My customer uses Netsight Java Clients at Ubuntu linux. Currently he cannot use the basic functionality of netsight which is accessing to a switch via ssh if he right click on a switch in netsight console.

If he right click in a switch and choose "ssh" it happens nothing!
It seems to me that the ssh link is hard coded to a (windows) putty client which is not available on ubuntu client.

Is that correct and can be solved ?!
Or is there a configuration option possible.

Hello Matthias,

you might be able to leverage the "Third Party Menu" to specify an SSH application. See How can you create a 3rd party menu option for a device in Console? and How to change the telnet/ssh port that NetSight Console uses.

On Ubuntu you would probably need to start a terminal that executes an SSH client, e.g. "xterm -e ssh user@host" or "gnome-terminal -x ssh user@host".
