Hello all!! I wonder if exist some way to SCRT connect to the local shell instead use the cmd.exe, I think it's just what missing about SCRT to be my only tool :D

Thanks a lot!

Hi Julio,

Thanks for the post. I have created a feature request in our SecureCRT enhancement database to add the ability to open a local shell connection in SecureCRT for Windows. Should we add this in the future, we will post to this forum thread.

If you would like to be notified directly, please complete and submit the form at the following location:
Submit Feature Request
In the meantime, you may want to consider installing a Telnet or SSH server to which you could connect and gain access to the local shell.

I was wondering if this feature will ever make it to the product?

Hi pablomguevara,

It is not out of the realm of possibility, but this feature has not yet become a top priority for implementation.

Since my last post, there has been no change in the status of this feature request, but we will post to this thread should something become available for testing.

I would like to see this added as well.

Thanks jim.arrows. We will post to this thread should we add the ability to connect to a local shell on Windows in a future SecureCRT release.

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