Each user has a Config folder that stores their settings. Inside the Config folder are various folders and files including the Global.ini file, which stores you global settings and a folder named "Sessions", which stores the .ini files associated with your sessions.

We offer an export/import tool under the Tools menu in SecureCRT. You have the option of exporting and importing any combination of your Global Options, Sessions, License and Scheduled Tasks (If you are using the Windows version). When you use the export tool, SecureCRT will create an xml file containing all of the information you choose to export. When you use the import tool, you need to specify that xml file. Duplicates will be ignored. So files with the same name on both machines will be omitted. If you have a session named "Session1" on the machine that is doing the export and the machine doing the import also has a session named "Session1", that session will not be imported. It is important to know that if you are using a Configuration Passphrase when you use the export tool, you will need to provide that configuration passphrase when you do the import.

Another thing to be aware of is that there is a setting in the Configuration Paths category of your Global Options labeled "Store personal data separately". If you enable that setting, SecureCRT will remove your saved credentials from your sessions and store them in a separate folder. That setting will make it possible for you to share your sessions without sharing your credentials.

If you don't want to use the Export and Import tools, you can simply make any new .ini files available for sharing and instruct your users to copy them into their "Sessions" folder. Once the end user owns their own copy of the session.ini files, they can save their own passwords or customize the sessions in whatever way they want.
