    Default Putty Connection manager like app in linux

    I seem to bounce between windows and Linux several times during the course of the year.

    During My most recent foray into windows I discovered Putty Connection Manager. This app embeds putty and allows you to save ssh and telnet connections (including post login commands). You can also save the connections and sort them however you like. It's great for organizing linux clustered servers etc... Tabs are also a plus (yes I know konsole does this part as well)

    So to the point at last. I finally upgraded to OpenSuSe 11.2 and I was looking for an app that does much the same thing.

    Does anyone have any suggestions...

    Thanks for the reply...

    The putty app itself just runs one instance. puttycm (putty connection manager) uses the putty executable but gives you additional functionality. Putty by itself doesn't do the same thing.

    Check out this link to the Connection Manager software: PuTTY Connection Manager

    Thanks,

    I found this thread while searching for an answer to the same question. One answer is to use konsole with split screens. That won't do everything, AFAIK. For example, Putty Connection Manager allows you to issue the same command to multiple sessions at the same time. I don't see a way to do that with konsole. That feature has real value when configuring four identical servers.

    I was shown how to do this in a class where I am learning how to support an install base of over 100 servers.

    Is there a Linux tool that does something like this?

    Do a search for "parallel ssh", there are several open source tools available. You may have to compile from source.

    There is putty in linux, too. I haven't tried, I do not know if it has the
    features you need.

    Putty connection manager is a wrapper around putty. The way we are using it is to access multiple "identical" servers and synchronize their command lines. Suppose you want to install the same collection of RPMs on all of your application server platforms. You synch up all your putty sessions, copy the files to each of the servers, and enter the command once. The command is issued to all servers at the same time, kicking off the installs in parallel.

    I thought it was part of putty. It is very interesting, I like the idea.

    What I have done is having several xterms in the screen, and paste the same
    command on each one. Certainly not a hundred, a dozen or two at most.

    In konsole, if you want to issue the same command to multiple tabs/windows, select "Copy Input To >" under "Edit". I think that is what you are looking for.
