PAC, Perl Auto Connector is a simple GUI to manage/launch SSH/Telnet connections to remote machines.
It is a Perl/GTK replacement for SecureCRT/Putty/etc (linux ssh/telnet/… gui)… It provides a GUI to configure connections: users, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, macros, etc.


Unique linux app to implement SecureCRT’s functionality (more or less!)
Remote and local macros
Remotely send commands with EXPECT regexp
Cluster connections!! Connections on same cluster share keystrokes!!
Proxy support
Serial/tty connection via cu/tip/remote-tty connections!!
Pre/post connections local executions
TABS OR WINDOWS for connections!!
Wake On LAN capabilities
Possibility to split terminals in the same TAB!
Quick acces to configured connections via tray menu icon
Best linux GUI for ssh, telnet, sftp, rdesktop, vnc, cu, remote-tty, ftp, etc
DEB, RPM & .TAR.GZ packages available!!
More to come (ASA I find time!)
