Xshell provides several connection methods, including local commands, Address bar, and shortcuts. You can connect to a remote computer with or without a session. If you have already created a session for a remote computer, you can just open the session to connect to the remote computer. Also, you can connect to the remote computer quickly with the default session provided by Xshell.

Xshell provides telnet, ssh, sftp, ftp, rlogin and serial connection protocols and the remote computer should support one of those protocols for a successful connection.

For more information on sessions, see Managing Sessions. For more information on local prompt, see Xshell local commands. For more information on Address bar, see Address bar.
