The Connect tab on the New Connection dialog box allows you to specify generic connection options, such as information about the remote host, that you want to connect to. For example, you can provide the port number and domain name or IP address of the component. The port number and other connection information is retained for future connections.
If the Prompt for connection settings check box is selected on the Options dialog box, which is available from Tools > Options on the SMClient Main window, the New Connection dialog box appears; otherwise, the Client Connections Window appears.
Option Description
Host Specifies the domain name or the IP address to connect to the host. This is a required setting.
Protocol Indicates the protocol used to establish the connection as follows:
  • SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
  • SSH (Secure Shell)
  • Telnet
Port Indicates the port to connect to on the remote host. This is a required setting.

The default for Telnet is 23. The default for SSH and SFTP is 22. If this field is greater than 65,535, an error message appears.

Name Specifies the name (alias) of the component or the path to the component. The path follows the hierarchy that is displayed in the Tree View. If no name is specified, then the host and port number (host name (port number)) are used.

This setting is used as the title of the terminal frame or tab in the Client Connections Window. It is also used to refer to the connection in the Connection Manager.
