3270 Terminal Document Settings Dialog Box

Getting there

Connection

Enter Host (or System) Name or 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.

Port

Type the host port or socket number that the session should use. This field accepts any number between 0 and 66,535 (default = 23).

Device name

Specify a particular LU or pool of LUs (up to 32 characters) on the host. If no device name is entered, the server connects to any available LU at the specified port.

Use Telnet Extended

If selected, enables TN3270E protocols when supported.

Terminal

Terminal/Device type

Specify the model of the terminal or device type emulated by this session.

You can select a value from the drop-down box, or type a value that is not listed. This allows you to specify a terminal model that is not implicitly supported but might work, such as Fujitsu.

In most cases you should leave this setting at the default value. If you choose any other value, be sure to use a string that is acceptable to the host; otherwise, you may experience problems connecting to the host, and emulation problems after connecting to the host. Typically, these types of problems occur if the host is not configured to recognize the terminal specified.

Model ID

Specify the model of the terminal or device type emulated by this session.

If the string specified in Terminal/Device type includes &M, the &M is replaced with the model number from this list when the string is sent to the host. For example, if IBM-3279-&M is specified and Model 3 is selected here, the string sent to the host is IBM-3279-3.

Selecting an Extended model allows the host to specify a greater number of colors (seven instead of four) and a wider variety of display attributes. Any Model allows the gateway or mainframe to determine which model ID to use.

Each model is associated with a terminal window display of a specific size (e.g., 24 rows by 80 columns). To specify a different number of rows or columns, select <Custom Model Extended>. When Model ID is set to <Custom Model Extended>, Terminal/Device type changes to IBM-DYNAMIC.

The default value is Model 2 24x80 Extended.

Rows

The number of rows to use in the terminal window display. The valid range is 24 - 255.

If the host application specifies a particular screen size, this value may be ignored.

Columns

The number of columns to use in the terminal window display. The valid range is 80 - 255.

If the host application specifies a particular screen size, this value may be ignored.

Enable graphics

When selected, enables this session to emulate a graphics terminal.

This allows you to run any host application that uses the IBM Graphics Data Display Manager (GDDM) library, such as SAS or ImageView.

Host code page

Select the language and associated host code page to be used by your session. If you are not sure which language and code page to use, check with your system administrator. The default is US English, code page 037.

Keyboard map

Specify the keyboard map to use with this session.

Configure additional settings

Select to open a page from which you can customize host connection, terminal configuration, and other settings for this session.

When selected, the session does not auto-connect. This allows you to modify settings before connecting to the session.
