Local Shell for Windows?

The linux version allows for local shell access. Are there any plans to allow local shell access (cmd.exe) for windows? I believe this is the only feature I feel I am missing.

Hello sprink,

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for access to cmd.exe inside of CRT SecureCRT window (Windows local shell). Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11039" in the subject line.

Hi Brenda,

Could you please add to the feature request asking to allow letting the user configure which executable is run as the local shell? I'd also like to see this feature, but I would rather run PowerShell in the local session. cmd.exe is, for most intents and purposes, obsolete.

Hi Matt,

Yes, I altered the summary of the existing feature request to include PowerShell.

I know this is an old thread but -- Just wondering if there has been any movement on this feature request. I've been trying to pull a friend away from another product but the ability to open a local shell in a tabs as he does in the other product is the hang up. I've been waiting to see it too. Thanks!

Hi WizardXL883C,

There hasn't been any change in status of this feature request. Local shells on Windows are not the same as they are on *NIX operating systems.

We will post to this thread if this feature is ever implemented.

In the meantime, you could use a server on the local machine and connect to that.

Hello,

I would like to put in my +1 on this feature request. I'd love to be able to connect to a local powershell terminal from within SecureCRT and it's a major missing feature in my opinion especially for those of use who do both local development and remote management of servers on the same machine. Having to have two different terminal emulators open at the same time is a bit messy and it'd be wonderful if SecureCRT could do both -- even if it were to just be a wrapper containing powershell.exe in a tab.

-John

Hi, jchamb2010.

Thank you for your interest in this feature! I can see how the ability to connect to a local PowerShell from within SecureCRT would streamline your daily tasks. I have added your +1 to the feature request!

We will be sure to post here if the feature becomes available in a future release of SecureCRT!
