After switching from telnet to SSH, I have found that logging out will kill my OpenVMS process and the tcp port device on the OpenVMS machine but, it will not cause the Ericom Powertern session to end. In SSH, I am forced to take an extra step when I log out to disconnect the session in the menu. I log out and then if I want the Ericom Powertern to end I must select "Communication" and "Disconnect" to make the emulator disappear.
Has anybody else experienced this behaviour with Powerterm? Or might someone know how to make the Powerterm terminal emulator session disappear when the SSH session is done?

Tried using the PuTTY terminal emulator?
Tried a newer version of what looks to be 2001-vintage Ericom PowerTerm software? (They have trial downloads.)
Tried an ssh connection into a server other than OpenVMS, try replicating this behavior with another server box?

And, as Hoff recommended, check with the vendor or in the documentation to see if this behavior is expected.

Save permanent if you have admin rights on the Windows PC, by clicking File, Save Terminal Setup. Works for version 7.1 and up I believe, and should work for SSH.

I'm with Ericom. Thanks for using our product.
Please note that the version of PowerTerm which was bundled with PATHWORKS is an old version. I suggest that you try PowerTerm 9.2 from Ericom's download site -
and select PowerTerm Lite from the left hand dropdown box.
