A session contains properties of a connection to a remote
computer. By creating a session, you can specify different options
for each remote computer and connect to the remote computer easily
with one click. The Sessions
dialog box lists all the sessions you created and allows you to
create and edit sessions.
You can also connect to a remote computer without creating a
session. For this purpose Xshell provides a default session
that is ready to use after installation.
From local shell, click the File menu, and then
In the main window's toolbar, click on an arrow next to the
Properties button, and then select Default Session
from the list.
Note: The default session is used when you run an
SSH, TELNET, RLOGIN, SFTP from local
prompt or Address bar.
To use connection commands from the local prompt, see Xshell local commands. To use Address bar, see
Address bar section.
