AllocatePty property

Determines if terminal is allocated on the server.


A Boolean value


  • Basic
object.AllocatePty [= value]  
The AllocatePty(object,value) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodTunnel.
valueA Boolean value.


Setting the AllocatePty property to True will cause wodSSHTunnel to request and allocate terminal on remote side. However, if terminal allocation fails, it will report no error and will silently continue (this will typically happen on windows servers).

Terminal allocation has no specific use in wodSSHTunnel. However, when this property is set, user that is connected on the server will appear on 'who' or 'finger' commands on UNIX terminals (this applies to SSH connection, not to forwarded channels!)
