Use session name as hostname or vice versa

Is there a way to refer to one field from another?

When I create a new session I tend to copy an existing session. I rename the session (typically as the hostname or IP) then have to go into it and also change the hostname to the same value.

Is there a way to have the hostname refer to the session name or vice versa? This would make it super easy to create new sessions?

Hi someguy99,

Not presently. I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to support log file substitutions %S and %F in a session's Hostname field. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include Feature Request - Forum Thread #14072 in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

However, if you use Quick Connect when creating a session, it does not give you the ability to specify session name separate from the hostname/IP address so you might want to make a session created that way your template for copying/pasting sessions. Then, if you just edit the session name (in Session Manager) to change to a new hostname/IP, the connection hostname/IP changes as well.
