If you need to open an SFTP tab to the same directory you're working on in your terminal window, you can eliminate some typing by using an escape sequence which will allow you to use relative paths, rather than the file menu or ALT+P (Command+P on the Mac) accelerator. This tip assumes you're using an SSH2 session.
Here is an example of how to set up and use an sftp-session escape sequence that opens an SFTP tab in your current server-side working directory.
Send the following escape sequence from the remote system to open the
tab window. (You need to specify the current working directory because
SecureCRT doesn't know what directory you are currently in on the remote
<esc>&&Bsftp-session <directory to open in>\n
Under UNIX, you can use the following command:
echo "^[&&Bsftp-session `pwd`"
Note: To get the "^[" characters, type "CTRL+V","CTRL+[".
Now that you have your alias "sftptab" set up, you can use the following escape sequence to open a new SFTP tab in your current working directory:% pwd
