Word highlighting

Hi,

I know that SecureCRT SSH will follow whatever the terminal dictates for color highlighting. Is it possible to define keywords (possibly with regular expressions) to highlight in different colors if the keyword matches if the session doesn't for example allow this?

An example is connecting to Cisco equipment. They have no color highlighting and it would make life a lot simpler to identify keywords if there were colors?

If you take a look at chromaterm, it would be nice if SecureCRT can do something similar?

If it's not possible, feature request?

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks!
Nolan

Hi Nolan,

It is not currently possible to use regular expressions or define colors where keyword highlighting it concerned.

I have created two feature requests in our SecureCRT enhancement database to add these features. Should either (color or regular expressions) be added in the future, we will post to this thread.

If you would like to be notified directly, please complete and submit the form at the following location:

Thumbs up word highlighting

I would also like to request for this feature to highlight certain words in different colors.

Also, a better way of adding words to highlight. Adding one word at a time is laborious:

Thanks,
Vikram

Nice request Vikram. We will post to this thread should the feature be implemented.

Can you tell me how you would like to be able to add keywords that would be less laborious?

Thanks Todd, the easiest way I can think of is a simple text file with a list of words can can be browsed and uploaded.
Even better if we can mention the color next to it in a CSV...

Highlight word,color
word1,blue
word2,red
word3,green

This is not currently on the product roadmap. We have received a number of requests for this feature and it will be considered for a future version of SecureCRT.

Lightbulb [box] me

So let's put on our thinking caps MEN! For we are the Masters of our own FATE.

Supply List:
Linux, SecureCRT, ChromaTerm, a Brain.

Step 1: Install Linux. Real men use Linux. If you got your toolbox while you went WINDOWz shopping then you reap what you sow.

Step 2: Pay those guys who built SecureCRT. They're certified badasses and deserve your currency! Now install CRT!

Step 3: Install ChromaTerm. http://www.tunnelsup.com/chromaterm/. Now I'm going to assume some noobs made it here and are using Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04. When you ./configure you probably will get some errors b/c you're missing some libraries; if that's the case: sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libpcre3-dev

Step 4: Set your terminal session to VT100, check ANSI, uncheck C0lor Scheme like so:

Step 5: SSH into your Linux Box from CRT. You mean SSH into the BOX you are using from the BOX you are using?? YES! Sometimes to think outside of the BOX you must first jump into the BOX! So put on your network caps and start thinking like MEN! *cough* 127.0.0.1 *cough*

http://imgur.com/a/EX37O#QwuCkqH

Step 6: Use that sweet CRT Login automation to launch ChromaTerm and then SSH into your ASA or whatever you want to jump to.

http://imgur.com/a/EX37O#wEgFTaM

Step 7: Drink Beer and Celebrate like a MAN!!

BUT WAIT

WHY SO MANY \\\\ in that Login Script!?

Men.. when you BASH into iOS you must use an escape character which happens to be \. So if you're using a domain account ssh domain\username@10.x.x.x becomes ssh domain\\username@10.x.x.x. Now when you automate through CRT they also use \ as an escape character. So now you have ssh domain\\\\username@10.x.x.x. I know someone will be grateful for this pro-tip; for that guy I say DRINK BEER LIKE MEN!!

If you are winning your screen will look like this:

http://imgur.com/a/EX37O#oOFedc4

Here's a thought... throw all of that fancy script into a file to call upon with CRT. But I won't do everything for you..

For the 1% who find this post and implement it you will truely be lookin 1337 my friends. Don't forget to rename those sessions to represent your device you ssh into!

I think that after almost 6 years we deserve more than this. First request appeared in 2008!

It's not on the product roadmap yet, but in the next few weeks we are going to look into the possibility of adding the ability to use different colors for keyword highlighting. So there's a chance this could make it into the next version of SecureCRT.

Has there been any movement on this? If not, is there a future date that we should circle back and harass you all?

It's currently being implemented. I expect a pre-beta version to be available in the next few weeks.
