    Hello everyone,

     

    I need to connect by ssh to a server from a linux server, but I don't want to use the default java console. I want to use linux console or linux putty console. I know how to do this by using Windows adding putty in TCP/UDP services, but I don't know how can I add the linux console or linux putty here (Client Application):

     

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Cristian, I've tried using syntax like "/usr/bin/xterm -e /usr/bin/ssh ….”. It works when launched from a terminal, but no luck with PAM so far. Do you have an SSH client such as PuTTY installed that launches its own window? We'll check on that later on and let you know if we get it going.

    Cristian, We installed PuTTY on one of our Linux servers and the service is working now with the following client application string:

     

    /usr/bin/putty -ssh -l <user> -P <First Port> <Local IP>

     

    PAM automatically inserts the user's password, no need to provide it as an argument to the putty command.

    That works great!

     

    It also works this way

    /usr/bin/putty -ssh -l <user> -pw <Password> <Local IP>

     

    Thanks a lot.
