The SSH (Secure Shell) Tools no longer work from the OneClick Console after migrated the Spectrum to a new latest version from 10.2 to 21.2.4 on windows machine.

We get no error message, the SSH window is immediately closed without any error messages.



Default Option for Telnet / SSH is set to connect through OneClick server and SpectroSERVER.


Release : 21.2.x, 10.4.x

Component : OneClick


Under View, Preferences, Topology Tab, Telnet / SSH Connection Type changed from the default option of Connect to the device through OneClick web server and SpectroSERVER to
