Connection Settings - UTS General Page

From the UTS General page, you can configure access to an OS 2200 host.

Use ID Management: Select this option to obtain a terminal ID from MCS. If you clear this option, you must specify a terminal ID.

Note If you use ID management, when you create the pool in MCS, under Pool Type, select Named. You'll need to assign an ID to that pool before you can establish a connection with the host and create an application. To ensure that ID pools function correctly, each pool should contain IDs for only one Unisys host type.

For UTS sessions, you can configure the host to use a PID pool rather than using ID management. For more information, contact your host administrator.

Terminal ID: Type the terminal identifier (up to 6 characters) to use with this configuration. Allowable characters are A-Z and 0-9, not case sensitive. You can type a terminal ID only if Use ID Management is cleared.

Each terminal ID should be unique within the entire network. The terminal ID is also known as a TID.

Pool Name: If you selected Use ID Management, type the name of the named pool from which to obtain an ID. If you cleared Use ID Management, this option is ignored.

MCS Server Address: If you selected Use ID Management, type the IP address or name of the server where MCS is installed. If you cleared Use ID Management, this option is ignored.

Destructive Space: Select this option to delete the character at the cursor location when you press the SPACEBAR. If you clear this option, pressing the SPACEBAR moves the cursor one column to the right without deleting any characters.

Upper Case Only: Select this option to display only uppercase characters in the session window. If you clear this option, both lowercase and uppercase characters are displayed.

Environment: Select the environment to use. The environment determines which host application to access and which connection to use to access the host. If you have not yet configured an environment, select the Environment tab and do so before continuing.

Device Type: Select the type of terminal to emulate when a session with the host is established (UTS20, UTS40, or UTS60).
