Hi teggenberger,

SecureCRT makes a call to the system to open the serial port when a serial connection is made. So it is likely that the behavior is a result of a configuration issue on the machine. This theory is also supported by the "Permission denied" error that you are seeing. SecureCRT is not allowed to prohibit or grant access to operating system level functions.

Is your user account a member of the dialout group listed for your console cable?

We had a customer report similiar behavior in the past and he provided the following steps:

1. Confirm that /dev/ttyS0 is member of the dialout group using:
Code:
        ls -l /dev/ttyS0
2. Make your user account a member of the dialout group using:
Code:
        sudo adduser <username> dialout
3. Reboot using:
Code:
        sudo reboot
