[resolved] Multiple SSH Sessions

[resolved] Multiple SSH Sessions

dominicldominicl Member
edited July 2012 in Help

Hi

I've seen things about tmux but it's for linux and I'm not sure how to go about using it. Basically, I currently use PuTTY for SSH sessions but I'd like something that I can control multiple VPS's from 1 window and I believe tmux does that but it's for linux and my computer is Windows.

My VPS's, however are all CentOS/Linux based.

    Use putty to run tmux on 1 master node. Master node connects to all other nodes in tmux.

  • @black said: Use putty to run tmux on 1 master node. Master node connects to all other nodes in tmux.

    Ah okay, so buy an LEB or something, install tmux on it and then I can connect to all of the others via that?

    Are there any other options?

    I run tmux locally :)

    tmux is not for Linux, it is for any UNIX-like OS.

  • I use SecureCRT - they have a $20 student licence available and it's well worth the money. Failing that there are plenty of tabbed versions of PuTTY available like SuperPuTTY

    Do you have linux as your main OS on your PC though?

    Nope.

    The best SSH client is OpenSSH, and its only available for UNIX-like OS's.

    I remember this SSH client my father needed for work that supported multiple tabs and protocols, I think it was called multiview or something.

    If you are running Windows, you can install cygwin and add openssh, then there is an overlay called Console2 that works with cygwin that also enables tabbed sessions.

    I run the BSD variant OS X. :P

    If your on Windows and really need Windows, use Cgywin or a VM.

  • Looks like I might get an LEB or something and use tmux. Does anybody else use that, apart from who have already mentioned?

    For PuTTY, check out PuTTYCS. You could also look into SaltStack, but I don't think that's exactly what you're after. (Doesn't take long to learn Salt).

  • @telephone - thanks, but will probs just use tmux for now. It looks like more what I'm after.

  • Never had much fun with Cygwin on my 64Bit Windows... Installation guide plox? -- Always seems to not work for me.

  • Anyone know how to get tmux to work and how to use it? I'm a bit stuck. Using CentOS 6.

    Not sure why the line is coming out as special characters - any ideas??

  • blackblack Member

    Set putty to UTF-8 instead of ISO something.

    Thanks, how would i do that?

  • BBTNBBTN Member

    Windows -> Translation -> Remote character set.

  • Sorry - i don't really understand that. Tmux is for Linux

  • blackblack Member

    It's not tmux, it's putty.

  • Thanks. Is there a way to save putty settings once theyre edited, as when I re open putty, it just goes back to ISO?

    Also, I've got it like this so far http://gyazo.com/43cff7533d13bba0a15f163bfe0192fe

    how can I add another window below those 2? I've tried but it doen't want to do it as easily as the others.

  • Resolved :D Can be closed.

    The best solution is.... install Linux on your computer :) You'd have a tabbed Terminal app for your remote connections. More than that, so many aspects of working with remote Linux boxes just becomes easier when you're also running Linux locally.

    Correction, any UNIX-like OS.

    People always forget BSD and its derivatives.

    If you're computer can handle it, running VirtualBox in Seamless mode works wonders!

    this is not LET style :)

    it's better to keep this thread going so maybe we maybe found another usefull tools, rather that asking similiar question on another thread

    Anyone know any other windows-based ones that I could try?

    Edit: decided to use MTPutty instead :)

  • tommytommy Member

    MTPuTTY maybe?

    Ok, this thread FORCED me to try that tmux stuff. Is the second time in the week that I hear about it. And I must say this is amazing :D!

  • Didn't get on with it personally. That's why i'm now using MTPuTTY for Windows ;-)

    And I have other window :P

    This is amazing. In combination with MoSH this is da sh*t!

  • @telephone said: If you're computer can handle it, running VirtualBox in Seamless mode works wonders!

    Yes. But under Linux with a Windows VM for when you need it :)

  • Change the encoding to fix those special characters - they should be lines ;-)
