Release Notes
June, 2003


This file contains late-breaking information about this release of Attachmate UTS and T27 Terminal Viewers, and T27 Printer. UTS and T27 Terminal Viewers and T27 Printer provide browser-based access to host applications on Unisys 2200 Series (ClearPath IX) and Unisys A Series (ClearPath NX/LX) hosts.

Installation Notes

Installing Both HAS and myEXTRA! Presentation Services Together on UNIX

If you are installing both Host Access Server (HAS) and myEXTRA! Presentation Services, it is recommended that you install myEXTRA! Presentation Services first.

Note If you install HAS first, you will be prompted during the myEXTRA! Presentation Services install to overwrite certain files with older ones. Do not replace these files with older versions. Doing so will cause T27 and UTS Terminal Viewers and T27 Printer to stop functioning.

Known Issues

Using MCS Security Services with Netscape Communicator

Clients that use Netscape Communicator v. 6.x cannot connect to the host using Management & Control Services (MCS) Security Services.

In addition, clients that use Netscape Communicator v. 4.x can run only one secure session at a time. If you close the session, you must close the browser before reopening the session.

Using MCS Security Services with Sun JRE v. 1.3.0

If the clients use Sun Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) v. 1.3.0 with a secure viewer or printer applet that uses Sun JRE, the session will time out within ten minutes. To avoid this problem, have the clients upgrade to Sun JRE v. 1.3.1_02.

Closing Sessions that Use MCS Security Services

If you're using MCS Security Services, and the viewer or printer applet appears in a secondary window, you must close the viewer or printer applet window before you close the browser to end the session. If you close the browser without first closing the viewer or printer applet window, the connection with the host remains open until it times out.

Embedding a Viewer

You must use Presentation Integrator to embed a viewer or printer applet within a Web page. By default, all viewers and printer applets appear in a secondary window.

Changing the Font Size in an Embedded Viewer

If you change the font size for an embedded viewer using Presentation Integrator, you must also adjust the height and width of the viewer based on the font size and font face (for instance, 12-pt. Courier is not exactly the same size as 12-pt. Times New Roman). If you do not adjust the height and width, a gray area might appear around the viewer.

Printing from an Embedded Viewer

When you print from an embedded viewer's File menu, the browser, rather than the viewer, controls print job settings such as color conversion and margins. Because various browsers and versions of those browsers handle print job settings differently, the resulting print job may not use the settings you expect. To use the viewer settings when you print (to print directly from the viewer applet), right-click the viewer window and then select Print.

Setting the Column Width for an Embedded T27 Viewer

If you're using an embedded T27 Terminal Viewer with 132 columns, it is recommended that you set the width to 1000. When the width is set to this value, a scroll bar appears so that you can see the additional columns.

T27 Terminal Viewer Control Mode Keystrokes

The following control mode keystrokes are not supported:

    CTRL >
    CTRL :
    CTRL ?
    CTRL < C R
    CTRL @ xx yy
    CTRL n
    CTRL Space m
    CTRL ]
    CTRL ;
    CTRL Space d

Initiating T27 Printer Jobs with Security Services

If you're using Security Services with T27 Printer, and the command that initiates a host print job includes an IP address, you must use the IP address of the MCS server on which Security Services resides rather than the IP address of the client.

Printer Prompts with T27 Printer and Netscape Communicator

When T27 Printer is configured to send the data to a printer rather than a file, clients that use Netscape Communicator will always be prompted to specify which printer to use, no matter how the printer applet is configured.

FCC Information Doesn't Appear in UTS Terminal Viewer

When you generate an FCC using UTS Terminal Viewer, information related to that process does not appear at the bottom of the screen.

STEPDOS Keyboard Map

The STEPDOS keyboard map included with UTS Terminal Viewer is not documented in the Help.

Changing the Remote Port for an e-Vantage Gateway Connection

If you are using an e-Vantage Gateway connection, and you change the Remote Port, you must also change the local port in the client path on the gateway. However, you cannot change the local port number using the e-Vantage Gateway Connection Manager -- you must modify the client path using INFOConnect Manager, and change the local port from NTGATE to Other by typing the desired value.

Remapping the CTRL Key

You cannot remap the CTRL key, although it does not appear in red on the Keyboard Remapper Settings page.

Euro Symbol Support

By default, the euro symbol (€) is mapped to CTRL+SHIFT+e for all the viewers, but the key combinations on European keyboards for the euro (such as ALT GR+e and ALT GR+4) also work.

To use the euro symbol, you must use a translation table that supports it. In addition, for T27 Terminal Viewer, you must select the Raw 8-bit Data option on the Char Interpretation page in the Display properties. For more information about translation tables, refer the Help for Terminal Viewers after installation.
