You will have to create a new session in SecureCRT, giving it the following settings:
Protocol – telnet
Port – 23
Host – localhost
Name – this can be set to anything, in this example we use 'test'
After completing the above steps, go to the directory in which Terminal Logon was installed and edit the tlogon.ini file.
It should look like this:
telnet=C:\Program Files\SecureCRT\SecureCRT.exe /S test
The "telnet" parameter contains the path to SecureCRT.exe and a list of command-line parameters that have to be used. If you consult the SecureCRT manual, you will see that /S will automatically start a session with "test" (the session we have previously configured).
Save the file, run Terminal Logon. After entering the PIN code, you will see a list of accounts, select one of them, and press "Connect".
- Even though the session was configured as a telnet one, it is still done via SSH, as Terminal Logon transparently manages the connection.
- Keep in mind the fact that a firewall you might have will have to be reconfigured, in order to allow the applications to access network resources.
