Gray window on PuTTY when connected via local proxy command #94
Normal PuTTY connections work just fine. But when I run PuTTY via local proxy command:
Connection starts normally. But if I switch to other tab (eg Far Manager) and back to PuTTY tab, now it's totally gray (sometimes I can see a couple of lines in the bottom). Below this gray rectangle PuTTY is still working: I can type exit+Enter and tab closes. I can even run
I'm not sure where is the bug - in ConEmu, in PuTTY or in Windows itself.
When running PuTTY standalone it works fine over local proxy. But there is no tab to switch away and back! ;-)
I tested different SSH servers - gray rectangle appears everywhere.
I used simple port forwarder instead of
The same result.
To tell the truth, I cannot run KiTTY thru plink (KiTTY Fatal Error: Server unexpectedly closed network connection), but using hand made
Yes, I also believe that root of problem is inside PuTTY or most probably in Microsoft's IPC implementation. ConEmu gives us the way to see that error.
But how ConEmu makes PuTTY/Windows know that its tab become inactive/active again? In that moment something bad happens.
What shall I do to reproduce the problem on my local PC?
After gray rectangle appears, press CtrlWinAltSpace. PuTTY window must appears. How it will be?
Also, I'm interested in LogFiles
This console is fully functional. No gray rectangles.
It seems CtrlWinAltSpace is quick-n-dirty workaround for this bug :-)
Logs (/log4) are in https://yadi.sk/d/2SiQ-aC8fqsKP
And I also started KiTTY via plink (had to simply copy plink.exe next to kitty.exe). The same gray rectangle, no difference.
