SecureCRT for OS X

Hi all. This is one of the few programs I truly miss like crazy on the Windows platform. I understand there's a "fix" using Crossover for Mac, but someone mentioned something about the possibility of SecureCRT being ported over to OS X? If this is true, might anyone have an ETA (however tentative this might be)?

Thank you ahead of time,
John

Hi loadedmind,

We are currently working on a version of SecureCRT for MacOS X.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our development database for a MacOS X version of SecureCRT and we will post here when SecureCRT for MacOS X becomes available. If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #3526" in the subject line.

Can you tell me what top 3 features or functionality components you would need to have in a version of SecureCRT for the MacOS X platform?

I'm very interested in SecureCRT for OSX as well.

Aside from the basics - tabs, saved sessions, SSH, having zmodem file transfer is very important for me.

I'd happily do beta testing as well.

OSX Support

Hi,

I've been using SecureCRT on Windows for quite some time and have now moved to OSX. The one thing I'm missing on OSX is SecureCRT as I have around 200 client's machines I connect to on a semi regular basis.

Everyone else in the office has been using OSX/Linux for quite some time and I've always shown off SecureCRT to them. Now that I can't run it they're back to laughing at me

So, the second that it comes out I'll want it! I have absolutely no problem paying whatever it costs to get it working on my new computer!

The main features I use are:

* Logon scripts (root access denied, so login as me, su -, enter password etc)
* Remembering login passwords (I know I could do this with keys, but with over 200 hosts...)
* The buttons down the bottom - I only started using those recently, but ended up having buttons for most common tasks i.e. make clean && make && make install

So, mark me as interested!

Hi venturevoip,

Thank you for the feedback on the desired features for SecureCRT for Mac OSX.

Have all the co-workers that have laughed at you in the past been entered into the feature request for a Unix/Linux port of SecureCRT?

Or do you think they will use the OSX version when available?

Will the OS X port allow for console / serial connectivity?

I am desperate for this OS X version to come out. I'll give you a blank cheque if you can just give me an idea of when it will be out!

What I need it for is to access routers via a USB to serial converter to the router / switch console port. Mac OS X's keyboard however does not allow for a BREAK key that is required to facilitate changing the boot parameters (via ROMMON mode). I've tried running a VM of XP on the Mac as well as a native XP partition under Boot Camp but under neither of these am I able to get a Break key sequence to operate! Apple provides keyboard mappings in their Boot Camp drivers to the XP OS but doesnt include one for the break key.

I beg of you to allow the OS X port of SecureCRT to allow for this ... please?

Regards

Hello countdrachma,

I have added this thread to a feature request in our development database for serial support in SecureCRT for OS X (ability to send a control break). Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #3526" in the subject line.
