Background color for Cisco devices
For Cisco devices I use most of the time the color scheme called Traditional with the font called DejaVu Sans, the following screenshots will show you how to select that color scheme.
Background color for Linux CentOS
We are really lucky to already have on SecureCRT the correct Terminal Emulation for Linux, and once you select it from the list, the color scheme will be automatically set and ready for you to enjoy, the following screenshots will guide you to configure the right Terminal Emulation.
