Question Secure CRT 7.3 Serial Named pipe from CLI

Hi All,

I can't open a named pipe serial session by command line, if I open a session (successfully) via the GUI and I check the command line used in process explorer I have the following :

"C:\Program Files\VanDyke Software\Clients\SecureCRT.EXE" /SERIAL (name of the pipe)

if I try to do the same via cli I get this error :

Error configuring port parameters for serial port (name of the pipe)

Did you have any luck with this?

Hello Giovanni (and others),

The customer also contacted us via email and, after verifying some details internally, this functionality is not yet available.

I have created a feature request in our product enhancement database for the ability to make ad hoc connections to named pipe via command-line. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11801" in the subject line.

As a workaround, if you save the session in SecureCRT, you can use:

SecureCRT.exe /S "serial-named pipe"
