Question securecrt/securefx integration

i cannot open a securefx session from a securecrt tab. i right click on the securecrt session tab and select "Open SecureFX". it opens a securefx window but i get an error message "Cannot connect to session "XXX" due to configuration problem" where XXX is the name of my securecrt session.

i have verified that the config directories of both products is the same. i have also verified that the HKCU/Software/VanDyke/Global key is set to 1 as described in an earlier thread.

from the same securecrt session tab i have no problem right clicking and selecting "Connect SFTP Tab". that opens just fine.

also from the securefx i can connect to this machine using "Quick Connect".

thanks for your help in advance.


p.s. i am using beta 4 of both products.

This sounds like the transfer protocol for the session you are connected to is set to 'none'. If you open the Session Options dialog for this session and look at the Connection page, what is the File Transfer protocol set to? If it is set to none, try changing it to a valid protocol, either sftp or ftp and try your test again. Are you able to connect to the session with SecureFX now?
