SecureCRT® Session Management Tools and Features
VanDyke Software delivers a terminal emulation and secure remote access program with more robust session management capabilities. The ability to save a number of settings and configurations and multiple ways to organize your sessions saves users time and increases the ease with which they can work with active sessions.
Save Your Sessions
Many terminal emulators do not let you save session data, forcing you to manually enter host IDs and logon credentials, define protocols and authentication methods, etc. every time. With SecureCRT, you can input connection information once, save it, and then quickly launch saved sessions from the Session Manager, the Connect bar, even from a desktop shortcut via the command line.
The Session Manager (database) allows you to save information for thousands of sessions, including:
- Server name/locations
- Logon information (e.g, user and password - not a security "best practice")
- Type of authentication
- Order of authentication
- Terminal type (emulation) and initial size
- Anti-idle settings
For ad hoc sessions, you can quickly connect using the Quick Connect dialog or Connect bar, which only requires a server name—no configurations necessary.
Organize Your Sessions
With information for thousands of sessions saved, you need to be able to organize sessions in order to quickly find, connect, and manipulate sessions. SecureCRT's Session Manager allows you to organize sessions into hierarchical folders to create logical groups. All sessions in a particular group may be opened and manipulated at once.
SecureCRT also offers a number of visual displays to help you organize and keep track of activity on all open sessions. The tabbed interface makes it easy to switch between sessions, and the tiled display makes comparing sessions/output easier.
Save Your Settings
SecureCRT gives you a number of session customization options, for example:
- Color schemes (foreground and background)
- Keyword highlighting
- Connection status indicators
- Font display (type and size)
- Scrollback buffer size
- Session names
- Terminal size (number of rows and columns)
Settings and configurations can be saved with connection data so that sessions need only be customized once to fit your needs and preferences.
You do not have to start from scratch every time you need to connect to a remote machine. SecureCRT allows you to save session connection information as well as session customization settings so that you can quickly connect to, organize, and work in multiple sessions.
