I also experience this issue, since recently
Though it's hard to say what the actual conditions are and if it's an RDM or external (Windows) issue.
Haven't given it much thought yet, but seeing as someone is also noticing this, just wanted to mention I have also experienced this

Hasn't fixed it for me as well.
I will also investigate a bit more when I have the time.

I suggest you turn off the Clipboard sync in Chrome;

I have the exact same issue, can replicate.

Chrome 78 build adds this "Shared Clipboard" feature.


https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/7679408?hl=en

Shared clipboard between computers and Android devicesA limited number of users might see the option to share their clipboard content between their computers and Android devices. To share, they need to have Chrome installed, sign in on both devices with the same account, and enable Chrome Sync.

The text is end-to-end encrypted, and Google can’t see the contents.

This functionality will be released to all users in a future version of Chrome. In the full release, admins will be able to control it with an enterprise policy.

^Yeah sorry for the mix-up.
When testing I noticed turningthe magnet / key combo off did work, but forgot to verify with the other SSH session types.

I got some things mixed up when testing.

To clarify;

Session type "SSH Shell"
Ctrl-6 and Ctrl-Shift-6 never work, turning off the Magnet and the shortcut key in the Options does not have any effect.

Session type "SSH Rebex"
Magnet on / shortcut keys in Options enabled > break does not work, Ctrl-6 and Ctrl-Shift-6 have no effect.
Key combinations (or magnet) turned off DOES work > Ctrl-6 (x2) breaks and Ctrl-Shift6 also breaks.

So with Rebex as the SSH session type we can get this working , by turning of the key combinations in the Options.

I can confirm that for me this works flawlesly and consistently.

Without the keyboard magnet I can send both Ctrl-6 and Ctrl-Shift-6, they both break my running ping on a Cisco switch.

Also changing the keys in the options to "when not in Session" had the desired effect.

I will check again tonight to see if I can find some differences., maybe pertaining to a session type or remote device.
Maybe the difference now is Rebex vs SSH shell, I will double check just to be sure.

I could be totally off here, but does this have anything to do with scancodes?
https://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/kbd/scancodes-1.html


Brk == e1 1d 45 e1 9d c5
The prefix e1 used for Pause/Break indicated that this key sends the make/break sequence at make time,


I think RDM captures the modifiers (shift-ctrl)
I do not know what the actual escape sequence is, and how it is send over SSH


https://bharathisubramanian.wordpress.com/2010/01/05/telnet-and-ssh-escape-sequences/

I am sorry I have nothing more usefull to add, I am not a programmer and do not know the first thing about escaping en how terminals/ ssh send their data.

But this is indeed a very frustrating issue, not being able to cancel any running tasks. And I presume this could affect other types of connections as well, but I dont very often run into other vendors' routers / switches where I need to Break tasks

Yeah PuTTY handles the key combo differently, I believe it just sends the "Break" key (actual Break key on keyboard) values over the line.

Just tried in a up-to-date RDM w/ SSH Shell Rebex , connected to a Cisco Router.
Ctrl-6 doesn't do anything
Ctrl-Shift-6 changes the tabname , it appends [B6]

Tried SSH Shell session;
Same effect as w/ rebex
Ctrl-Shift-6 does not work
Special commands > send Break does not break

You can try it by connecting to a cisco device (router, switch) w/ ping 127.0.0.8 , that will fail (2 second timeout) but take a bit longer than pinging something which responds. Gives you more time to try out the escape sequences
Try pingin 127.0.0.8 repeat 10 for a longer period (20 seconds) to test
Try ping 127.0.0.8 repeat 100 for agony because there's no way to cancel / break the running task....

This behaviour can be changed on most cisco devices, but this would be far from practical / ideal to require this modification when using RDM


SW-CORE-AMS-01#terminal escape-character ?
BREAK Cause escape on BREAK
CHAR or <0-255> Escape character or its ASCII decimal equivalent
DEFAULT Use default escape character
NONE Disable escape entirely
soft Set the soft escape character for this line


Looks like CTRL-SHIFT-6 is handled by RDM, when I notice the Tab name being changed to SessionName [B6]

I think the answer is somewhere in here; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANSI_escape_code#Escape_sequences
But man, that brings back memories

I would add my suggestion / tip ;

Go to options, and search for "space" >
Change "Treat space as" in search filter to "AND"

Now , in the search filter you can just type "micr che"
to find everything that contains both, which includes "microsoft" and "checkpoint"

And remember to extend the search scope to include tags, description etc to your liking.

