Set the Remember password checkbox if you do not wish to enter the password each time you connect.

Click the New button to add a remote server to the list. To modify the connection parameters of an existing server, click Modify. Server definitons can be deleted using the Delete button or the Delete key.

Connection parameters

Remote connections require the server name or IP, the connection port (TCP/6242 by default, example: servername:6242) and the password of the remote server to be entered. In addition, the Remote Access option on the remote server must be enabled. For more information about enabling this, please consult the Remote Access topic.

Save to desktop...

By clicking the Save to desktop... link you can create a shortcut on the desktop, which will launch the tool (from which the dialog was invoked) and automatically connect to the remote server(s) using the connection parameters you specified in the dialog.
