Mac OS X gets SecureCRT!

I haven’t been a Mac user for very long, but I have been a SecureCRT user for many years. For those who may not know, SecureCRT is a terminal emulator program that provides client access to telnet, ssh, serial sessions and more (I presume more, I really only use it for the aforementioned reasons). During my brief, but so far highly satisfying time as a Mac user, I have somewhat missed the use of SecureCRT, as it has only been available for Windows. In order to access telnet, ssh or serial sessions, I’ve learned to use Terminal is nice because of it’s tabbing ability (clearly blows away Windows’ command prompt), and it might even be nicer if I could learn how to automate some of my uses with it.

But, as this post’s title implies, SecureCRT is now available (in beta form) for Mac OS X! Let me show you how I’ve been using it.

If you’ve not entered a license key (like me), when you fire it up, you’ll get a nag screen letting you know how much longer you’ve got left to evaluate it. As you can see, my time is quickly running out, as I’ve only got 17 days remaining!
