Older versions of SecureCRT (prior to 8.7.x) which don't support "true color" (24-bit color codes) present themselves to the remote shell as a terminal of type: "xterm".

Newer versions of SecureCRT (8.7.x and newer) which do support true color present themselves to the remote shell as a terminal of type: "xterm-256color".

It seems that your remote application may not understand what an xterm-256color terminal is, or otherwise might be confused by it.

If you want to have xterm capabilities (rather than relenting to VT100), and avoid confusing the remote app, you can leave the terminal emulation set to Xterm, and then set the Terminal type field to "xterm" in the Terminal > Emulation > Advanced category of Session Options in SecureCRT so that SecureCRT will advertise itself as "xterm" instead of "xterm-256color".
