Software Update: SecureCRT 5.1.1

VanDyke Software today updated SecureCRT to version 5.1.1. SecureCRT is a client for remote control, file transfer and data tunneling using SSH. This is a method of establishing a secure connection between two computers. Here, both the data and part of the IP traffic are encrypted with an encryption method. The changelog of this release shows the following changes:


  • For new installations, the default local directory for SFTP tabs is now “My Documents”. The SFTP local directory can be set through a session INI-file only option called “Sftp Tab Local Directory”.

Bug fixes:

  • There were problems with line drawing characters and menu positions when running dellmgr.
  • On 64-bit systems, pressing “8” brought SecureCRT to the foreground.
  • In some cases, when the SecureCRT window was maximized, the arrow control was placed in the tab bar even though it was not necessary.
  • SSH2: Under certain circumstances, SecureCRT crashed when attempting to start an X client using SSH2 X11 forwarding.
  • SSH2: The trailing slash was no longer being appended during local file completion. This was a change in behavior from 5.0.
  • SSH2: It was not possible to change the passphrase of a public key through the Public Key Properties dialog.
  • SSH2: When initiating an SSH2 password change from the Password Properties dialog and multiple authentications were selected, misleading errors were displayed.
