[OT] Putty invocation

2001-01-22 Thread DJ Adams

Hi folks

Am I going mad or is there no way I can start my fav client program
PuTTY and specify a saved 'session' directly with a switch?

(i.e. I can specify a hostname, but I _want_ to specify a session
name - to have my colours / fonts etc)

cheers

I make a shortcut and then put something like this in the Target field in
Properties.

"C:\Program Files\Putty\putty.exe" @SessionName

HTH,

Simon.

And does anyone know how to get putty to save settings like they key
for backspace, etc, rather than my having to set them every time I start
it?

Do you mean setting the backspace to Control-H in the keyboard tab isn't
working, or are there other esoteric things you want to set?

The backspace-ctrl-h. I can set it once in putty, and it works, but if I
quit putty and restart, new sessions don't get it.

You need to change it individually for each session that you save as it's
not a global thing. I've got it working here.

I think everything is stored on a per-session basis.

  So if you want something changed for all sessions you have to change and
  re-save each one.

  I think (having only ever used Putty against two machines running the same
  OS) !
