summary: Hooks to run external commands (e.g. after forwarding set up)
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

We occasionally get asked for the ability to run external commands at various points in PuTTY's operation. One particularly common request is for some way to invoke a command after authentication has completed and port forwarding has been set up, to start an application that's dependent on the forwarding being in place.

Possibly an application for scripting, although many common cases wouldn't need that level of flexibility.

Audit trail for this wish.
