The Tools pane manages the utilities and programs that can be run when right-clicking a device. Tools can be useful for executing custom programs and passing them variables, which can be practically anything the Dude knows about the device.

There are predefined tools, that can't be changed, and you can also add new tools.

It is possible to edit some of the predefined tools to see how the tools are made, so you can easily add your own. For example the FTP tool:

Adding tools

When adding a new tool, you will be prompted for the following settings:

  • Type - custom tools can only be Execute, ie. run external program with given options
  • Name - whatever you wish to call your new tool
  • Command - the program that will be called and it's parameters. Can insert OID variables
  • Device - Which types of devices will have this tool available


The following Command shuts down Windows devices that support Remote Shutdown:

c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 30 /m \\[Device.FirstAddress]

This calls an ssh connection depending on which operating system you are currently running:

cmd /C  (IF NOT EXIST \\dude\tools (start z:\usr\bin\nautilus sftp://[Device.FirstAddress] )) 
&& IF EXIST \\dude\tools start  \\dude\tools\WinSCPPortable\WinSCPPortable.exe
