SecureCRT on Linux

Well the headline says it all. If you're reading this, you work in networking/security, and you don't know what SecureCRT is, then foo on you. SecureCRT is a telnet/SSH terminal emulator. Unlike other terminal emulators like PuTTY which doesn't have the ability to save passwords in an encrypted form, SecureCRT does.

The downside of all this is that until now SecureCRT has only been available on Windows, and months of begging the devs to come up with a  Linux version haven't helped at all. Attempts to install it on WINE have either failed till now or been very buggy.

Apparently this has all been fixed recently and SecureCRT now works fine with the latest version of WINE available at Sourceforge. You must use that version because using "apt-get wine" or whatever you use to connect to repositories install the buggy versions.

More info is avalable here.

BTW, there is also an open source product called SecureGRT for Linux but this is still in the Pre-Alpha development stage and has only 1 developer.

Wow....and it only took them 4.5 years! :!D

One could only hope that ALL of their development efforts are so speedy! </sarcasm>
