Allow use of SecureCRT as handler for telnet, ssh

  • Create an Issue

For SecureCRT maniacs, the use of securecrt instead of putty or internal SSH would be desirable.

We have an add-on for SecureCRT that you can install. Tools->Add-on Manager

But only manage SecureCRT Sessions....

I don't understand. What would you want us to add exactly?

To define a ssh connection as usual (host, port, security, credentials, etc) and open it using SecureCrt... In other words, adds securecrt to the "Putty, Telnet, SSH, SSH Shell" selection on "Telnet, SSH, RAW, rLogin" session type

Clock5 yrs

Do you know if SecureCRT can handle this trough their command line?

securecrt /telnet <host name>
securecrt /ssh <hostname>
securecrt /ssh2 hostname

it supports a lot of options from command line.

I've a couple of SecureCRT fans refusing to use RDM if no support for SecureCRT as SSH Sesion handler...

Clock5 yrs

this would be great !!!

Does this work now? I'm having the same issue with my team also. We have a few guys who will not use RDM unless it works with SecureCRT.

Launches SecureCRT with the SSH or Telnet.

Also does this support command inputs, like credentials?

We have it as an add-on. You can give it a try.

Is there a walk-through. I get it to launch, but that's about it.

I'm using it with Sub-connections.

Do you have the SecureCRT session configured on your local machine?

Thats the problem, we have over 500 devices. Does this still require the sessions to exist on the clients PC? Rather than pushing the information to SecureCRT (Like Putty)?

Clock4 yrs

Unfortunately it need to be somewhere on the local machine. We don't have the possibility to embed a session like what we do with Putty. I think you can create a share folder and specify the url in the configuration.

Ok, I got it to work.

Thanks

What I found out was that the Other parameters already sends /ssh2 and /l and /password, all I needed was %PARENT_HOST%.
