Introduction
This terminal features a small footprint logic controller and monitor that can emulate a number of ASCII and
ANSI terminals, including IBM 3151, PC-Term and SCO™ Console. The keyboards supported by the terminal are
the PC 104-key and the ANSI keyboards. The dual host capability of the terminal allows you to run two different
applications simultaneously. A Setup option is available to view each “session” in the screen in a split or full
screen display.
Clock, calendar, calculator, ASCII chart, and diagnostic desk accessories are provided. Another feature is the
selectable overscan border which can provide bezel to bezel video.
This terminal also features an easy-to-use Setup menu that is configuration dependent; this means that only the
options that are valid for a given emulation or hardware configuration are presented.
Setup also has a “Quick” menu that summarizes all the options critical to the operation of the terminal. Travel
between menus is facilitated by function keys that are listed at the top of every menu.
Split screen is not available if one of the sessions is selected as IBM 3151 emulation.

Communications
This terminal is equipped with three communications ports. The two serial ports are intended for connection to
either a host (or modem), an alternate input device such as a scanner, or a serial printer. (The EIA port has both
an RJ45 and a DB25 interface; either, but not both, can be used.) The last port is a Centronics-compatible
printer port which could be used with a parallel printer or other output device (such as a cash drawer) connected
to a parallel interface. The port you use as the printer port depends on whether you have a serial or a parallel
interface to the printer. Another factor affecting your port selection is whether the terminal is being used in a
single or dual host environment.
Either “EIA” serial port (DB25 or RJ45) can communicate with your computer or printer at a baud rate of 110 to
115,200 baud (bits per second). The second host/printer serial “Aux” port can communicate at speeds from 110
baud to 38,400 baud. Any of these ports can be used to connect to a host computer/modem or serial printer.
Receive Flow Control
Because devices can receive data faster than they can process it, data flow control (selectable in the PORTS
menu of Setup) should be used to prevent data loss. Software flow control relies on the Xon and Xoff characters
(“g” and “e” characters in PC-Term mode) to indicate when the terminal is able or unable to store further data.
The Xon signal transmits the DC1 character (11h) and the Xoff signal transmits DC3 (13h).
This terminal has a receive buffer capable of holding 256 bytes (or characters). When the buffer becomes half full
(128 bytes), and “EIA (or Aux) Rcv” in the Setup menu for PORTS is “Xon-Xoff,” the terminal issues an Xoff
character, indicating to the host that it should stop transmitting data. The terminal will then continue to process
data until its receive buffer holds only 32 bytes. It will then issue an Xon character to the host, indicating that it
can resume sending data to the terminal.
If the “EIA (or Aux) Rcv” is “No Protocol” in Setup, the terminal will continue to accept characters into its
receive buffer until it is full. Additional characters will be lost. Xon-Xoff protocol must also be set on the host
computer or printer for proper handshaking.
In addition to software “receive” flow control (Xon-Xoff), the serial host/printer ports support “receive” hardware
flow control. The EIA ports have an outgoing DTR (Data Terminal Ready) signal. If the DTR signal on the
terminal is low and “EIA Recv” is “DTR” in Setup, then the serial device will stop sending to the terminal. On the
AUX port, the incoming DSR (Data Set Ready) signal serves to signal the device that the terminal is not ready to
receive more data, if “Aux Recv” is “DSR” in Setup.
Transmit Flow Control
Likewise, the terminal will understand the Xon and Xoff requests from the host when it is transmitting data
(provided the “EIA (or Aux) Xmt” is “Xon-Xoff” in Setup). This is referred to as “transmit” flow control.
This terminal will stop transmitting data to the host or printer when it receives an Xoff (DC3) code. If, however,
the terminal needs to send a receive protocol character, it will transmit that character even if it has received an
Xoff code. When the terminal stops transmitting, the data will be buffered in the transmit buffer (64 characters
for the first host/printer port and 64 characters for the second host/printer port).
Once the buffer is full, additional keyboard data will be lost. When an Xon (DC1) character is received, the
terminal can again send data to the attached serial device.
In addition to software “transmit” flow control (Xon-Xoff), the serial host/printer ports support “transmit”
hardware flow control, whereby DSR on the EIA port and DTR on the AUX port monitor serial devices to control
the flow of data to them (provided EIA and AUX Xmit is “DSR” and “DTR” in Setup).
For parallel printers, this terminal monitors the BUSY and ERROR signals which are sent by the printer to
determine when data transmission should be stopped or resumed.
