SSH/Telnet Account Manager

This dialog allows user SSH/Telnet accounts to be configured.  This may be accessed with the SSH/Telnet Console command in the Views/Lists submenu of the View menu.  Once the console is visible the Accounts button may be pressed to present the SSH/Telnet  Account Manager dialog

 

An account specifies the server to be connected to and the user identification that will be used to connect to the server.

 

The Add Account button allows you to specify a new account name.  The account to modify may be selected from the list of accounts.  If any changes have been made to the account a prompt will be shown asking if the changes should be kept.

 

The Remove Account button immediately removes the active/selected account from the accounts list.

 

The Set Default Account button sets the active/selected account as the default account specified by an asterisk "*" following the account name in the list.

 

The SSH/Telnet Account Manager has options organized under five different tabs: General, Advanced, Proxy, Authentication and Terminal.

 

The General tab includes the following configuration options:

 

Account

This is the name to be used for the configured account.  This name will appear in the list to the left of the configuration options when changes are saved.

 

Protocol

This dropdown allows users to select either SSH or Telnet protocol be used for the account.  If SSH is selected, this instructs UltraEdit/UEStudio to only connect with SECURE SHELL with the protocol specified under the Authentication tab.  All transfers are encrypted and the encryption algorithm is negotiated with the server.  If this is set the transfer dialogs will show a "lock" symbol indicating the transfer is secure.

 

Server

This is the server that you wish to connect to such as ultraedit.com.  If preferred the IP Address in the form xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx may be entered.

 

Port

This is the port used by UltraEdit/UEStudio for the SSH/Telnet protocol.  The default is 22 for SSH and 23 for Telnet.  This may be changed if required.

 

Username

This is the username used to log into the server. 

 

Password

This is the password used with the username to log into the server.  This should be the password for the username as provided by the site administration.

 

Save Password

This checkbox determines if UltraEdit/UEStudio will save the password for later reference.  If not, the user will be prompted for the password as required. Note: if the password is saved it is stored on the system.  It is encrypted however, the encryption mechanism is unsophisticated and should not be relied upon as a method of security.

 

The Advanced tab includes the following configuration options:

 

KeepAlive Timeout

This option specifies the interval (in seconds) at which connection test packets should be sent to the server.

 

Auto-Disconnect Timeout

This option specifies the interval (in seconds) that UltraEdit/UEStudio should wait before terminating a session that has had no activity.

This option may be used to specify a command which will be executed automatically upon successful completion.  After the command has been executed the terminal session will be automatically disconnected.

 

Session Logging

If this option is selected, all console output will be captured and written to the file specified in the textbox below.

 

Log File

This is the path to the file that will be used to log console output from each session.  Users may specify the path and file name manually or browse to the directory/file to be used.

 

Append new sessions to file

If this option is selected the output from each successive session will be appended to the output from the previous session.  If this option is not selected, the output of each successive session will overwrite the output from the previous session.

 

The Proxy tab includes the following configuration options:

 

Use Proxy

This enables the proxy settings and configures this account to connect through the specified proxy.  If connecting directly to the Internet the proxy settings should not be enabled.  If connecting via a proxy on a LAN it will be necessary to set up the proxy settings.

HTTP - (CONNECT)

Relay

SOCKS4

SOCKS5

Windows - (Internet Explorer)

Proxy Username

This is the username used to log into the proxy. 

 

Proxy Password

This is the password used with the username to log into the proxy.  This should be the password for the username as provided by the site administration.

 

The Authentication tab includes the following configuration options:

 

Authentication

This allows the user to specify the protocol and type of authentication to be used with the server.  The following protocols are supported:

 

Auto

If this option is selected connection will first be attempted with SSH2.  If this is not supported by the server SSH1 will be used for the connection.

SSH1

If this option is specified ONLY SSH1 will be used to connect to the server.

SSH2

If this option is specified ONLY SSH2 will be used to connect to the server.

 

The following authentication types are supported:

 

Password Only

This requires the username/password to be provided and no public/private key pair is used.

Public Key Only

This requires the use of the public/private key pair to be used.  The private key location must be specified in the Private Key Path.

Password and Public Key

This allows the user to specify the public/private key and/or the username/password.

This allows the user to indicate that the private key is password protected.  If this is the case, the user will be prompted for the password once per session, or after changing the account settings.

Private key path

The user may browse to or manually specify the path to the existing private key.  The authentication method must be supported by the server.  The keys used should be in OpenSSH format and may be RSA or DSA type keys.
