Topic "SessionTab-Name from Command-Line"

Author Message


Hey there,

I’m using WinSCP in version 5.5.1. I like it to start WinSCP directly via command-line arguments (e. g. ''C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe sftp://www-data:secret@development.server.tld/ /rawsettings RemoteDirectory=/var/www/some/directory LocalDirectory="C:\workspace\project_root"''

Sometimes I’m using multiple sessions with the same user on the same server, but in different paths and for different reasons.

Is it possible to set the session-name on the tab without having to manage the session by WinSCP?

I.d. I want to set the title on the tab to ''project1'', ''project2'' and ''project3'' instead of three times ''www-data@development.server.tld'' depending on an additional command-line-argument.

Thanks in advance.