Host/Printer Port 1 (DB25)
This port, labeled “EIA,” located to the left of the video port, is designed for connection to the host (computer or
modem) or a serial printer via a 25-pin D-shell (DB25P) female connector. This port uses an RS-232-C
communication interface, is configured as a DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) device, and can operate from 110 to
115,200 baud. The pins supported are shown below.
9
Refer to the Installation chapter for details on the connection of the DB25 EIA port or the RJ45 EIA port to
serial devices (hosts, modems, or printers).
The optional RS-422 and current loop communications interface is only available for this DB25 EIA port.
Host/Printer Port 1 (RJ45)
This port, labeled “EIA,” located to the right of the “Aux” port, is designed to connect to a host (computer or
modem) or a serial printer and can operate from 110 to 115,200 baud. This port also uses an RS-232-C interface
via an RJ45 female connector and is configured as a DTE device.
Video Port (DB15)
The port labeled “Video” is designed to connect to the VGA monochrome or color monitor. The
interface is a 15-pin, D-shell female connector. The pin assignments for this port are shown below.
Keyboard Ports (Mini-din or RJ11)
There are two keyboard connector ports provided. Only one keyboard should be connected at one time. The PC
101-key and ANSI keyboards will connect to the RJ11 or the mini-din interface, depending on the type of cable
used. The Compact PC 101-key keyboard will connect to the mini-din port.
10
Host/Printer Port 2
This port, labeled “Aux,” is designed to connect to a second host connection (computer or modem), a scanner or
other input device, or a serial printer, and can operate from 110 to 38,400 baud. This port also uses an RS-232C interface via an RJ45 female connector and is configured as a DCE device.
Parallel Printer Port
This port, labeled “Parallel” is designed for connection to a parallel printer, which has a Centronics interface with
a 25-pin D-shell female connector. This port, unlike the others, is a uni-directional device, which means that it
only serves to output data to the printer, and cannot receive. The pins and signals supported are shown below.
If you have opted to use a parallel printer, but it is not connected, an error message will appear on the status
line when any PRINT operation is done. To clear the message, press Ctrl-Shift-Tab.
11
Terminal To Modem (or DCE Host)
Refer to the diagram below to understand why a null modem adapter may be needed when connecting the AUX
serial port to a modem or a DCE host. The EIA port will connect directly without a null modem since it is a DTE
device.
Terminal To Host (DTE) OR Printer
Refer to the diagram below to understand why a null modem adapter may be needed when connecting the EIA
serial port to a serial printer or a host port without a modem (most hosts and serial printers are DTE devices).
The AUX port will connect directly without a null modem since it is a DCE device.
12
Screen Display And Pages
This terminal offers a variety of screen lengths including 26, 30, 44 or 52 lines. These numbers include the top
and bottom status lines (or label line), as well as the lines used to display data. A “page” of terminal memory
represents the total number of lines that can be accessed, whether or not they are all viewable on the screen at
once. Refer to Appendix A for the number and lengths of pages available for your set-up.
The page length is comprised of a base page length multiplied by 1,2,4 or 8. For instance, in certain modes, 24
(24*1), 48 (24 x 2), and 96 (24 x 4) are available, the same way that 25(25 x 1), 50 (25 x 2), and 100 (25 x 4) are.
The base page length and the screen size determine whether a bottom status line or label line is displayed or not.
Bottom Status/Label Line Display
With a screen length of “26 lines,” the page lengths that are multiples of 24 allow the bottom status/label line to
be displayed, while those that are multiples of 25 do not. The same idea applies with the 44 line screen size. A
page length with 42 lines as a base page size will display a label line, while the 43 line base page length will not.
An exception to this rule is if the screen length is significantly larger than the base page size, then the label line
will be displayed, such as if the screen is 44 lines and the page length is a multiple of 25.
The figure below represents the entire page memory of a 48 line page (24 base page length times a multiplier of
2) and the portion of the page that is viewable on the display screen, when “26 Lines” is selected. Notice that the
label line is visible in this mode.
13
Viewports
Up to three viewports can be selected on a page. Each viewport has its own character attribute, cursor
position, field attribute propagation, tab stops and scrolling region. All of the viewports are displayed on the
same screen and can be partitioned with a visual separator line. If the keyboard is associated with one viewport
and the host is associated with another, it is possible to receive data in two viewports simultaneously. The figure
below represents the entire page memory of a 48 line page (24 base page length times a multiplier of 2) and the
portion of the page that is viewable on the display screen, when “26 Lines” is selected. Notice that the label line
is visible in this mode.
