I know this is supposed to be really simple but for the life of me I can't figure out how to store all of the URL's that I typically log into on the iTerm 2 Profiles page. I come from a PuTTY background where once you open the program, the very first screen allows you to just type in the Host Name/IP Address and a Name for the session and you click Save and that's it. And I could also set the Private key for authentication under SSH->Auth.

Yet these simple features are either non-existant or extremely hidden because I can't seem to find them anywhere in the Preferences.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

On unix-y systems like OS X, it's more common to store ssh login profiles in ~/.ssh/config. Then you can just type ssh host1 in a shell or, if necessary, add that as the command associated with an iTerm 2 profile. – Ned Deily Oct 1 '12 at 22:53
So does that mean it's not possible at all using the GUI? – paul smith Oct 2 '12 at 15:34
