RobertCDG,

Could you provide a little more detail about what you're wanting to do, and let us know VanDyke Software product you're using or wanting to use to accomplish your task?

Hi RobertCDG,

You can create a session via the GUI and then move the session INI file to an alternate configuration directory. Using the "/F" command-line option, you should be able to use that as an "alternate configuration folder location" and then use the "/S" for the session within the alternate configuration folder and be good to go. This should hide the session information for the normal GUI tree.

miked, can you confirm that what I advised above should theoretically work?

Hi mekanik,

Thanks for the response - you helped me understand the question from a different perspective. I think your suggestion is a good idea if the goal is to prevent the session from being seen in a SecureCRT Connect window. Here is a step by step guide / example:
  • Create a session named HideMe via the GUI interface, and verify that it works.
  • Locate the HideMe.ini file in the configuration\Sessions folder. The configuration folder is specified in Global Options / General, and the Sessions folder is in the configuration folder, and a file named HideMe.ini is in the Sessions folder.
  • Decide on a new directory that you can use as a configuration folder. For example, C:\Temp\OtherConfig, and create the folder if necessary.
  • Create a Sessions folder in the configuration directory specified above. In keeping with the example so far, I now have C:\Temp\OtherConfig\Sessions.
  • Move the HideMe.ini file into C:\Temp\OtherConfig\Sessions.
  • Start SecureCRT using the /F and /S command-line options:
  • SecureCRT /F "C:\Temp\OtherConfig" /S "HideMe"

, hopefully the solution is what RobertCDG was looking for. Thanks for the confirmation of this also.