Visual Effects Of Screen And Page Lengths
The combination of page and screen lengths influence the number of displayable data lines. For example, if the
page length is “50" (25 x 2), and the screen length is 44 lines, the number of data lines that are visible at any
one time is 43, with no label line. The other line is used for the top status line. On a 52 line screen, 50 of the 52
data lines are visible at one time.
If the page length is shorter than the screen length, then blank lines will be present below the data line or
status/label line. If the page length is larger than the allowable number of data lines, this will cause some of the
rows to be out of view. In order to bring them into view, “scrolling” or “panning” is used, as necessary. Scrolling
causes a new line to scroll into view when the cursor advances past the last row or first row on the page. If the
page is scrolled down, the top row of text is lost, and if scrolled up, the bottom row of text is lost (if Auto Scroll is
“on” in Setup). Text scrolled off of the screen is not recoverable.
If the current page or portion of the page is longer than the screen display or window in which it is displayed,
then local keystrokes can be used to “pan” the window up or down (Ctrl-ì and Ctrl-Å ). As a window is panned
up, the page appears to be moving down and the opposite is true when panning the window down. Text that is
panned off the screen is out of view, but is not lost.
The figure below represents the display screen with a 48 line page length on a 44 line screen, after panning the
window down 2 lines.

Installation
This section provides a “walk-through” approach to the installation of your terminal. This will enable you to
physically connect the terminal to a printer, one or two host computers/modems, scanner or another input
device. If necessary, you will also be able to configure the Setup menu to suit your requirements and
preferences.
The terminal is designed to provide great configuration flexibility. An example of this flexibility is that either the
EIA or Aux port can be used to connect either to a host, another input device, or a printer. In addition, a
physical port can be assigned as the Host in one session and as a Printer in the other session, if desired. In
another case, data can potentially be “printed” from one session to the other. Data can be directed to the host
through multiple ports, which applies when both a bar code reader and a host are attached.
The procedures described here are among the most common: conventional single and dual host setups, with or
without a printer. These steps may need to be modified to meet your requirements.
Step 1 - Physical Connections
The first step in our installation process will be to physically connect your devices to the terminal. Depending on
the types of serial interfaces of your devices, you may need one or more “null modem” adapters to communicate
properly.
First, refer to the Common Set-Up diagrams on page 20. If one of these setups matches your needs, then make
the connections as shown in the diagrams by referring to the Host/Printer Connection Guide on page 18.
Otherwise, choose the connections in the Host/Printer Connection Guide that are appropriate.
The Common Set-Up diagrams on page 20 show some examples of how various devices may be connected.
Step 2 - Number Of Sessions
This step requires setting a selection in the Setup menu to configure the terminal for single or dual session
mode.
If you’ve connected two host cables (steps 9A or 9C and 9B or 9D), and you wish to run in “dual session” mode,
enter Setup and set “Sessions=Two” in the Quick (F1) menu. For single host operation, this setting should
already be set at “One” since this is in the default state.
Step 3 - Link Ports To Sessions
If you have selected “Sessions”=One, then you can skip to Step 4. If you have selected “Sessions”=Two, there are
four designations to make. This step will be used later in Step 7.
First, you have to decide which serial port will be assigned to your first host in Session 1 (either EIA, Aux, or
None). Now, decide which port will be used for your second host in Session 2 (EIA, Aux, or None). The same port
shouldn’t be used as the host port for both sessions. Also, both EIA ports cannot be used at the same
time, or data loss may occur. Similarly, both keyboard ports cannot be used at the same time. Then,
determine which port will be used as the printer port in Session 1 (EIA, Aux, Parallel, None). Do the same for the
printer option in Session 2. It is not general practice to assign the host port in one session as the printer port in
another session, but this can be done if desired.
15
To access the Setup menu, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock on a PC-style keyboard or F3 on an ANSI Keyboard.
Step 4 - No Printer Option
If you did not opt to install a printer (do not complete steps 9E, 9F, 9G, or 9H), you must set the Printer portion
of the Host/Printer selection in the Quick (F1) Setup menu to “None.” Choose the combination of Host/Printer
that properly represents which terminal port you are connecting the host to, and “None” as the printer.
For example, if the EIA port is connected to the host or modem, the setting would be “EIA/None.” If you are
running in dual session mode, press Ctrl-Enter (kpd). Now, set the Printer portion of Host/Printer to “None” in
Session 2, preserving the current Host setting.
