Shells and commands in the Remote Systems view

You can use the Remote Shell view to run and interact with commands and command shells on universal systems. A universal system includes Windows, Linux®, and UNIX system types.

Specifically, use the view to:

  • Run commands in a command shell
  • Display and interpret the output of a program
  • Enter input to a program
  • Display and manage different commands and shells from the same view. Multiple commands can be run in a single shell (one command at a time per shell), multiple shells may be run on a single system, and multiple systems may be running shells.

Whenever a command shell is launched or a command is run from within Remote System Explorer, the Remote Shell view is used to display the output and provide a way to work with that output.
