Opening SecureCRT session from CLI

Hi ,

I'm trying to open certain securecrt sessions from CLI.
Getting pretty close but I can't figure out what the actual 'session' is.

My securecrt layout is as follows:
- company folder 1
- folderlevel 2
- Device 1
- Device 2

That 'Device 1' then contains the connection details like protocol and hostname.

The command I'm using is:
securecrt /T /SESSION_FOLDER "company folder 1/folderlevel 2" /S "Device 1"

But whenever I try that it always complains "Device 1 was not found in the session Database" and then goes on to open every session inside that 'folderlevel 2' folder (including my 'Device 1' session).

So what should I use for the actual session?

Hi koenv,

The /SESSION_FOLDER option opens all of the sessions in the specified folder, and is not normally used in conjunction with the /S option.

If you want to open a single session, you would provide the relative path to the session. The path is relative to the Sessions folder in the Session Manager/Connect dialog.

Here is an example of how to open Device 1:
/S "company folder 1\folderlevel 2\Device 1"
Does this help you accomplish your goal?