Step 5 - Determine Your Serial Port(s) Protocol
Consult your system administrator to find out the communication settings on all the serial devices you’ve
connected to, including EIA (or Aux) baud, data bits, stop bits, parity, parity checking on/off, Xmt & Rcv flow
control protocol. This could include one or two hosts/modems, a scanner, a serial printer, etc. Record this
information on the User Settings chart on page 21 for reference in Step 9.
Step 6 - Alternate Input Data Setup Selection
In single session mode only, this terminal has the option to receive data from the non-host serial port and will
send the data to the host port. By default, this feature will be enabled. In Setup, “Alt Input Data” = “On” in the
Host (F7) menu.
To disable this option, select “Off” for this parameter. If you are using a serial printer, this option is not
available.
Step 7 - Host/Printer Setup Selection
Recall the port/session designations made in Step 3. Now, enter the Setup menu (Ctrl-Scroll Lock) and set the
“Host/Printer” selection in the Quick (F1) menu to the proper host and printer ports for session one. If an
alternate input device is being connected (such as a scanner), the non-host serial port will be used as the second
input port in the session (See Step 6).
If you are running in dual session mode, press Ctrl-Enter (kpd), and set the “Host/Printer” selection in the Quick
(F1) menu to the proper host and printer ports for Session two.
Only one session can access the parallel printer at one time. If a print mode (Aux on, etc.) is on in both
sessions, an error message will appear. To disable a print mode in a session, press Shift-Scroll Lock.
Step 8 - Modem Control Setup Selection
If you are using a modem on either serial communications port, enter Setup and set the “(EIA) Aux Modem
Control” parameter to “On” for the port(s) to ensure that proper handshaking occurs.
Step 9 - Communications Protocol Settings
Recall the information recorded in Step 5 of this Installation procedure. In the Ports (F6) menu, set the proper
communications settings for the ports that you are using. These parameters include (EIA and/or Aux) Baud,
Data Format, Parity Check, Recv, Xmt. See the Setup chapter for more information on the individual settings.
Now recall the letters next to the connections that you made in Step 1. Also, you must be aware of the
port/session designations made in Step 3.
The procedures below correspond directly to the individual connections made. Notice that only certain
connection procedures are to be followed, not all of them. For example, if you have made connections “9C” and
“9F”, to a modem and a serial printer, then follow only connection procedures “9C” and “9F” below.
Follow only those steps that apply to your connections (9A - 9H).
To access the Setup menu, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock on PC-style keyboards, and F3 on ANSI-style keyboards.

Connection A - DTE Host On EIA
1.
Enter the Setup menu. If the EIA port is to be assigned to Session 1, go to step 2. Otherwise, switch sessions
by pressing Ctrl-Enter on the numeric keypad.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Host portion of the “Host/Printer” selection to EIA, without changing
the current Printer option (“EIA/xxxx”). The Printer will be set in another connection procedure if needed.
3.
In the Ports (F6) menu, set the proper communications settings for the EIA Baud, EIA Data Format, EIA
Parity Check, EIA Recv, and EIA Xmt selections. See the Setup chapter for more detailed information on the
individual settings.
Connection B - DTE Host On Aux
1.
Enter the Setup menu. If the AUX port is to be assigned to Session 2, then switch sessions (by pressing CtrlEnter on the numeric keypad). Remain in session 1, if it is to be assigned to that session.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Host portion of the “Host/Printer selection to Aux, without changing
the current Printer option (”Aux/xxxx“). The Printer will be set in another connection procedure if needed.
3.
In the Ports (F6) menu, set the proper communications settings for the “Aux Baud”, “Aux Data Format”, “Aux
Parity Check”, “Aux Recv”, and “Aux Xmt.” See the Setup chapter for more information on the individual
settings.
Connection C - DCE Host/Modem On EIA
1.
Follow procedure described in Connection A.
2.
If you are connecting to a modem, the Ports (F6) menu, set the “EIA Modem Control” parameter to On.
Connection D - DCE Host/Modem On Aux
1.
Follow procedure described in Connection B.
2.
If you are connecting to a modem, in the Ports (F6) menu, set the “Aux Modem Control” parameter to On.
Connection E - Serial Printer On EIA
1.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the “Host/Printer” selection to EIA, without changing
the current Host option (“xxxx/EIA”). The Host will be set in another connection procedure if needed.
2.
Follow procedure described in step 3 of connection A.
