claude0001 1,055 Posted February 18, 2021 Share Posted February 18, 2021 (edited) As probably many do, I regularly use my Pro1 for logging into remote Un*x machines via SSH. I use ConnectBot for that purpose and am in principle quite happy with it. Sometimes, however, I would like to open several SSH sessions to the same remote host in parallel. Of course I know that I can create detached sessions on the remote host with the 'screen' command. However, that is not what I want. Ideally, I would like the app to spawn several terminal instances side-by-side, so I can switch between them from the home screen. Essentially, I want the equivalent of multiple SSH sessions running in distinct xterms. Alternatively, a concept of "tabs" (or alike) within the app would be acceptable too. I should say that for such a security-critical task as SSH-logins, I accept only FLOSS software. I find myself unable to achieve that with ConnectBot (or its derivatives) and also have not found any alternative app which explicitly features this possibility. I have read suggestions to simply set up two (or more) distinct session-profiles to the same host in ConnectBot. However, that does not seem to work: as soon as I open the second ConnectBot session, the first one somehow disappears in the background, and can be accessed only after I close the later one ...
