    Hi all,
    I’ve some problem with telnet connections beacause a port associate to telnet connection is 21 and it’s not possible to change it!

    Any suggestions?

    Could you please explain your problem a little bit?
    Even when choosing “Telnet” as the Method to connect with, you still have the option to modify the remote “Port” manually in the GUI, so, please, what is your problem more exactly?

    – David.

    Hello, Mohamed!

    Still no way to import SecureCRT sessions (and even if I had a way of doing it, I stil have not found a method for decrypting the password it stores… 🙁 )

    Anyway, I’ll further into this request! 🙂

    Hi folks,

    any hints how to add a connection using a username including realm like user@myrealm to connect to a machine? Using the commandline I’m just using the -l option instead of username@server to separate username and host. Even the “username@realm” does not work.
    The pac is generating user@myrealm@machine.

    Hi, Oscar!

    It would be better if you used the Sourceforge facilities for doubts/bugs/requests…

    You are in reason, I’ll fix that! 🙂
