This setting determines the following terminal characteristics:
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.
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
