Telnet VT 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.

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 VT52, VT100, VT220, VT320, and VT420. 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.
