Version 2.0.1

Crash logs should be sent where they belong, to the developer, and not posted here.

double-clicked it to open it, and nothing happens. Tried it on 3 different computers.

Did you notice the little Terminal icon in your menubar in the upper right?


How could I have noticed it, if it wasn't there. Like I said...the app would not open.

For storing ssh passwords at client side, try sshKeyChain.

Okay, good idea.

However, there are no options for the connection. I would like to be able to set SSH 1 or SSH 2 for example. In Terminal when you choose "connect to server" there are a couple options. You definately need these options.

This seems like a usefull tool only I'd like to see a password field to be added... I have several SSH connections which different passwords, possibility open a connection without typing it's password would be very usefull :)

Use ssh-keygen to create a public ssh id and share it on your servers. Then you won't need your password stored anywhere.


Nothing against this app (I've never used it). Try [url=http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8032]JellyFiSSH[/url]


Yeah, it's a great idea, but useless without a way to store the passwords. I don't have the options of setting up a shared key on my servers.

The Panic app Coda does save user/pass info in the Terminal tab, so if I'm already in a web dev mode that's an easy solution, but when I just need to log in quickly, that's kinda overkill and this menubar thing would be perfect.

If stored passwords get added, I'll defiantly use sshOpener!