Connection F - Serial Printer On Aux
1.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the “Host/Printer” selection to Aux, without
changing the current Host option (“xxxx/Aux”). The Host will be set in another connection procedure if
needed.
2.
Follow procedure described in step 3 of Connection B.
Connections G & H - Serial Or Parallel Printer On Parallel
1.
Enter the Setup menu. If the parallel port to be assigned to Session 2, then switch sessions (by pressing CtrlEnter on the numeric keypad). Remain in session 1, if it is to be assigned to that session.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the “Host/Printer” selection to Para, without
changing the current Host option (“xxxx/Para”).
3.
Repeat this procedure if the parallel port is going to be used to print from both sessions.
Only one session can access the parallel printer at one time. If a print mode (Aux on, etc.) is On in both
sessions, an error message will appear. To disable a print mode in a session, press Shift-Scroll Lock on PC-style
keyboards, and Shift-F3 on ANSI-style keyboards.
Step 10 - Emulation Setup Selection
This step requires setting a selection in the Setup menu to configure the “Emulation” for one or two sessions of
the terminal. Determine which emulations your applications run with.
Enter the Setup menu and set the “Emulation” parameter, in the Quick (F1) menu, to match your requirements.
If you are running in dual session mode, press Ctrl-Enter (num). Now, set the “Emulation” parameter in Session 2.
Step 11 - Additional Setup Options
At this point, you should proceed to the Setup chapter and continue to set up your own selections for any other
parameters such as those for the display, keyboard, function/edit keys and tabs.
Remember to repeat this procedure for Session 2 if you are running in dual session mode. Use Ctrl-Enter (num) to
access this set of parameters.
17
Step 12 - Save Parameters
Finally, remember to save your Setup parameters in permanent memory, so that they can be recovered if the
terminal is powered down. When you exit the Setup menu, the prompt “Save all? (Y/N)” flashes. To save
parameters, press “Y.” Another way to save parameters is to perform a “Save Terminal” operation, while in the
Exec (Prt Sc) menu of Setup. Both methods will save the parameters in both sessions, as well as those that are
common to both.
Remember to save your Setup settings after the entire
installation process.
Step 13 - Establish Communications
1.
Your installation is now complete. By pressing the Return or Enter key, you should be able to communicate
with the host computer(s). The printer should respond to the local print command, Shift-Ctrl-. (period on
numeric keypad); use the period on the numeric keypad.
2.
If for some reason, your installation was not successful, make sure your physical connections are secure,
that the communications protocol settings match your devices and that the Setup selections are chosen to
provide a proper interface between the terminal and your devices.
3.
If you continue to have problems installing the terminal, call your local dealer for technical support.

Setup
The Setup menu is your control panel for this terminal. It permits you to configure the terminal to communicate
with the host computer as well as to suit your personal preferences.
Overview
The Setup menus have been designed to allow maximum flexibility with a minimum investment of time. Thirteen
menus provide you with the flexibility and the features below contribute to ease of use:
ƒ
The Quick menu is the first screen upon entry. It contains the parameters critical to the operation of the
terminal with the host.
ƒ
Function keys permit easy access to any menu. The function keys are labeled at the top of every menu.
ƒ
Setup is “smart.” That is, it provides only the options that are valid for the hardware and current emulation.
ƒ
Keystrokes and Help Messages are at the bottom of every menu.
ƒ
Valid choices for the selected parameter are displayed at the bottom of the menu.
Entry And Exit
PC Style Keyboard:
ƒ
Press Ctrl-Scroll Lock to both enter and exit setup. Also, press ESC or Pause key to exit.
IBM 3151 emulation: Press Ctrl-Setup to both enter and exit setup.
ANSI Keyboard:
ƒ
To enter, press F3 (when Setup selection “F1 to F5 keys” = Local)
ƒ
To enter, press Ctrl-F3 (when Setup selection “F1 to F5 keys” = Fkey)
ƒ
To enter, press Ctrl-Select (when Setup selection “Key Mode” = Scan Code)
ƒ
To exit, press Ctrl-Select twice (when n Setup selection “Key Mode” = Scan Code and “local Leadin” = On).
ƒ
To exit, press F14.
Printing
To print the settings of the Setup menu, press Ctrl-shift-. (period on the numeric keypad). The output of this print
command is directed to the port specified by the “Host/Printer” selection in the Quick (F1) menu. If the “Printer”
portion of this parameter is set to None, the output is forwarded to the parallel port.
Saving Parameters
Upon exiting setup mode, the prompt “Save All (Y/N)” blinks.
