Before establishing a connection to a remote host computer, you should first check your connection settings. The connection settings can be changed by using the Profiles option on the Profiles toolbar (see Section Defining Profiles), or alternatively by using the Settings option (see Section Settings) on the toolbar and the Edit menu.
The Profiles dialog can be used to configure the profile settings that are associated with a single remote host computer. With the Settings dialog you can control also the global settings that affect all connections.
To open the Settings dialog, click the Settings button on the toolbar, or select the Edit -> Settings option.
The different settings categories are visible on the left-hand side of the Settings dialog as a tree structure.
Click on a branch to display the settings associated with it. You can change the settings by changing the selections displayed on the right-hand side of the Settings window. Note that some of the settings do not take effect until you save the settings and then open a new terminal or file transfer window, or start a new connection.
