Controlling SSH sessions with PAC

Access Point

Article from Issue 142/2012
Author(s):

PAC, with its convenient graphical connection manager, is a Linux application that manages SSH and other connections. The tool supports macros and lets users send commands to an entire cluster of servers simultaneously.

If you need to manage a bundle of SSH connections, you need to keep your cool during configuration. What is easy with just one or two systems can be frustrating in even a medium-sized network. PAC gives users a practical tool that makes everyday life easier. The full name of the application, which positions itself as an alternative to heavyweights such as PuTTY or Secure-CRT, is “Perl Auto-Connector.”
