I was using MTPuTTY which has a separate tab for scripts, I heard about Solar-PuTTY and as we use Solarwinds in my job and the reviews were good I thought I'd test it out. So far so good and I really like it, but I came across a problem...
When I created a new session that needed a script, I created the script as a .txt file and mapped to it using the browse button, it runs the script but then immediately SHUTS DOWN the connection.
How can I stop it shutting down the session?
The point of the script is to type commands that change directories etc, so allow me to get to where I can do certain tasks, but if Solar-PuTTY keeps shutting down the session it's unusable and I will have to stick with MTPuTTY, which is a shame as I really liked it so far.
I called the Solarwinds support line but I was told they don't support free tools, so I hope to get the answer here.
Can anyone please help?
Thanks and kind regards,
the disconnection is depending on the device you are connecting to. For instance, if you connect to a Cisco device, there is no disconnection. For a Linux machine you can use for example 'read' command to stay in the session after the script has been executed:
