Install SecureCRT + SecureFX

SecureCRT is a terminal emulation program for Windows. It allows encrypted Secure Shell (SSH1 and SSH2) sessions with many servers and with Stanford's distributed network of UNIX computers.

SecureFX  is a secure file transfer program. It supports SSH2, SFTP, FTP/TLS, SCP, and legacy FTP in a single client. ​

A single installer installs both SecureFX and SecureCRT​, and configuration settings for the two applications are integrated. Configuring a connection to a particular server only needs to be done once in order for the selected server to be continuously available to both programs.

Note: The installer includes preconfigured sessions named Cardinal and Corn.  Any sessions using these names that were created in an earlier version of SecureCRT + SecureFX will be overwritten. If you have customized sessions named Cardinal or Corn, you may want to rename them before installing SecureCRT + SecureFX.
