SecureCRT cannot currently be used to connect locally to access CMD.EXE, or act as a replacement for the CMD window. However, I've added your forum post to our request database and we'll post a follow up message to this forum thread if the ability is added in a future release. If added and you'd like to receive e-mail notification, please let us know and refer to forum thread 6345.

Local shell support has been implemented in SecureCRT 8.7*, which is in beta. The installer can be downloaded here:



* Must be running Windows 10 build 1809 or later (or Server 2019)
