Cross Platform Session INI Files
I currently store my sessions on dropbox which is good cause I can access my sessions on my linux, mac and pc now.

I see that there are 2 predefined paths that are

What is the best way to handle paths inside the session ini files?

Is it possible we either have a way to predefined some platform specif paths like

this way we could cleanup the ini files to make them truly cross platform.

Hi alexj212,

Cross platform paths are currently possible without your intervention in SecureCRT 7.2 and newer.

What is the version of SecureCRT that you are using?

I am running 7.2.6 but what I wanted to do was cleanup the ini files so they where good on all platforms. In terms of home dir etc. default upload / download dirs.

What style path is preferred / or \?

Hi alexj212,

The directory separator used would be the one for the platform where you are making an edit. When you move the configuration folder to a new platform, the separator will be modified as needed.

The following directory locations are currently supported:
  • SecureCRT installation folder
  • SecureCRT configuration folder
  • Documents folder
If you point the log file or a download directory, etc. to a folder in one of the above locations, SecureCRT will automatically handle any conversion necessary.

On Mac OS X, you can use the .ssh folder as well. This would point to the Documents folder on Windows.

Will this work for you?
