You can connect to a remote computer quickly by entering a command at the local prompt or at the Address bar. You can get the local prompt by closing the Sessions dialog box at startup.

To connect to a remote computer at the local prompt:

Enter one of the following commands at the local prompt:

  • Xshell> telnet hostname
  • Xshell> ssh hostname:22
  • Xshell> rlogin hostname
  • Xshell> open session_name

Note: If the remote computer doesn't use the default port, you need to provide a port number at the end of the command.

To connect to a remote computer at the Address bar:

  1. Enter one of the following commands into the Address bar:
    • hostname_or_ip
    • telnet://hostname
    • ssh://hostname
    • rlogin://hostname
  2. Press the Enter key or click Go.
