Setup for Multiuser

I really enjoy the software!  One thing I am not understanding is how to setup Terminals for a multiuser environment.  We remote into a server and several admins need to remote from there to other servers.  I have it setup for me and password protected, however the other admins can not open Terminals, they are prompted for the password I setup.  It appears that there is only a common configuration.  I need to keep the individual logins and passwords separate.  Any ideas?

Unfortunately right now this is not possible since Terminals is saving the remote machines into an XML file saved in the program directory instead of the account's %appdata% or %userprofile% directory! I have already suggested to change the location... now any users will share the same set of machines and credentials... and this is not good!

Since Terminals is quite small and self-contained , it doesn't need to be 'installed', hence it should be possible to copy the original files to a separate directory for each admin. Not ideal, but a workaround if you want everything kept separate.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I will try the separate directories for the each admin.

So, to be clear, when you set a master password this implies that that specific instance will be used by a single user, thus we store the data into the local directory for the app.  If a master password is NOT set, then we store the data in the %appdata% folder, and the connections are shared.

I think that you mean the vice-versa!

%APPDATA% (ie: C:\Users\AccountName\AppData\Roaming) points into your own profile folder so it cannot be shared!

For sharing you should use %ProgramData% (ie: C:\ProgramData) but it's not available on WinXP!

I suggest to not link the path to the master password: I do not have one but I should be able to still keep them on my own profile and not sharing them!

Thank you for providing alternative solutions.
I am currently working on issue (nr. 31735) related to the file location.
