SecureCRT software combines the secure login and data transfer capabilities of Secure Shell (SSH) with the reliability, usability and configurability of a proven Windows terminal emulator.
Yes - 30 day timeout
- Added support for regular expressions in keyword highlighting
- Added the ability to specify colors for keyword highlighting
- In keyword highlighting, the styles (reverse video, bold, and color) can be combined
- Added the ability to edit keywords used for keyword highlighting
- Added support for exporting and importing SecureCRT settings to and from XML, which makes it easier to copy settings from one machine to another
- Mac/Linux: Added a session manager that can be used in place of the modal Connect dialog. The session manager can be in a pane in the SecureCRT window or can be an undocked modeless dialog
- Added a search filter to the session manager, which helps find sessions quickly, especially when a large number of sessions have been saved
- Added the ability to connect to a remote system through a named pipe
- Added the ability to script Kermit file transfers
- Added the ability to specify the substitution parameter %USERNAME% as a session username
- Added a new session option "Position cursor on left click" that allows the mouse to move the cursor to a different location
- Added a new session option "Enable alternate screen switching"
- Added an option to disable the hover text for buttons on the button bar
- Added a new menu item "Close All Sessions" to the tab menu, which allows all sessions to be closed without closing the SecureCRT window
- Added a new global option "Exit SecureCRT when last session is closed" that specifies whether or not the SecureCRT window should be closed when the last session is closed
- Added a global option to swap ENTER and CTRL+ENTER in the command (chat) window
- Added the ability for the command (chat) window to be controlled independently in each SecureCRT window
- Mac: Added support for Finder tags
- Added the ability to store keys larger than 2048 bits in agent
- Added the ability to generate keys larger than 2048 bits
- When connecting a session, if there's an agent key associated with the session, it is tried first. This can help prevent a session from failing to connect because the maximum number of authentication retries was exceeded
- The MD5 and SHA-1 fingerprints are now displayed in dialogs that show host key information
- When multiple sessions are being edited, if a single expect or send string is changed in the session automated logon option, only the single string is changed in all the sessions. Previously, the entire expect/send block was written to the sessions
- Added the ability to send a disconnected session to a new window
- Log files are saved with a .log extension by default unless a different extension is specified
- Font information was added to the information stored in the personal data folder
- Mac: The folder used when a key or button is mapped to MENU_LOG_SESSION is the same as the folder used when "Log Session" is selected from the File menu

Reviewing 6.5 Beta 2 (Oct 17, 2009)
The best of the best. I've been using this in the SecureCRT/SecureFX bundle for years. Yes, it's expensive, but the capabilities are unbeatable for professionals. The scripting and tabbed interface make difficult and repetitive jobs a breeze.
Expensive, but worth it, if you have a need for a full-featured professional product, this is it. I wouldn't be without it. Also, top notch support over the years, and responsive to customer requests for new featured. I've had many I suggested added.
Call me a satisfied user.

Slash the price in half, and this would be perfect. A hundred bucks just for a terminal client software is too expensive for anyone but medium to small businesses.

I've used SCRT for a few years now (since version 4) and will continue to use it. The scripting is absolutely incredible. Imagine having to transfer a file from a one server to a gateway server to an internet ftp site, then to your pc -- a couple of times each day every day. SCRT lets you script that and make into a button.
It's just awesome.
Reviewing 6.0 (Jan 16, 2008)
Well, you're right about the speed here and I can also add that the resource consumption are higher than putty's: 15MB vs. 5MB on a fresh connection (minimum lines in the buffer).
Still I'll rate this high because, regardless of the low speed and hight memory requirements, is still the only suitable tool due to better sessions management screen and estra-session automations it provides.
(Is very hard to use putty when working with 195 Unix machines in my case).
4.50 out of 5
Reviewing 6.0 Beta 5 (Jan 9, 2008)
I do like SecureCRT features but performance wise I have to agree with TomekLutel. Terminal speed is much slower than Putty, even with fast lines (24Mb).
