Topic "More robust console?"

Author Message

Thank you! I've just converted from FTP for good.

In future versions, why not make the console more Putty-like? Sometimes I have to use both a Putty telnet window and a WinSCP window so I can run CVS commands and input my password. It would be nice to use WinSCP to browse the directories and transfer files, then quickly pop open a console window to do some CVS work and be done.

Thanks for a great product! Wink

Full-featured terminal console is not compatible with WinSCP session. WinSCP session transfers raw data, while for console, some characters (codes) have special meaning. So to implement your request, I would have to open two connections with the server, exacly the same thing as when you open both Putty and WinSCP.
