Arrow How-To: Open a local shell session in SecureCRT on Ubuntu WSL

Would you like to be able to open a local bash shell in SecureCRT on Ubuntu WSL? Please refer to the following requirements and configuration steps:

Requirements:
  • SecureCRT 8.7.0 or newer
  • Windows 10 build 1809 or newer
  • Windows update services enabled
Configuration Steps:
  1. From Windows' Settings or Control Panel, search for "Turn Windows features on or off" and enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux feature. (This will require a restart)
  2. Install Ubuntu 18.04 either from the Microsoft Store or manually using the following link:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...install-manual
  3. Install SecureCRT version 8.7.0 or newer on Windows 10 (1809 or newer)

  4. Launch SecureCRT and then Quick Connect. Select "Local Shell" for the protocol and replace cmd.exe with bash.exe
  5. Connect your local shell session, voila!
