Can change value if connection is open?

No

 

Description

Reflection supports line mode and faux line mode for Telnet connections. Line mode allows Reflection to store characters in a buffer until a carriage return is entered, upon which the characters are sent to the host one packet at a time (instead of sending each single character as an individual packet).

Line mode is useful for long network delays, and allows you to reduce costs on networks that charge on a per packet basis.

Values

The default value is Never.

The possible values are Never (don't use line mode), RFC (use when you are connected to a host that supports line mode to have line mode negotiated during a connection), Echo (use line mode when the host tells Reflection to do the echoing), SGA (use line mode when the host does not Suppress Go Ahead), EchoSGA (use line mode for Echo or SGA), and Always (always use line mode). All options other than RFC are know as "faux" line mode.

Example

Session.ConnectionSettings = "TelnetLinemode Always"
