    Also is there any way to pass username and password in the url (ssh://ipaddress).

    • Ravi Saive says:


      No there isn’t any option to specify username and password with FireSSH URL itself, and I don’t think this option ever will be included, due to security…

    Thank you, this is very useful. I am trying the same for chrome by entering the ssh://ipaddress in address bar but it is going to google search as default or other If i choose other option in the dropdown it is opening in mac terminal. Though i have chrome firessh extension it is still going to mac terminal. Am I missing something here?

    • Kiran says:

      Any idea on this why chrome is not taking me to firessh extension?

      • Ravi Saive says:


        I think FireSSH plugin is for only Firefox, not for chrome, you should search for similar FireSSH extension for chrome to work it properly..
