SecureCRT Software

SecureCRT is a software terminal emulator that allows the use of SSH (Secure Shell) to access a remote computer or server. SecureCRT supports VT100 emulation, telnet, SSH, kerberos, and serial port connections. It comes with a scripting language and can be used across Ethernet networks or dial-up connections.  The default connection type is SSH2, which complies with the stated goals for terminal connections to UWIT servers.
