SecureCRT 5.1 beta 2

Posted on Wednesday, February 22 2006 @ 15:06 CET by LSDsmurf

SecureCRT 5.1 (beta 2) complies with FIPS 140-2 cryptography requirements, offers improved authentication with X.509 digital certificates, adds the ability to easily launch multiple sessions, and improves SSH agent functionality.

New features:
  • Added history support to the chat window, allowing previous commands to be viewed, edited, and sent.
  • SSH2: Passwords for SSH2 sessions can be changed from the Session Options dialog using the SSH2 protocol when it is supported by the remote machine.
  • Added a global-file-only option "Clipboard Data Format", which allows the clipboard data format to be set to CF_TEXT, CF_OEMTEXT, or CF_UNICODETEXT.
  • When "FIPS mode" is enabled, invalid cryptographic algorithms are not displayed in the Session Options dialog.
  • When "FIPS Mode" is enabled, it is displayed in the About box.
  • SSH2: Added default support for X.509 certificate server host keys.
  • SSH2: When a key exchange method is not supported, a message is logged to the trace output.
  • SSH1/SSH2: Authentication methods can be edited in the Session Options dialog for SSH1 and SSH2 sessions that are connected.
Bug fixes:
  • When SecureCRT and SecureFX were integrated and the terminal protocol for a session was set to SSH2 and the transfer protocol was set to FTP, if the password was saved, it had to be re-entered when switching between SecureCRT and SecureFX.
  • Paste sometimes used Unicode, even though ASCII text was selected.
  • When multiple sessions were connected and the "Always on Top" setting was changed, the setting did not always have the correct value when a different session was active.
  • After installing SecureCRT and running it for the first time, if the evaluation dialog was quit, the next time SecureCRT was run, it tried to migrate unnecessarily.
  • SSH2: Pressing OK in the GSSAPI Properties dialog caused SecureCRT to crash
  • SSH2: SecureCRT did not honor the SFTP Tab Local directory setting.
  • SSH2: When "FIPS Mode" was enabled, the New Host Key dialog did not display the server's fingerprint. It is now displayed as a SHA-1 hash when "FIPS Mode" is enabled.
  • SSH1: Under certain circumstances, SSH1 host keys could not be saved.