Simeon, if it helps this is my thread about this,

https://forum.devolutions.net/topic31417-openvpn-allow-multiple-active-profiles.aspx

I also use OpenVPN externally now, because currently RDM does not implement OpenVPN in any way that suits how I work with multiple sites at once.
And I do not like the way currently RDM has OpenVPN implemented.

Maybe my thread gives you some extra insight, but at the moment RDM does not offer the option of using multiple OpenVPN connections transparantly.

Otherwise; RDM is still King and by far, very very far the greatest Remote Control/management/Support tool there is.

I personally would advice against using WebDAV.
Other datasources are probably more stable and easier to set up.

If it's just for yourself, I would store the XML or preferably the Sqlite locally, which can be in a folder that get's synced outside of RDM like Dropbox, Onedrive of Google Drive.

Personally I have never gotten WebDAV to work without running into issues.

VERSION 2019.2.9.0 (October 10th 2019) Beta

•Added "send break" command for SSH shell entry


I tried this out immediately. Does not seem to work unfortunately.

Also; what would be the keyboard shortcut associated and how would we potentially change what the Break command is?

Great!

Just yesterday, I was logged into some Cisco routers using RDM and had to kill my sessions because I couldn't break the process.

Looking forward to this!

I just started a traceroute through an SSH session to a Cisco router.
Of course I forgot to temporarily change the Break command, so I now have no way of stopping this process on the router.

I know this is already on the "bug list" - just a reminder smile

I don't think this is really a bug, also not a feature request, but also not support...
So I let the dice decide which subforum should get this post.

With Nav pan auto-collapsed, when the Pane is expanded it will not collapse back if you click outside of the Pane.
Double clicking a session will collapse (this is an option)
But if you open the pane, and then maybe right click a credential, open the properties for a session etc, the pane does not collapse when you click outside of it.
The only way to close the Pane again is to click outside of the RDM window (ie Windows taskbar)

It would be so very pleasing if the Pane would collapse also if we click somewhere in the RDM window or even in the Session Window.

Or maybe it would help if the Pane would auto-collapse if the Mouse is not hovering above
And in addition the Pane could pop-up when hovering the mouse over the Tab
So also kind of a feature request...

Also the top bar does not collapse back up, when you pull it down, and then click somewhere in your session.
In this case it does collapse when we click on another RDM window element though.
But as you might understand, collapsing to the left, collapsing above; gives us a great big session window , so not a lot of RDM window real estate we can click on to collapapse.

Which type of datasource are you using?

I don't think there is an alternative.
You could put the credentials in a seperate vault ir datasource but then you would not be able to reference them.

Out of curiosity; how would your suggestion be all that different from putting credentials in 1 folder?

We have a folder in each structure called 'accounts' where we store credentials.
We also like to keep credentials seperated and this works just fine for us.

The feature seems to be currently missing... so I'd consider it a request to get this implemented properly wink

I'm sure someone someone from the engineering department will know how to handle this, and David will monitor this and make sure the SSH engine gets a proper implementation of sending special sequences, because this (ssh/telnet) is an important part of RDM that needs to work properly.

I found a way you can bypass it in the meantime, might be something you'd want to do by default;

In the configuration for the router or switch you can change the escape sequence;

conf t
line vty 0 15
escape-character 3


That makes it so Ctrl-C can be used. (apply same to console if required)


But this deviates from the norm, and requires changes to switches that not everybody might have access to, or would like to.


https://etherealmind.com/changing-break-sequence-cisco-ios-useful-different/


You might want to set this temporarily after logging in, using the macro typing option in RDM.
(which I use for example to send 'enable' on Cisco and 'terminal-length on HP switches)

To change the escape sequence for just the active session you would use;
terminal escape-character 3

Hi David,

It's not a CTRL-C.

See my unresolved post here;
https://forum.devolutions.net/messages.aspx?TopicID=31661

Break is a special command (escape key) that can be send.
Same goes for backspace for example, which with default settings works for Cisco but not for some older HP (3Com) switches, which require Ctrl-H instead of Ctrl-? (127).

See this: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/routers/10000-series-routers/12818-61.html

I haven't tried lately, the default for Cisco I believe is Ctrl-Shft-6


The context would be;

When you give a command, that spews out something and you want to cancel (break) the task.
Like for instance a Ping command or Traceroute

Looks like your new firewall is doing DPI on TLS/SSL traffic.

This means the firewall acts as a sort-of man in the middle (mitm) which replaces the certificate.

You need to import the Root CA from the Firewall , but I also suggest to talk to the guys who manage the firewall, because the "issued to" should not be replaced, only the Issuer would be replaced.

This is not an RDM issue, the same would apply to any HTTPS website or other TLS traffic.
