Working with Sessions
All the sessions you have access to are available in the Available Sessions list. Sessions are initially created and configured by your system administrator and accessed through a distributed URL (for example,
To open a session
Select the session and click to open.
Interact with your host application using the open session.
You can create multiple instances of a configured session.
You can have multiple sessions open at a time and easily switch between them using the tabs arranged across the top of the screen. The current session is always the left-most tab and is indicated by a white background and bold text. Each session remains active for 30 minutes.
Use the toolbar to access the various options available to you as you interact with the session. You can disconnect from a session, close the session, turn on Quick Keys, and access other settings. Some options may be only available once your administrator has granted permission.
Using Quick Keys
The Quick Key terminal keyboard provides a graphical representation of the keys on a host keyboard and gives you quick access to terminal keys.
Click a terminal key on the Quick Key keyboard to send the key to the host. Tool tips, which are available by hovering over a key, provide a description of the mapping.
Quick keys are available for each supported host type and are accessed by clicking the tool bar icon .
Editing the Screen
Each browser handles copy, paste and cut functions differently and in some cases will not support the use of the toolbar buttons or the right-click context menu. It is highly recommended that you use keyboard commands for those functions. Although keyboard commands vary depending on your operating system, in Windows they are: CTRL+C to copy, CTRL+V to paste, and CTRL+X to cut.
It is far more common to encounter problems with the paste function rather than either cut or copy. If the Paste toolbar button is not visible, it is likely that browser security is preventing read access to the system clipboard. Different browsers behave differently when it comes to providing access to the clipboard. However, pasting is almost always available using the keyboard commands, (Control + V on Windows and Command + V on Macs). This assumes you have not remapped those keys. You can also use the browser’s built-in paste menu item or button.
To copy from the terminal
Highlight the area on the terminal screen that you want to copy.
Click Copy from the toolbar or select Copy from the right-click context menu available within the terminal screen. You can alternatively use the keyboard command, CTRL+C.
To paste into the terminal screen
Position the cursor where you want to paste content.
If the browser supports the paste function, click Paste from the toolbar or select Paste from the right-click context menu available within the terminal screen. If your browser does not support this functionality, these options will not be available and you should use the keyboard command, CTRL+V.
To cut areas from the terminal screen
This function is available for all supported terminal types except for VT hosts.
Highlight the area on the terminal screen that you want to cut.
Click Cut from the toolbar or select Cut from the right-click context menu available within the terminal screen. You can alternatively use the keyboard command, CTRL+X.
In the upper right corner of the screen, open the drop-down list associated with your user name and select Logout to stop working with the host application.
