Configure Secure Shell Settings

In most cases Reflection will connect to your host and allow you to log in with your password using the default Secure Shell configuration. Use the Reflection Secure Shell Settings dialog box if you need to configure alternate user authentication methods or to make other changes to your Secure Shell configuration.

To modify the Secure Shell settings for a terminal session

  1. Open the terminal session you want to modify.
  2. Disconnect from the host.
  3. From the Quick Access toolbar, click the Document Settings button.
  4. Click Configure Connection Settings.
  5. Under Network Connection Type, select Secure Shell.
  6. Under Connection Options, enter a host name.
  7. (Optional) Specify a value for SSH configuration scheme.

    If you leave this blank, changes you make to your Secure Shell settings are saved to Secure Shell configuration file under the current host name, and the settings you configure are applied by default to all Secure Shell connections to this host. If you specify a scheme name, changes you make to your Secure Shell settings are saved to the Secure Shell configuration file under the specified scheme name, and the settings you configure are applied to subsequent connections whenever you specify this scheme name.

  8. Click Security.
  9. Use the Reflection Secure Shell Settings dialog box to configure your settings, then click OK.

    Note: Changes you make to the default values are saved to the Secure Shell configuration file when you click OK.
