Connection Menu

Post by StephenH » Wed May 11, 2016 8:50 pm

Hello-

First off I am very impressed with your software, thank you.

I would like to know if it's possible at startup to present the user with a menu that includes a list of server connections to select from, similar to what is presented when you initially select "Connect for configurating" in the terminal management screen except with perhaps friendly server names, rather than automatically connecting to all. And when they disconnect be returned to this menu rather than automatically re-connecting or presented with the shutdown menu if turnoffmenu is used.

Our users have a series of servers they can connect to depending on tasks and this would make it easier for the users moving from the old HP thin clients using Connection Manager where they are presented with a list of available servers to select from.

Thanks in advance

Code: Select all

turnoffmenu=on
connection
displayName=It's a first connection.
server=10.0.0.20
connection
displayName=It's a second connection.
server=10.0.0.21
connection
displayName=Enter server address
server=--new--
We'll write manual about config structure sooooon :oops:

Thanks for posting this.

If you decide to put Chrome on RPi build, having Chrome on the same menu would be very nice, for example for users to run training videos locally. Something like application=Chrome or whatever.
