Slow scrolling in SecureCRT 5.5

I have an old copy of SecureCRT (5.5) and I use it to connect to my work's Linux cluster for development and support.
There is one problem with using it and it shows itself when doing for example, a grep of a string through a number of files in a directory.
The the found strings scroll down, it is very jerky and a a section on the right hand side of the screen scrolls more slowly than on the left. The scrolling is very slow, and also I cannot control-C to stop the output coming to the screen. If I do other operation such as an "ls -R" output is quite fast to the screen, and also control-C is enabled.
With a Putty session these problems are not evident.
Is this a problem with the version of SecureCRT, stty settings, or what?

I have the same problem. Scrolling can't be stopped in SecureCRT, but can be stopped in Putty. Can you post the fix to this forum please?

Hello dumbmick,

The author of the previous post had a unique environment involving VPNs, Citrix and various remote operating systems. Our own tests comparing the rate of scrolling data resulted in less than a 1% difference. The customer reported that "ctrl-c" successfully performed an interrupt on Solaris operating systems, but not on RedHat. Therefore, I would like to determine all the necessary variables from your environment.

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

What protocol are you using?

What is the remote operating system?