ƒ
Press Y or y to exit setup and save settings in permanent (nonvolatile) RAM.
ƒ
Press C or c to cancel the exit request.
ƒ
Press N or n to exit setup. The changes will take effect, but will be lost if the terminal is reset or powered off.
Setup
23
An exception to this is function/edit key and answerback message programming. Once edited in Setup, the
changes are saved regardless of the way in which you exit Setup.
Movement Inside Menus
F1 through F12 - Select the menu that corresponds to the function key. Access to the “EXEC” menu is available
using either the Print (PC-style keyboards) or F13 (ANSI keyboard) key. The keys are labeled at the top of each
menu.
Cursor control keys ( ↑←↓→) - These keys control movement to parameters within the menu and is indicated by a
highlighted selection bar. This selection bar will wrap to the other side of the menu at the top, bottom and side
boundaries. For each parameter, there are at least two choices. As the parameter is highlighted, the available
choices appear in the area above the help bar.
Some parameters are action fields and have no choices. See the Action Fields section later in the chapter.
ƒ
Enter and Shift-Enter - Cycle “up” or “down” through the choices for a given parameter.
The following keystrokes are also available but are not documented in the Setup help bar.
ƒ
Tab and Shift-Tab - Move from menu to menu forward or backward without using function keys.
ƒ
Space and Shift-Space - Cycle through the list of choices. Same as Enter and Shift-Enter.
Parameters are changed and executed as soon as that field is exited. Page resets may occur when certain
choices are made in Setup, and the screen will temporarily become blank while the terminal processes.
Action Fields
Certain parameters are not selections but action fields. When the action field is highlighted and then selected,
the action is taken. A “WAIT” message may appear at the top right portion of the screen, and when the action is
completed, a “DONE” message will appear. These messages are cleared when the selection bar is placed on
another parameter.
Dual Session Mode
There are two “sets” of “session” setup parameters, if you are using the terminal in dual session mode. To toggle
between sessions while in or out of setup mode, press Ctrl-Enter (num). For a complete explanation of sessiondependent and terminal-dependent parameters, see the Glossary of Terms section at the end of this chapter.

Sessions: [One, Two]
Select the number of sessions that the terminal will run. One session is required per connection to a host. When
two sessions are selected, the Setup menu will display the message “Press Ctrl-Enter Kpd to Toggle Sessions” at
the bottom of the screen. The current session is displayed at the upper left corner of the status line (either by a
SES1 or SES2 indicator). To change the active session, press Ctrl and Enter on the numeric keypad
simultaneously.
Host/Printer: [EIA/Aux, EIA/Para, EIA/None, Aux/EIA, Aux/Para, Aux/None, None/EIA, None/Aux, None/Para, None/None]
The first part of the selection indicates the host (either the EIA port or the AUX port) and the second part of the
selection indicates the printer port (if a serial printer is used, either the EIA or Aux port can be used to connect
to the printer, but if a parallel printer is being used, the PAR port should be used.) The active session “drives”
the printer. EIA/Para is the default for Session 1, and Aux/None is the default for session 2.
Setup

General: F2
This chapter lists all possible parameters for each menu, and all possible choices for each parameter.
Depending on the emulation selected, the keyboard type, and the key mode (ASCII or ScanCode), Setup will
only present the valid set of parameters and choices in each menu.
Emulation: select the “personality” of the terminal. See the Quick menu on page 26.
Enhanced: Choose whether the terminal can respond to commands beyond the limitations of the current
emulation. See the Quick menu on page 26.
Auto Wrap: [On, Off]
Select whether the cursor drops to the next line when it reaches the right margin or continues to display
characters at the right margin. In ANSI emulations, the default is off.
Auto Font Load: [On, Off]
S select whether the four font banks (0-3) should automatically be loaded when screen size or the emulation is
changed.
Auto Page: [On, Off]
When the cursor is moved off the page using a command that includes scroll and Auto Page mode is on, the
screen displays the new page. These pages are numbered from 0 to a maximum of 3. When on, Auto Page will
track the page even if Auto Scroll is off. The up-arrow key does not have a scroll command embedded, so it
cannot be used to view the previous page even when Auto Page is on.
Auto Scroll: [On, Off]
Choose whether the terminal updates the display when the cursor is moved beyond the boundaries of the
currently viewed screen.
Monitor Mode: [On, Off]
Choose whether control codes will be displayed as their graphic representations or be acted upon as
terminal/cursor commands.
