New Connections not going into Tabs

If I have securecrt running with a connect or two in tabs then I start another connection via the command line o via the windows 7 recent items it creates these sessions in new securecrt windows rather than the current window in a new tab. Is there a way to force securecrt to only run once and have all other calls start in a tab rather than another program altogether?

Hello balto,

You can open sessions in tabs using the command-line option "/T". This option would be followed by the session option or the protocol and hostname if connecting via an "ad hoc" session.

For example:
Code:
SecureCRT.exe /T /S <session_name>
SecureCRT.exe /T /SSH2 <host_name>
Additional information on the "/T" command-line option can be found in the 'Using the Software / Command-Line Options / Table of Protocol-Specific Command-Line Options' topic of SecureCRT's help file.

That works from the commandline thank you. What about from the recent items in windows 7 task bar and start menu? They still open in new windows instead of tabs.

Hello balto,

Were the sessions originally launched with the "/T" option?

If you still have some sessions in the "recent items" list that did not include the "/T" option, they would still launch new instances of SecureCRT.
