command line option to session->folder->Connect_in_Tabs
Is there a command line option to session->folder->Connect_in_Tabs ?

I can do this, to start up specific sessions:
"C:\Program Files\SecureCRT5\SecureCRT.EXE" /S folder0\session0 /S folder0\session1

But, since I already have a session folders containing my desired tabs, I'm looking for a command line way to "Connect In Tabs" the session folder(s)? Something like:
"C:\Program Files\SecureCRT5\SecureCRT.EXE" /S folder0
"C:\Program Files\SecureCRT5\SecureCRT.EXE" /S folder0\*

(using Version 5.1.0 (build 260))

Hi Duaner,

Currently, there isn't a method to specify a folder on the command line and have SecureCRT connect to the sessions in that folder.

I have entered a feature request for this option.

If this is added to any future version of SecureCRT, a post will be made here.

If you would prefer to be contacted via email, please send a message to with a subject of 'ATTN: Teresa Forum Thread 1346.

There is also a quick method to create a desktop shortcut to that folder to have SecureCRT open all the connection in that folder.

By right clicking the folder in the 'Connect' dialog and selecting 'Create Desktop Shortcut', SecureCRT will automatically create a shortcut that contains a /S for each session in that folder. The command line would already have the '/S Sessionfolder\session1 /S Sessionfolder\Session2.....' so that you do not have to manually type each session name.

The shortcut would need to be created again if any sessions in that folder changed names, were deleted or were created.