Screen Saver: [Off, 2 min, 5 min, 15 min, 30 min]
Select whether the screen will go blank after lack of activity from the keyboard or the host of the selected period
of time. The first key typed at the keyboard when the screen is blank will reactivate the display. The key code will
not be transmitted to the host. The Caps Lock LED will flash while Screen Saver is active.
Use screen saver to prevent “phosphor burn” on the screen when the display on the terminal is left unchanged
for an extended time period.
Bell Volume: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
Select the bell volume from of [0] to high [9]. This will be the volume for alarm tones, warning bells, and key
clicks.
Warning Bell: [On, Off]
Select whether a warning bell is sounded when errors (such as an invalid compose sequence) are encountered.
Sessions: [One, Two]
Select the number of sessions (hosts) that the terminal will run. See the Quick menu earlier in this chapter.
Session Display: [Full, Split]
When two sessions are used, select whether each host’s data displays on a full screen or if both hosts share a
split screen. In either case, the way to toggle between the hosts is by using Ctrl-Enter (num). Both hosts can receive
and update data simultaneously. The purpose of toggling is so that keyboard entry can be directed to the
selected host. In the case of a full display, toggling also brings the entire display of the selected host into view.
The selection above is not available in the IBM 3151 emulation.
Bell Length: [140 ms, 350 ms, 570 ms, 780 ms]
Denotes duration of bell sound.
Setup Lang: [US, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese]
Affects display of setup and the status lines.
Cursor Dir: [right to left, left to right]
This feature affects the direction in which the text is entered (defaults to right to left when Hebrew language is
chosen).
Setup
28
Display: F3
Page Length: [24, 25, 42, 43, 48, 50, 84, 86, 96, 100, (168), (172), (192), (200), *24, *25, *42, *43]
For the IBM 3151 emulation, page length choices are 24, 25, 28, 42, 43, 48, 50.
Select the number of lines per page. As many as four pages (0-3) may be available, but the number of pages in
memory depends on the memory/page configuration, number of lines per page, the firmware version, the type of
emulation, and whether 80-Only is selected for columns. The total lines used (Lines/Page x # of Pages) will not
exceed 218. See Page Configurations in Appendix A.
Page lengths which are multiples of 24 or 25 and those that are multiples of 42 or 43 are displayed by default on
a 26-line or 44-line screen, respectively. The extra one or two lines on the screen can be used as status lines.
The selections shown in ( ) are not available in dual session mode. If a page length which is preceded by an
asterisk (*24, *25, *42, or *43) is selected, the total number of pages will be two, where the first page contains
the number of lines in the selection (24,25,42, or 43) and the second page contains the remaining allowable
lines. (See Appendix A.)
In SCO Console emulation, the default is 25.
Screen Length: [26 Lines, 44 Lines, 49 Lines]
Select the number of lines that can be displayed on the screen at one time. The page length affects the default
number of lines.
Screen Video: [Normal, Reverse]
Choose between bright characters on a dark background (normal) and dark characters on a bright background
(reverse). In reverse video mode only, the “Enhanced Attributes” parameter is available. (See page 36.)
Display Cursor: [On, Off]
Choose whether the cursor will be displayed.
Cursor: [Blink Block, Steady Block, Blink Line, Steady Line]
Choose the appearance of the cursor.
Auto Adjust Cursor: [On, Off]
Select whether the screen attempts to follow the cursor down the page by scrolling just enough to keep the
cursor in view.
Columns: [80, 132, 80-Only]
Choose the number of columns that the screen can display. 80-Only provides more pages in memory for a given
page length by disallowing changes to 132-column display.
Width Change Clear: [On, Off]
Select whether the screen is to be cleared when the number of columns on the screen is changed from 80 to 132
or vice versa. This selection is only visible when the Columns selection is 132.
Changing columns from/to 80-only forces the screen to clear independent of Width Change Clear.
Speed: [Fast, Normal]
Selecting fast improves the speed at which screen display occurs at the expense of minor, temporary distortion of
text called “tearing.”
Scroll Speed: [Smooth 1, Smooth 2, Smooth 4, Smooth 8]
Choose whether the data on the screen scrolls smoothly or “jumps” to accommodate data at the rate it is
received.
Select the number of scan lines per second the page scrolls up when smooth scroll is selected. Smooth 1 is the
slowest rate and Smooth 8 is the fastest. This selection is only visible when Scroll is set to smooth.
Viewports: [1 2 3]
Select number of viewports (up to 3 viewports can be selected on a page).
