TAB colors (not terminal colors) based on node

I usually have a multiple windows open for each system and connected to multiple systems at the same time in the same secureCRT window, is there a way to auto tag each system with a color, that would help me differentiate one system vs other easily?

Thank you in advance!

Since the title of your posting refers to the TAB colors -- not the terminal colors -- you're out of luck for now, sorry.

There's not currently a way to set the color of the actual tab element in SecureCRT's user interface, so I've added a feature request on your behalf for this functionality. While I don't have any ETA as to if/when such functionality might ever be implemented, I can promise that if a version of SecureCRT becomes available with this ability, we will post news of it here. If you desire to be notified directly by email of such news, feel free to send email to support@vandyke.com with a subject of: "I want tab coloring capability - Forum Thread #13878".

In the mean time, an idea that comes to mind for helping separate out different server types would be to use tab groups to help you differentiate between them.
The Tab Groups in SecureCRT video is a good place to learn more about this and see it in action if you're interested in this approach at all.
