Coloring of syntax in SSH sessions


it would be very helpfull if you could make it so that certain words in SSH session get a color.

It would also be nice if you could choose those words and colors freely or use a template such as 'Cisco network devices' or 'Linux distributions'.

Your competitors such as MobaXterm and Devolutions already have this possibility.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

 I had the v5 beta for a time and didn't see any keyword highlighting available. Did it not make it into this beta?

Can I have an update on this, please?

I'm sorry for the confusion. The text highlighting configuration is in the current beta. Go to the Colors page and select the tab Text Highlighting.

Totally forgot, that I moved the configuration to the Colors page ;) Sorry about that...


It looks like these are only available for Rebex connections? Is there nothing for Putty based connections? We have well over 100 putty based connections, if Rebex is the only way, is there a way to bulk change our existing connections?

Hi Adam,

you are right, this is only available for Rebex based connections. The reason we cannot support that for PuTTY based connection is simply because PuTTY does not support that feature. The way PuTTY is integrated is very simple and we actually just start PuTTY.exe. If PuTTY implements this feature and we can control is by writing the configuration to the registry as we do with all the other PuTTY settings, we can also enable this for PuTTY.

Switching your existing connections from PuTTY to Rebex in bulk is quite simple. Check out this short videos on how to use the dashboard and the bulk-edit feature:

For new objects, use the Aplication -> Default Sertings folder to setup all the default values.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks Stefan,

This is great info, but it doesn't seem to allow me to change it to Rebex. When I bulk edit I am only allowed to change the terminal type within putty. For instance, I can change them to telnet or serial, but they're still putty based.

Am I missing something?



Hi Adam,

you first need to go to the "Plugin" page in the properties and change the active plugin to "Rebex". After that you need to re-open the bulk-edit dialog. Let me know if this helps.
