Hi Tron,

Serial connections on the Mac OS are *extremely dependent* on having an up-to-date driver and compatible adapter.

Are you using a USB->serial adapter?

What model/vendor?

What version of SecureCRT is installed?

What is the specific Mac OS?

Does the vendor of the device indicate it is compatible with that OS?
