Create Bookmarks Using SSH Secure Shell/SFTP

  1. If you want to create bookmarks for SSH (i.e., SSH, the replacement for telnet), start the SSH Secure Shell program. A window similar to the one below will appear:

    If you want to create bookmarks for SFTP (i.e., sftp, the replacement for ftp), start the SSH Secure Shell SFTP program. A window similar to the one below will appear:

    (sssh-sftp-main.png)

  2. Click the Profiles button and select Add Profile. The window below is a "terminal" window (not a "file transfer" window; we did not want to display two screen shots.)

  3. A window similar to the one below will appear. Enter the name of the profile (a good choice is the name of the computer to which you are connecting), then click Add Current Connection to Profiles.

  4. Click the Profiles button again and select Edit Profile. Select the name of the profile you just created on the left, and enter the host name and user name on the right. Here's an example.

    Note: If you are creating a bookmark for an sftp site, we recommend you name the bookmarks something like computername-SFTP. Because all of the bookmarks look alike, you can remember which ones are for sftp and which ones are for ssh.

  5. Click Ok to add the changes to the profile.
  6. You might have noticed that the Profiles window has a number of tabs at the top (Colors, Keyboard, X11 Tunneling, etc.). Those can be used to change the setup of the individual profiles.

You might try experimenting with these settings, but be forewarned that you could inadvertently break SSH.
