Hello!

When I launch Terminal.app, my terminal connects with this command:

ssh -t guest@txot -p 22 “cd /home/guest/ && exec \$SHELL”

Is it possible to change SSH options?

Thanks

Which options in particular you want to be able to customize?

You can now change the SSH command as of 4681206 using the hidden configuration option

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck terminal.command.ssh \"ssh\ -t\ {0}\ {1}@{2}\ -p\ {3}\ \\\"cd\ {4}\ \&\&\ exec\ \\\\\$SHELL\\\"\"

where

  • {0} is -i <path to the private key>
  • {1} is the username from the login credentials
  • {2} is the hostname
  • {3} is the port number of the remote host
  • {4} is the current working directory in the browser

Because of all the escaping of characters, it might be easier to edit the key using Property List Editor if you have the developer tools installed. You can then set the string for the key terminal.command.ssh to ssh -t {0} {1}@{2} -p {3} "cd {4} && exec \$SHELL". Test the string in Terminal.app first if it is valid.
