securefx for MAC

I am trying to get secureFX to open up as a gui in my MAC. When I open it up I see all my saved sessions. I double click on one of them and it just opens up an ssh session not an sftp session. I have attempted to add a new connection and the same thing happens.

I know that I can right click on the ssh session and open an sftp session that way, but I would like to have drag and drop capabilities from my Mac.

Not sure if it is a MAC or a system setting, but I used to be able to do this on my PC.

Hi mrjoli021,

Did you install the SecureCRT + SecureFX bundle?

Do you see a SecureFX icon on the SecureCRT toolbar?

If so, you should be able to launch the SecureFX GUI by clicking the SecureFX icon in SecureCRT so that you can drag and drop the desired files.

Got it working. Under the session I had to set the file transfer to SFTP.
