REXEC Connection Settings

The screenshot below depicts the Remote Process Execution (REXEC) connection configuration dialog and settings.  

(For more information on other session property configuration tabs, please see Session Properties.)

The following REXEC configuration settings are available to properly setup your device connection and terminal session.

Auto ConnectIf this option is enabled, then the terminal session will attempt to establish a connection immediately when opened in Indigo.

The REXEC server/host should be provided in this configuration field.
This entry can be an IP address, computer name, or DNS hostname.


The REXEC server/host port can be used if a custom REXEC port must be provided.
(The default port for the REXEC protocol is port 512.)

Command To ExecuteThis command instruction will be automatically sent to the server/host when a connection is established. 

REXEC Connection Authentication Options

When using a REXEC connection, Indigo can provide an option for automated password authentication.  
(The REXEC protocol intrinsically supports authentication as part of the protocol.)  


Authentication Method

This option allows you to set the session authentication method. For REXEC connections, Indigo supports the following options:

Authentication MethodDescription
NoneNo authentication method is applied.
Password (connection)

Use this option to provide basic username and password credentials to the REXEC server/host.
(This is a protocol based implementation, where the user credentials are negotiated as part of the REXEC protocol at the time of connection.)  

UsernameThis is the user name that Indigo will provide when authenticating with the REXEC server/host.
PasswordThis is the password that Indigo will provide when authenticating with the REXEC server/host.
