Feature REQ: Window Caption containing remote hostname 17 Years, 4 Months ago  
I know a similar thing has been mentioned somewhere...
When launching a telnet window by clicking on a telnet://some-host.company.com/ type URL, the window that opens in AT has the caption "Untitled.tnt (modified) - Absolute Telnet 2.13". Would it be possible to squeeze in the name of the remote host somewhere? The point is that we are using a web-page with about 30 network switches and other equipment drawn in a JPG with clickable links to a telnet-session. Opening about 10 or so makes it really hard to navigate through them with Alt-Tab since they all have the same caption. Furthermore, most of the equipment does not set the prompt in the terminal session, so the caption of the window does not contain any hints of the remote host.

Thanks!

Perhaps it would be possible to make a distinction between a session that was started through a URL vs. a normal startup. URL startup would show the name of the host instead of a filename, and would never prompt you to save a connection file when you exit..... Interesting.

Thoughts?

Brian,
I think that this could really be something! As you point out, a session launched through an URL may not be very likely to save (thus no prompt for saving, of course it will be possible to save the connection anyway, but no prompt). An URL-launched session will also use the default settings and should be considered "dumb" when compared to a saved connection-file. Also having the remote hostname instead of filename for such URL-launched sessions would be just GREAT!
I fully support this functionality :-)

Cheers,

I suggest you go to the beta group list and make this suggestion. Solicit comments from other users as well.
