SecureCRT 7.0.2 Mac / Scrolling issues

I am running SecureCRT 7.0.2 for Mac. I am using Emulation "Linux" for my terminal, and I have the scroll-back window size set to 128000. I noticed that when I am doing a "tail -f filename" on a file and it's scrolling lots of data after after a bit of time the window will stop showing data as the file is scrolling but if i stop the tail and restart it, it works again?

Hello devinacosta,

Are you connecting to a remote machine, or local shell?

Which protocol are you using?

Can you send a raw log to support@vandyke.com with subject Forum Thread 10775?

To create a raw log:
  1. Before connecting with the session, select "Raw Log Session" from SecureCRT's "File" menu.
  2. In the "Select Log File" dialog, choose a folder and filename in which you would like the log text to be stored and press the "Save" button. At this point, if you open the "File" menu, you will notice that the "Raw Log Session" menu item now has a check-mark next to it; this indicates that raw logging is activated.
  3. Now connect to the remote machine and run tail -f filename.
  4. Once the problem occurs, disconnect the session and select "Raw Log Session" from the "File" menu to turn off the raw logging feature.
  5. Browse to the location of the raw log file and add the file as an attachment to your e-mail reply.
