Do you use custom ports for accessing your systems through SSH or telnet? If you do, you’ll find that the launcher is configured for standard ports. Configuring these ports requires the creation of a custom launcher and a few other steps. This information is outlined in the Secret Server KnowledgeBase under the title: How can I run the PuTTY launcher on a different port?
This can be a useful tool for Secret Server users, especially in those situations that require a non-standard port. While the jury is out on whether changing standard ports offers any real security, some situations may require them. In Secret Server, creating a custom launcher for using custom ports will make life easier for Secret Server users. The custom launcher will launch PuTTY, configure the client for SSH over the specified port, pass the credentials and grant access in one simple click!
