Software Update: SecureFX 6.5.2

In addition to SecureCRT, VanDyke Software also lifted SecureFX to version number 6.5.2 on Thursday. This program gives the user an ssh2 channel that allows the exchange of files via sftp and ftp. This is useful in automated environments where important plain text passwords are not allowed to be sent over a line. SecureFX not only has a graphical interface, but can also be used from the command line and thus in batch files. Since version 6.5, the following improvements have been made:

Changes in SecureFX 6.5.2 (Official)


  • 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.

Changes in SecureFX 6.5.1 (Official)

Bug fixes:

  • If the network connection was lost during an ASCII file transfer, SecureFX could crash.
  • When dragging a tabbed session to a new group, if the right mouse button was pressed and released during the drag, SecureFX could crash.
  • It was possible to close the transfer queue while a transfer was in progress.
  • If SecureFX and SecureCRT were integrated and the file transfer or terminal protocol was changed to “None”, the change was not saved.
  • In the Key Generation wizard, if a key was generated and then the user clicked “Back”, changed the size of the key, and answered “Yes” to the prompt about regenerating the key, the key was not regenerated.
  • The menu was not expanded when the ALT+ key was pressed.
