Network Connection Type

Telnet

Select to use your PC as a virtual terminal over a TCP/IP connection.

When Telnet is the selected protocol, you can configure secure connections using Kerberos or SSL/TLS.

Secure Shell

Select for secure, encrypted communications between a trusted host and your PC over an insecure network. When you select Secure Shell, all connections between your PC and the remote host(s) are encrypted, protecting the data sent between these machines.

Rlogin

Select to use your PC as a virtual terminal over a TCP/IP connection.

Connection Options

Host name/IP address

Identify the host to which you will connect. Type the host name, alias, or numeric IP address.

Note: Both IPv4 addresses (in the form 127.0.0.1) and IPv6 addresses (in the form 2001:0db8:3c4d:0015:0000:0000:abcd:ef12) are accepted.

 

User name

Type a name that identifies you or your PC to the host.

This option is enabled only for Secure Shell or Rlogin connections.

SSH configuration scheme

Type a descriptive name to label these connection settings, making them available for use with other sessions.

If you leave this field blank, and make changes to any connection settings, Reflection saves the configuration scheme using the value from the Host name/IP address field.

Security

Secure data communications with Kerberos, Secure Shell, SOCKS, or SSL/TLS.

More Settings

Configure additional settings.

Serial Port

These options are available only when you have selected Serial Port under Connection Method.

Serial port to use

Reflection detects available serial ports on your PC and displays them here.

Parity

Set the parity for data transmission to and from the serial device on this port.

This setting determines whether a parity bit is generated for each character transmitted. Parity is used to detect errors in data transmission; the number preceding the slash indicates the number of data bits sent.

To use the multinational character set or 8-bit controls, Parity must be set to one of the values that offers 8-bit controls. If your communications link generates parity, and you set Parity to 8/None, multinational characters appear on your screen. In this case, set Parity to either 8/Even or 8/Odd.

Baud

Set the rate at which Reflection transmits and receives data through the selected serial port.

The baud rate setting must match the baud rate of your direct connection.
