On a Linux/Mac shell, the \ character usually means you're escaping some special character, so you have to double them up (as in \\) to get a single \.

Within the Username field of SecureCRT's Quick Connect window, there is no need for escapement; just use a single \, as in mycorp\user.

If you continue to experience problems, generate a Trace Options log as per the instructional video on our YouTube channel, and send us an email with the Trace Options output log attached (use a subject of "ATTN: Jake - Forum thread 13282"). Don't post your trace options here in the public forums, because there may be sensitive info within it that you don't want broadcast to the world here on the forums.
