Chapter 15. SecureCRT (Windows)
SecureCRT, created by Van Dyke Technologies, is a commercial SSH client for Microsoft Windows 9x, NT, and 2000. It is structured as a terminal program; in fact, it is based on the terminal program CRT, another Van Dyke product. As a result, SecureCRT's terminal capabilities are quite configurable. It includes emulation of several terminal types, logins via Telnet as well as SSH, a scripting language, a keymap editor, SOCKS firewall support, chat features, and much more. We will focus only on its SSH capabilities, however. SecureCRT supports both SSH-1 and SSH-2 in a single program. Other important features include port forwarding, X11 packet forwarding, and support for multiple SSH identities. It doesn't include an agent. Secure file copy is accomplished not by an scp-type program, but by ZModem, the old protocol for uploading and downloading files. (The remote machine must have ZModem installed.) If ZModem is used while you're logged in via SSH, these file transfers are secure. We've organized this chapter to mirror the first part of the book covering Unix SSH implementations. When appropriate, we refer you to the earlier material for more detailed information. Our discussion of SecureCRT is based on Version 3.1.2, dated September, 2000.
