How to configure Cisco VIRL – VMMaestro to use SecureCRT as an external telnet and SSH Client?

Cisco VIRL comes with an internal SSH and Telnet client which is quite good and it opens all the SSH and telnet sessions within VMMaestro GUI, but if someone wants to use Secure CRT on  their MAC as an external client, one can easily configure the changes in VIRL VMMaestro,

VMMaestro-1

Terminal>Cisco Terminal

Step 1

Change the title format to : %s

Step 2

Select : Use external terminal applications

Step3

Use the following fields show below

Telnet command:/Applications/SecureCRT.app/contents/MacOS/SecureCRT
Telnet arguments:/T /N %t /TELNET %h %p
SSH Command:/Applications/SecureCRT.app/contents/MacOS/SecureCRT
SSH arguments:/T /N %t /TELNET %h %p
VMMaestro-2

By doing these minor changes you can use Secure CRT to SSH or Telnet VIRL Devices
