Using the XTAM SSH Proxy Interface for Record Selection

Instead of using a defining a specific record to connect within your SSH proxy command, you can display a list of records that are available for connection. This is helpful if you are unaware of the record ID or you want to use a more generic means of connection.

To display a list of available records in your SSH proxy client, simply define your XTAM login account when prompted or in your connection command and not the unique record identifier.
