Allow for removal of 'Telnet' option
I love Termius, but one thing that always irks me is the "SSH(or Mosh)/Telnet/Cancel" dialog that pops up when starting a connection. I will never use Telnet, but only either SSH or Mosh--it'd be great if the SSH or Telnet dialog only popped up if you have Telnet selected as an option in a sever's configuration screen, eliminating a tap when it's not applicable.
Just open the group settings and switch off the Telnet toggle there and it will do the trick :)

I had this same problem, it ended up being an accidental setting on the group.

Having seen Thomas’s comment, I wondered if this was a bug that has now been fixed. I have 6 saved connections, and all of them have SSH enabled and Telnet disabled in the connection config.
All of them currently ask me to choose between Telnet and SSH when I click to connect.
However, I set up a brand new connection as a test, and this one did not ask me to choose.
Further, on the iPhone app I have 5 more connections (I haven’t paid for Premium to have them sync yet), and none of these produce that annoying pop-up.
Having done a bit more testing... it seems that as soon as I add a Host to a Group, I start getting that pop-up. While it’s not in the group it behaves as expected.
Finally figured it out... Groups themselves can have connection details, including host name and port, and if SSH/Telnet is enabled - presumably this becomes the default setting for all hosts in that group.
Very simply... removed Telnet from the Group config, and it’s all working nicely!
There is no popup if you configure your connection properly - just edit the host and select SSH or Mosh. Mine only asks for the password on connect.
Agreed. You already have a flat in the settings to disable Telnet. Can you respect that and not present the intermediate menu?
