is there a way to set the terminal window colors for SSH/Telnet sessions? This seems to be a requirement by one of my customers, but I want to avoid using NC/SAM.

Is it possible to install your own .jar file for the SSH/Telnet applet? I found a nice client called Mindterm that give you the "normal" options you'd expect from a SSH/Telnet client. The built-in one is lousy.

Can't add a Telnet/SSH Java applet as part of the "telnet/ssh" section.
Just go under Resource Profiles / Web - New Profile - Type = hosted Java applet. Upload the applet - then under bookmark you will need to generate some html code which the Admin GUI will do (partially). Edit it for applet name.

I'm setting up my SA4500 for the first time and the telnet/ssh java app included is horrible. It keeps crashing whenever I try to use vim in the console. Have you gotten Mindterm to work? I'd love to know how well that went.

Thanks for the reply. I've gone through the documentation on uploading a java app and it seems pretty straight forward. Anything hinky or anything that I need to keep in mind when uploading this app or using it?

re: Mindterm. I tried to integrate it based on their documentation but I could only ever get a blank screen... Can you post your html?
On the same subject, do you think that Juniper should license this app and replace their current one?

Hey Theodore - I will be glad to post the code - slammed today so will probably end up putting it up tomorrow.
Personally - yes, I think that Juniper should "upgrade" their console app. I have a library of Java apps so that I can tell my customers what their options/choices are from freeware to purchased and I find that that the Juniper console app is just weak. Would be nice to see them either look at third party or do some work on it.

Mindterm HTML - see attached file

Couple more questions for you..
1 - I've added Mindterm.jar as a web applet, but I'm wondering if there is any way to streamline adding dozens of profiles with unique html for each site. I would like to believe that there is a better and faster way of doing this. (Hopefully anyway)
2 - The other thing is that according to Mindterm, I can do telnet sessions as well, but in looking at the docs, I'm not seeing it.
Thanks for the help!

You can get the telnet option from this snapshot build:
Do you have any ideas on how to save time when creating hundreds of connections? I thought there might be a way to use user variables to call the host name, port, etc.. Otherwise, you're stuck creating custom html for each connection

I wish there was an easy way to accomplish this. With TS you can give users the right to create their own bookmarks and with Java applets you can pass system variables like <<username>> and <<password>> but there is no code in SA box to allow for the setting of a local variable and have it passed into the Java html code.
I think that it would be a great feature. Have the variable set, perhaps like the TS bookmark and have it passed into the applet's html code. But it does not exist and I have not figured out any work-around to date.
