Topic "problems when setting default preferences"

Author Message

I made the mistake of making some settings my default, and now every time I try and open the program it is not able to connect. It gives me the option to either retry or exit, and I have no way of getting back into the program to change my default settings to something that works. there are several ways you can fix it, but i would recommend that if my custom default settings do not work, the program should revert to your default settings.

All i did was tell it to connect to a port that isn't listening for ssh connections, so its not like i made any major changes to the config.

I was able to successfully remove the default settings from the windows registry, but this still might be a problem for people who are not comfortable editing the registry.

Why don't you change port back to 22 and save your preferences as default again?
