Re: mRemoteNG 1.71 Release Candidate 3 Now Available

Hello,

I updated to the latest version and since then I have a problem connecting.
The way it works, I use plink.exe as an external tool to create an ssh tunnel.
in the external tool the argument for cmd is the following:
Code: Select all
/c start "%Name%" /min C:\Users\username\Documents\Apps\Plink\plink.exe -v -x -a -T -C -noagent -ssh -L localhost:%Port%:%UserField%:3389 user@ipaddress -pw pwhere


I did some troubleshooting and cmd has a problem with "%Name%" argument. without that it works. This worked with 1.69.
Is this something wokred on? Should I send a bugreport?

Thanks for the product anyway. Awesome!

I'm not sure how to fix this without breaking other things. mRemoteNG now escapes quotation marks in command line parameters so that things like having quotation marks in passwords will work. I could make this an option, but what if you need part of the parameters escaped, but not other parts?

Can you add an option to pass the parameters pre-formatted. like
Code: Select all
/c start \"%Name%\" /min C:\Users\username\Documents\Apps\Plink\plink.exe -v -x -a -T -C -noagent -ssh -L localhost:%Port%:%UserField%:3389 user@ipaddress -pw pwhere

So this \"%Name%\" red would escape your escape :D I hope it makes sense what I am saying. I don't know if it can be done...

The quotation mark escaping issue is fixed in 1.72. I will be improving the handling of escaping in 1.73.
