Hi Sinbad,

It is not currently possible to open cmd.exe on the local machine in the SecureCRT terminal window.

I have entered a request to see if this option could be added to a future release of SecureCRT.

If this is added, we will make a post here.

We can also contact you via email. If email would be preferred, please send me a message and reference forum thread 2944.

You could get a "pseudo" session by installing openssh server (Cygwin) on your Windoze box and then SSH into your box - I do this.
The copy and paste works so well via keyboard commands.
For auto login, just copy your keys.

Does not replace CMD 100% but 99% is good enough for me

+1 to this feature request (hopefully either cmd or powershell appears within securecrt someday)
