Software Update: SecureCRT 6.5.2

VanDyke Software released version 6.5.2 of SecureCRT on Thursday. SecureCRT is, simply put, a extensive version of Putty; and somewhat less simply it is a client for remote control, file transfers and data tunneling using ssh. Ssh is a method of establishing a secure connection between two computers, in which both the data and part of the IP traffic is encrypted. New in version 6.2 is, among other things, the possibility to adjust the settings of multiple sessions at the same time. The logging functions have also been expanded and a public key or a smart card can now be used for authentication. In version 6.5.2, the following changes and improvements have also been made:


  • The SecureFX version in the Windows uninstall “DisplayVersion” registry key now contains the point release number in addition to the major and minor version numbers.

Bug fixes:

  • SecureFX crashed after selecting the right-click menu item “Go To->Home/Root” on a remote session that could not connect.
  • Canceling out of the Choose Transfer Type dialog caused all transfers to go into the pending state rather than canceling all the transfers as it did in prior versions.
  • FTP/SSL: Unencrypted data connections failed when using PORT.
