Termius cross platform sync



  • Is there a way to get around the pricing on Termius ? It seems excessive (for personal use anyway) to pay $100.00 a year for syncing

    Termius Pricing

    Or is there another option - though I rather like Termius..



  • Get around - doesn't mean anything illegal -



  • Where is the location of the data stored at on Windows, Linux, and Mac?
    Because my first thought would use something like Syncthing for those platforms.

    Lots of options. What job is it doing that other tools aren't filling the need for?

    There is a free version, what does it lack for you?

  • Just about everyone has use PuTTY at some point. Sadly though, it's not 'cross platform'... From what I have saerched and found - the session history (saved session) is saved in Windows Registry.. Not exactly easy to get to or back up.. is it possible - of course. just not easy - and if you forget,.. frustrating.

    Have you looked at mRemoteNG? The settings files are saved to your local user profile so you can sync and back that up.

    It does use Putty in the backend so any Putty specific settings you use will get lost.

    I had not - Will take a look at it.



  • Remina is great on Linux platforms, but the question for me is why is this a need?

    This seems like everyone could and should manage this independently. All you need is DNS name or IP to initiate a remote connection. In my opinion, it's better for IT team to know exactly where they are trying to go instead of clicking the wrong button or sending the wrong command

    Yeah I agree. I'm assuming it's for syncing credentials across devices. Which means you'd have to trust their cloud service with your system credentials.

    While yes, it would be nice to sync the entire session - connection and UserID / password. I'm more concerned with the connection itself. Yes, I can keep track of the addresses - but it gets to be a pain.. UserId / Passwords are different. I could care less - I mainly want the address; IP address or dns name..

    I mean, honestly what's the difference between a word document/text file and the syncing at that point?

    Right. An besides, even Windows has native SSH now. So why use anything else anyway?



  • @gjacobse said in Termius cross platform sync:

    Sure, but there is no need. I know people who use it all the time because they like it, but no one needs it because there isn't another option.



  • @gjacobse said in Termius cross platform sync:

    So, why would anyone want "cross platform" in that way? That's not a goal. It doesn't have a purpose or a benefit. nothing wrong with being cross platform, but it's not a "goal" either. There's no reason to want that.

    Sounds like what you really want is a jump box. The terminal application is probably a bad place to be attempting to centralize connections.

    Right, I've not used PuTTY in quite some time. Not that it isn't good, I just don't see the point of installing third party software that doesn't do anything any better than the built in tool that is always there and ready to go. And quite frankly, I find PowerShell's terminal to work far better for me.

    I can't stand PuTTY. I'm not sure why, I've just always hated it.

    I hate that it lacks a local shell and you have to launch the damn thing for every connection!

    so much this.

    Maybe that's what it is. Tunnelling is a pain, I just find it awkward.

    That, too. Other than doing a good job rendering fonts and being available back in an era when nothing else was, PuTTY really doesn't offer anything positive.
