We’ll introduce an option to do this in v2.6
One option is to implment an ldap server and configure your devices/hosts to use the ldap server for authentication. This way you can use a single userid/password for all devices/hosts. Once you import the profiles to another host you can go to the root/default profile and set the userid/password and it will set the userid/password in all profiles within the tree.
We are investigating a new feature to allow users to type into a menu bar and initiate a connection by pressing enter.
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this is more complicated than it might first appear. We are considering extending the Send Commands functionality for SCP.
James, which version are you using? Newer versions come with an option in Send Commands, “Hide text to be sent”, meaning you could use Send Commands for this without exposing a password.
I am on version 2.44. Due to the nature of my work and the strict security where I am working, I cannot have an option to just unhide the password if it is entered into the Send Commands form. Although I have not tested it I am concerend that the export profile might expose the password.
In the overall I am very pleased with the product.
We need an additional login support to sudo to another account and store the password needed for the account being sudo'd to. The "Send Command" option is insufficient for this purpose and would leave a password exposed. Currently I have Send Command set up to detect the $ in my prompt/term and then send "sudo su - <acct+name+here>". Help! I have thousands of accounts across hundreds of servers.
PenguiNet already has a feature to allow local files to be uploaded automatically after editing. Would that help?
In general, the concept of synchronisation sounds useful. Please can you provide more information on the kind of features you would use?
This will be in place for v2.60.
We will include this for xterm terminal types in v2.60.
Currently I am using the Logitech MX series mice and have the Logitech software and Drivers installed and I have no issues with the middle mouse button. I connect Penguinet to Linux, Solaris, AIX, BSD, HP_UX, etc. It works on all connections with the Logitech MX series mice.
