    Using tmux at the moment, but I'm pretty ambivalent about whether I use screen or tmux. I'm using tmux because the keybindings on how to split a screen are fresh in my head, I don't remember them for screen. I have a menu set to SSH into particular servers, and those shortcuts set up a terminal with screen. Screen has ZMODEM support which I do use.

    However I've found that systemd now terminates all your processes when you log out, including detached screen and tmux sessions!

    how do you even use zmodem with screen?
    do you just run it on auto in the screen session?

    You enable zmodem with the "zmodem catch" config option. This will detect and zmodem escape sequences. When it detects one, screen will then prompt you to run the corresponding sz/rz command at your end.

    So how it works is this. You start screen, then ssh/telnet to the remote server. On the remote server you initiate either rz or sz depending on whether you want to send or receive, and screen will then bring up a prompt with sz or rz, allowing you to run then on the local end. When you accept that command, the transfer proceeds.

    Its convienient when you ssh to a remote server, and just want to send an adhoc file back or forth.

    I use Linux, so SCP is an option, but it means starting another shell to run the command. Zmodem means I can do it within the shell.

    For Windows users, you can use LePutty, which is Putty with zmodem support. Wouldn't have thought it would still be useful, but it is.

    I use MobaXTerm in windows which has a small built-in scp gui where you can click/drag files to transfer them. It's not free, but it's well worth it, especially when you have to deal with and organize over a thousand different servers.

    I'll have to take another look at MobaXTerm. We're using a combination of Putty, WinSCP and an autologin plugin for Keepass that's nice.

    Keys most places to autologin, and Keepass to automate SSH/RDP elsewhere.

    I wish there was an easy way to package Putty destinations and share them,
    we have 10 developers and it'd be nice to package all of the usual hosts
    when I image systems for them.

    Of course, you can write your own shell script I'm sure. Perhaps rsync may be of assistance?

    I use Windows on my primary computer, as I play video games, and a lot of the ham radio stuff I have also requires windows (getting any of that stuff to run reliably under WINE is a nightmare I don't want to deal with).

    The other 6 computers sitting around me are all running some flavor of Linux, and one runs BSD.

    It should be pretty easy to create a web page with links to all the servers people need to access. a browser can auto-launch PuTTY. They'd just need to make sure their key was loaded.

    I've been playing with Dashy on my home lab; I've got a destination web page at work on our outward-facing reverse proxy that could easily be a web page inside the firewall, accessible via VPN. That might be a nice project.
