Opening the GUI


On Windows, the Tectia Connections Configuration GUI can be accessed in several ways:

  • Right-click on the Tectia tray icon in the Windows taskbar notification area to access the shortcut menu, and select Configuration.

  • When you have the Tectia ConnectSecure GUI active, click the Tectia Connections Configuration GUI icon in the toolbar or select Edit → Tectia Connections in the menu bar.

On Windows, Tectia ConnectSecure includes a separate GUI for configuring the user interface settings for the Tectia SSH Terminal GUI. Open the User Interface Settings tool by clicking the icon in the toolbar of the Tectia SSH Terminal GUI. For instructions on the GUI configurations, see Appendix B.


If the Connection Broker configuration is generated and controlled by Tectia Manager, the GUI hides those views that contain Manager-configured settings. This protects the configuration from unauthorized local modifications.


On Linux, the Tectia Connections Configuration GUI can be started by running:

$ /opt/tectia/bin/ssh-tectia-configuration

The following options are available:

-f, --config=FILE
Use configuration file FILE.
-a, --broker-address=ADDR
Connect to separate Tectia Broker process using given address.
-d, --debug=STR
Sets debug string to STR.
Convert old configuration file.
Add a new profile.
Profile host name when adding a new profile.
Profile port when adding a new profile.
Profile user when adding a new profile.
Edit existing profile NAME.
User interface mode. Possible values are standard and file-transfer.
-V, --version
Print version.
-h, --help
Print usage.
