9.9 Creating and Saving a Terminal Emulator Session File

Prior to enabling any terminal emulator for single sign-on, you must identify or create a session file that includes all the required settings for the server connection and any other parameters required for deployment to users. Terminal Launcher is configured to run this session file when launching the emulator. Any modifications to the session must be saved to this file. The session file can be saved locally or on the server. Typically, the session file already exists and you just need to configure Terminal Launcher to point to the relevant file.

If you need to create a session file:

  1. Start the terminal emulator application.

  2. Connect to the required host.

  3. Change the terminal emulator settings as required.

  4. Save the session. The default directory is usually the application’s installation directory.

  5. On the Connection menu, click Disconnect.The session file remains loaded, but you have disconnected from the host.

  6. On the File menu, click Save [session name] to save changes to the session file.

  7. Exit the terminal emulator application.
