Telnet HP Terminal Type
This setting determines the following terminal characteristics:
When Host Integrator connects to a Telnet host, the Telnet protocol negotiates a Telnet terminal type with the host. In general, this negotiation will result in the correct terminal type.
- Which screen control sequences the host sends to Host Integrator to format the screen.
- The position of the cursor.
- What characters to display in a host application.
If you are having trouble running a host application, the negotiation between
Telnet and the host might be wrong. To override Host Integrator's selection of
a terminal, select a terminal type from the list (because this list box is editable,
you can just type in any value). If you enter a terminal type that the host does
not recognize, Host Integrator reverts to a list of default values until one is
found that the host supports. The default Terminal type values are HP and HP2392A.
If you enter a terminal ID string, it may be up to 40 characters long taken from
a set of uppercase letters, digits, and the two punctuation characters, hyphen
and slash. It must start with a letter and end with a letter or digit.
