dependent session not working on some devices

Sometimes I needed my router devices as my dependent session which it has a public ip address configured. so that I can connect my router device and other networking devices behind it.

If I set ZTE or Cisco router as my dependent session it will work like a charm, on the other hand, Huawei or H3C router and switches do not work at all.

I wonder why? did it cause by the device operating system or the device default configuration? because I knew that ZTE, Cisco devices are similar and Huawei, H3C devices are similar too.

Hi kingzleshe,

I'm sorry you're having trouble. I'm not familiar enough with all the routers you are working with to definitively say what is different about their configuration. I can say that Dependent Sessions does require that the "jump server" allow port forwarding. It is possible that the Huawei and H3C routers do not allow/support port forwarding. To get a better idea of what is happening it would be useful to review a log of a failed connection attempt. To avoid the possibility of exposing sensitive data on the forums PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH YOUR LOG FILE TO THE FORUM POST, instead please send it via email to Support@VanDyke.com.

- Launch SecureCRT and open SecureCRT's main "File" menu and select the "Trace Options" menu item.

- Open the "File" menu again and choose "Log Session..."
--> Specify a path to your Desktop folder and a name of the log file, such as SCRT_Log.txt.

- Now attempt your connection again.

- When the connection fails, open SecureCRT's "File" menu and look at the "Log Session" menu item. If it has a check-mark next to it, click on it to turn off logging.

- Go to your Desktop folder and locate the SCRT_Log.txt file. Please send the SCRT_Log.txt file to me as an attachment to your reply. Please don't paste the contents into the body of your message -- please attach it!
