new version 2.8.1 released

  • New feature: Easy private key conversion from OpenSSH to PuTTY format by using the keygen feature of (Tools->Convert OpenSSH key)
  • Copy Files: session names with white spaces now correctly shown / added user and host to session name  (File->Preferences->Copy Files->Set default)
  • Bug fix: Loading shared connections from local cache could cause an app crash


  1. When open a ssh session, it make some awkward that a putty window is showed

    1. If you open up a SSH session, WinSSHTerm will start PuTTY/KiTTY as a new process. After a short time WinSSHTerm will embed the window into a tab. Before it gets embedded it will show up shortly outside of WinSSHTerm for a few milliseconds. I think this is what you meant. To me, that's not a big thing. We'll see if more people are requesting this

  2. Program works great for the most time, got a few things
    -When the session is disconnect I'm unable to "Reconnect", as soon as I detached it it opens in putty and then it is not grayed out.

    - Like to have the option to create a shortkey so it opens in window 2 and so one.

    Thank you in advance!


    1. Thanks. I'm currently improving the reconnect feature, which will be available in version 2.9.0.
      When you open a connection with the Search window, you can switch to the window selection with TAB-key and then select the window with the SPACE-key

  3. Good to know! Installing the new version to test it!
