feature request

There should be an option to save all the sessions.For example i have 5 active sessions (in tabs) to diffrent hosts. I should be able to save this whole thing, so next time i just need to open the saved file and all my sessions should show up again (in tabs) just the way it was before. This will be very useful if someone needs to create several sessions on a routine basis.

Auto Sessions

This is sort of in there already. They're called auto-sessions. It connects to all the sessions you have listed:

Options > Global > Default Session > USE AUTO SESSION

Now ADD all 5 sessions you want to start together to the setup screen, and click OK

Now every time you start SecureCRT it will start those 5 sessions automatically.

It's not "on demand" but it works!

Hi Sinbad,

Besides setting up these sessions as autosessions, you can also create a shortcut on your desktop in the newer versions of SecureCRT that will automatically launch the selected sessions when used.

To create this shortcut, just select the session's in the 'Connect' dialog, right click on one of the sessions and select 'Create Desktop Shortcut' from the pop-up menu.

I have also entered a request for an option to be added to SecureCRT so that the current sessions could be saved and restored in a later instance of SecureCRT.

If this option is added to any future release, we will post here.

If you would prefer to be contacted via email, please send me a message and note this forum thread (2792).

You may be interested in a new option that was added to SecureCRT 6.2. It remembers the sessions that were open the last time SecureCRT ran and connects to them automatically. SecureCRT 6.2 is currently in beta testing and can be downloaded from the following web page.


The new option can be found in the Global Options dialog on the Default Session category.
