    • "Safe" pasting

      In order to prevent wrong text pasting could you set up a configurable warning if the text to paste is greater than xx characters?

      • columns

        I have long used Absolute Telnet, but the cost of your license has risen much, Pinguinet is extremely friendly, simple but powerful, the price per license is very reasonable, at this time I am in the test DEMO and soon buy my license , I love PinguiNet but I have only one question how do I keep the Width settings Terminal? because when I open a session again I always leave it in "Use Window's Width" I hope the manual configuration can be saved. Thank you

        • cisco nexus ssh doesn't work

          Using penguinet to ssh to a nexus 3048 running version 6.0.2.

          penguinet succesfully connects to the switch, up to the point of actually showing me the CLI, then reports "the host does not appear to be running an SSH service on the requested port" and force-closes the session again.
          Changing the switch or its config is impossible (its in a corporate data centre)

          ssh to the same switch works fine with Putty

          seems like some bug in penguinet intereacting with the particular behaviour of ssh on this switch hardware/firmware ? using version 2.70 of penguinet.

          • Hi, my connection profiles all crashed.I have a license.

            I would send you a pic, but here I can not. Instead of my pofiles I see some chineese letter. I even think I attacked by virus. Very strange.
            It is computer at work, so I had no reason to think about virus here. It looks like hacked from outside. I even suspect somebody used it from remote.

            • Midnight Commander

              Midnight Commander seems to work fine in Putty but does not look nearly as good nor does it allow you to click on the folders to open them as Putty does.

              Let me know if it is just a configuration issue on my end.

              Thx

              • play sound on newline

                Would be nice to be able to set penguinet to play a sound when a new line is entered on the terminal. Good for a timely reminder when a long-running job is completed.

                • drag multiple connections

                  i am doing an initial setup of penguinet, and have 200+ connections to put in a folder. i spoofed the xml to load the connections, but am finding that i have to select & drag each one separately to the folder rather than being able to select & drag the whole bunch at once. it would be great to be able to perform functions (drag, open, scp, edit shared parameters) on all selected connections at the same time.

                    • dark grey is invisible

                      I got a server application that prints log output in different colors depending on the type (error -> red, warning -> yellow, info -> white, debug -> grey, trace -> dark grey).

                      However PenguiNet displays the dark grey trace-messages transparent (same color as background). Changing the color scheme or selecting the text doesn't make it visible, but copying the text works fine.
                      Putty displays the text correctly.

                      • Forwarding from jump host not working

                        Hello,

                        Since upgrading from 2.54 to 2.61 and 2.62 I have been unable to connect using port forwarding from a jump host. I have had to use putty for either the connection to the jump then use penguinet for the terminal to the remote server, or reverse penguinet for the connection to jump then putty for terminal to remote server. Or I use putty for both.

                        I have rolled back to 2.54 and everything is working fine again.

                        I cannot find anyway to get to the connection, logs if there are any,to see what part of the connection is failing…

                            • inherit password

                              Allow inheritance. I group my ssh sessions together and would like to have an easy way to change passwords among all sessions when my password changes. If I could change the password at the top of the tree, it would flow down to the sessions under it.

                              • Permanently set font size..

                                I have a high resolution screen. When I set "Hacker" font to size 14 on the main bar it adjusts the font to an acceptable size. Then I close it and have to reset the font size every time I open the program. How do I set this permanently?

                                Thanks,

                                • Using PenguiNet with tunnel config as SOCKS proxy

                                  I'm using putty to open a tunnel via SSH to a host and then configuring Firefox using this as a SOCKS proxy.
                                  Can I apply the putty config to PenguiNet? I was unable to do this.

                                  I'm using this config in putty http://d.pr/i/inms and then connect in Firefox using SOCKS on 127.0.0.1:9999

                                  • Support for empty ssh key passphrases

                                    I use empty an pass-phrase for my ssh key on my home network (for convenience, didn't see the need for the extra level of security here).
                                    Would be nice if you could add support for that.

                                      On putty, you can paste your selection using right click. Can this be added somehow?

                                      • question on keyboard shortcuts

                                        Please tell me how to invoke keyboard shortcuts such as Ctrl+right arrow to move to next word. Works in my existing sessions, but how do I get it to work with a new session?

                                        • Select Tabs, Then sort.

                                          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?
