Near perfect app with some quirks

This app works as advertised. It has some quirks I don't like but seems to be the best is show for now. I'm able to sync certificates for serious authentication.

My only gripe is the inability to copy and paste commands from other apps.

back-quote key

this app is perfect to connect to a unix system, but is missing a back-quote key. There does appear to be an easy work-around. It would be easy to add a back-quote key among the "customizable keys" or the fcn keys, so I am surprised they have not done it yet.


Ran remote diagnostics for years on a large MMO using tools like this- this one is the only one I stuck with for more than two weeks.
