Hello Olaf,

Have you tried the newest (beta) release, SecureCRT 6.7?

While the timing is the opposite of what you want (blank tab first, then supply ip/hostname), using the new Connect Bar might meet your needs.

In the Connect Bar, valid ad hoc sessions can be connected (similar to command-line) via syntax such as that listed below:
ssh2://ip_address:Port /FIREWALL "My Firewall"
/S "My Session"
A future release will likely allow just the session name to be typed and not require the preceding /S.

I have also added this thread to a feature request in our development database to make new tabs more browser-like. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #7270" in the subject line.

In the meantime, do you think the new Connect Bar might meet your needs?

SecureCRT 6.7 beta 2 can be downloaded here.
