Sub Connections

Description

 

Contains the sub connections linked to this session. It's possible to use variables that refer to this session's field, such as the host name, from within sub connections. This is useful for connecting to the same host with different protocols. Please see Sub Connections Overview for more details.

 

Sub connections are used to share properties between group of sessions (e.g. the host name). They're also used to regroup many connection types for a computer (e.g. the RDP/FTP/HTTP connection).

 

Settings

 

Sub connections are configured in the parent connection in the Sub Connections section. Use the predefined variables in the child session to get access to the parent settings. The most common usage is to reuse the host name and credentials from the parent within the sub connection.
