We use this at work extensively, sometimes as an alternative to Putty. Any possibility of adding support for this application?

Yes. Below is from the help file concerning command line parameters.


[- | /]ParameterName [=] ParamaterValue.
[- | /]PHost = Host name
[- | /]PUser = User name
[- | /]PPassword = User Password
[- | /]PSession = Session name to load
[- | /]PFile = File name from where to get parameters

Alternatively these can be entered into a file in the following manner:
ParameterName [= | :] ParamaterValue.
Host[= | :] Host name
User [= | :] User name
Password [= | :] User Password
Session [= | :] Session name to load
File [= | :] File name from where to get parameters
Lib [= | :] Library name
Member [= | :] Member name
Action [= | :] Download/Upload
ActionPrm [= | :]
Download (0=Append, 1-Create, 3=ask)
Upload (1=create new member, 2=replace member 3=append to member)
PCFile [= | :] PC file path and name on DSN=[DSN name]
Viewer [= | :] external viewer name
VIEWOPTION [= | :] View options
(0=not open, 1=default program, 2=external program)
Beep [= | :] Beep after transfer (1=beep)
Jump [= | :] Move to foreground (1=move)
CCSID [= | :] AS/400 code page
CODEPAGE [= | :] PC code page
SAVECODEPAGE [= | :] file code page


All the parameters are optional and their order is not of any consequence.

Example:
"D:\Ericom\dft.exe" -Session=LoadWeeklyTransctions

Also there are .PTS files (PowerTerm Session files) that save configurations that can be called from the command line as well. You can basically call subsets of sessions that way. Gives you even more flexibility. (example, one PTS has all Unix servers, another has specific production mainframes). When you call a PTS from the command line, it bypasses the session callup screen at the beginning of PowerTerm.

Hi,
David asked me to explore Powerterm Pro and I have some questions.
Wich version should I install to make the Add-on ?
In your example it's "dft.exe" that is called. Is the only exe to consider for an Add-on ?
Is it possible to have some command line exemples of what you should commonly use ?
Thanks
