View Full Version : SecureCRT 6 locks using FTDI serial adapter during pasting.

10-28-2010, 09:56 AM

I have securecrt version 6.6 on Windows 7 64 bit. (although this problem has been occuring for some time now). And occurs on multiple computers.

I see the following problem when using usb to serial port adapters with securecrt 6.6 (and earlier versions as well).

The problem is when I do a paste into the secure crt window, most of the time, the window freezes part way through the paste (can be as little as 2 lines of code to paste). I have to disconnect and reconnect. Then it works again until I try another paste and it happens again. It happens only with SecureCRT. If I use teraterm v3.13 it doesn't happen. It happens when using SecureCRT with keyspan serial port adapters, FTDI adapters and Cisco's direct USB adapter.

I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this but it gets quite frustrating when I'm trying to configure multiple switches and I can't paste into the windows.

thanks for any advice or help.
