XMC 8.1.2.59 ist it possible to integrate a different terminal program e.g. putty


Hi all,
is it possible to use a different terminal program e.g. putty out of the XMC web gui? The integrated WebShell is very poor. You can not paste content to the WebShell.

Hello Thomas,

due to the security mechanisms of a modern browser, you can not start arbitrary applications from the browser. The start of active content is a typical attack.

Therefore you can't start another application (putty etc.) like in the java NetSight Console.

Hi Stephan!
Thanks for you reply. Hopefully there will be some future improvements in the web shell like a copy/paste function.

I can copy/paste via CTRL+INS and SHIFT+INS key combinations with success.
