Hi. Actually this problem have been recurring for a quite long time ago. The problem is that whenever I paste text that contains more than 6 lines, the session will hang and I have to close it and open the session again.

                                          This does not happen when I paste text in vi mode. It happened when I paste text directly onto the terminal prompt.

                                          I have tested the same situation with SecureCRT and it has no such problem.

                                          Hope you guys could kindly fix this.

                                          Thank you.
