Remotty: Remote XTerm Connection Script
Remotty is a little shell script I threw together to make it easy to manage
remote connections at work. Remotty has a configuration file that allows you
to specify remote hosts, a connection method (SSH, rsh or telnet), window
title, and a color theme for the resulting XTerm (foreground, background
and cursor colors). I find that it is much easier to distinguish which
XTerm window is connected to which remote host when each host has its own
unique color theme. The remotty configuration file, .hostcolorsrc,
is a convenient single location to store this sort of information.
You can download the remotty shell script and a sample
configuration file here as a single tarchive,
or you can look at the shell script, the
README file or
configuration file directly.
