SecureCRT Scripting Support

SecureCRT® Scripting Support

SecureCRT gives you the tools you need to make system administration more efficient. VanDyke Software's terminal emulation program allows you to automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks using scripts.

Task Automation

SecureCRT's scripting functions allow you to perform a wide range of activities, including:

  • Create login scripts
  • Send commands/text to connected hosts/devices
  • Transfer files

Users also have options for how to launch scripts. You may select script files to run from the main menu or map scripts to the customizable button bar or a user-specified keyboard combination.

Multiple Scripting Languages

SecureCRT supports several popular scripting languages:

  • Python
  • VBScript (Windows® only)
  • Jscript (Windows only)
  • PerlScript (Windows only. Requires installation of 3rd party ActiveX scripting engine.)

Support for standard scripting languages means that users do not have to learn a new, proprietary scripting language to automate routine tasks. Support for Python enables scripting capability across most major platforms—Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Script Recorder

Users do not have to be scripting experts to automate tasks in SecureCRT. The script recorder records keystrokes and generates a script file for you. (Script recorder generates VBScript or Python code for Windows users, Python code for Mac and Linux users.)

Get Started

SecureCRT is engineered to help busy IT professionals automate routine tasks. Support for several standard scripting languages, including Python, allows for automation on all supported platforms. The script recorder simplifies script generation to further boost ease-of-use and efficiency. Example scripts demonstrating techniques and functionality can be found in the VBScript Scripting Manual, our online scripting forum, and our main support page.  Download SecureCRT for a free 30-day evaluation.
