Tool of the week: HotSSH

November 29th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

HotSSH has been around for sometime but I recently found out that it exists.  It’s basically an gui interface to SSH Secure Shell in GNOME and brings some ease in managing ssh connections and etc.

HotSSH is an interface to Secure Shell, for GNOME and OpenSSH. It intends to be a better experience than simply invoking “ssh” from an existing terminal window.

  • Fast search-based interface for new connections
  • Also display and search of local (Avahi) SSH servers
  • Tabbed display with automatic session saving (Firefox style)
  • Status bar with information like latency to server and output of remote uptime
  • Close integration with OpenSSH features like connection sharing (near-instant new tabs)
  • NetworkManager integration to easily reconnect after a network change, great for laptops

You can download it here.
