Configuration and Settings

Configuration is predefined with some examples, and can be edited with configuration manager.

Custom URLs with custom "protocol handler"

If you want your PC to open custom links like “putty:” then you need to edit your computers settings and write your own script to be executed. Please be aware that you might open security holes if you don't know what you are doing! For Windows systems, the keywords you must search for are “protocol handler”. Some Applications can register them on their own, like WinSCP registers for “SSH:” or some Apps register “RDP:” as described here.
For Linux I cannot tell you for sure.
For IOS and Android it might be easy if you find an application that registers your protocol you would like to use - RDP is a good example.
