How to specify VTY Line in SecureCRT for Console Server

We have a console server that's connected to our devices and the shortcut to connect directly to a device behind the console server is to specify the VTY line. For instance, if I wanted to connect to the console of the device plugged into port 14 of the console server, I'd use the following SSH command:

ssh admin:14@10.10.10.10

Then be prompted for my password and successfully authenticated and then dropped into the console of the device plugged into port 14.

I cannot figure out how to create a session inside of SecureCRT that does the same thing. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

What's clear in your example is that the username contains the "port", and the SSH server on the console is simply taking the username and peeling off the :14 from the username specified by the client in order to know where to redirect your connection.

To connect to the device at port 20 on the console server, just specify your username in SecureCRT as admin:20. For example:
Here's another example if you need to specify port 14 to this unique console server:
Everything else remains the same -- just the username seems to need to be specified to include the :port_number designation.

Let us know what you discover.