Viewport 1 Bottom Row [10]
1 through page length minus 1. This specifies the last row number of the first viewport.
This parameter displays in Setup when number of viewports is greater than 1.
Viewport 2 Bottom Row [20]
2 through page length minus 1. This specifies the last row number of the second viewport.
This parameter displays in Setup when number of viewports is greater than 2.
Setup
Pages [1-8]
Select the number of pages the user can access. The maximum number of pages is dependent on the page
length. The number of pages is defaulted to 1 whenever the page length or columns is changed. The page
selection will not display when viewports is greater than 1.

Select the language type which matches your keyboard’s layout.
Char Set Mode: [PC, ANSI, ASCII]
Choose which NRC set to use. This selection is only available in National Mode and foreign languages. In VT
emulations, the default is ANSI. To determine which sets are loaded for each mode, refer to the 3153
Programmer’s Reference Guide.
Key Mode: [ASCII, ScanCode]
Select whether keys transmit ASCII codes or the ScanCode. The ScanCode transmits a “make code” when a key
is pressed and a “break code” upon its release. When ScanCode is selected, “Comm Mode” is forced to Full
Duplex and “Character Set” is forced to Multinational (8-bit).
Keyclick: [On, Off]
Choose whether pressing a key results in a clicking sound. The default is off in SCO Console emulation.
Key Repeat: [On, Off]
Choose whether keys, including function keys, will repeat when pressed for more than half a second. This
setting does not affect the following keys on the keyboard:
Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Num Lock, Shift keys, Ctrl keys, Alt keys, Return, Print Screen, Pause.
Lock, F1-F5, Shift keys, Control, Compose, and Return.
Key Rate: [15 cps, 20 cps, 30 cps]
When “Key Repeat” is on, a key that is pressed for more than half a second will automatically repeat. This
selection allows you to choose the number of characters that are generated per second when a key is auto
repeating.
Keyboard Layout: [Q, F]
This selection is only available when Turkish keyboard is selected. Q and F refer to the two Turkish keyboard
layouts available. Q and F correspond to the top left key on the alphanumeric keypad.
Margin Bell: [On, Off]
Choose whether a bell tone sounds when the cursor is nine positions away from the right margin.
Key Lock: [Caps, Reverse, Shift]
- this setting affects the state of alphanumeric keys when Caps-Lock is engaged.
ƒ
Caps causes alphabetic keys to be uppercase regardless of the Shift key.
ƒ
Reverse means that pressing the Shift key will generate lower-case alphabetic keys.
ƒ
Shift causes all alphanumeric keys to be generated as uppercase (or shifted, in the case of numbers). If the
Shift key is hit, while Shift is selected, Caps-Lock will be disengaged.
Caps Lock: [Toggle, Always On, Always Off]
This setting effects the state of the Caps Lock key. When set to always on or always off the key has no effect.
When set to toggle, the terminal will power on in the off mode and pressing the key will alternate between the off
mode and the on mode.
Num Lock: [Toggle, Always On, Always Off]
This setting effects the state of the Num Lock key. When set to always on or always off the key has no effect. When
set to toggle, the terminal will power on in the off mode and pressing the key will alternate between the off mode
and the on mode.
Code Page: [DEC Multi, PC 437, PC 850, PC 852, PC 857, PC 860, PC 861, PC 862, PC 863, PC 865, PC 866, PC 869, ISO-1, ISO-2, ISO-5,
ISO-Hebrew, ISO-Cyrillic, ISO-Greek]
This selection is only available in 8-bit emulations in Multinational Mode. The default code page is based upon
language and emulation selected. To determine which sets are loaded for each code page, refer to the 3153
Programmer’s Reference Guide.
Setup
31
Keys: F5
Enter Key: [CR, CR-LF, TAB]
Select the code the enter key in the numeric keypad transmits.
Return Key: [CR, CR-LF, TAB]
Select the code the return key on the main alphanumeric keypad transmits.
Alt Key (left): [Meta, Legend, Funct, Scroll-Lock, Alt Key]
Select the way in which the left ALT key behaves. In ANSI emulations, Compose is available as a selection instead
of Legend. The Alt Key selection refers to the right Alt key.
Meta - sets the most significant bit for the next character and allows 8-bit data to be generated from the
keyboard.
Compose - precedes sequences of keys to create a character that is not on the keyboard but is available in
the active character set.
Scroll Lock - causes the Alt key to function as the Scroll Lock key, and is a toggle to hold/free data on the
screen. It requires the use of flow control for the host port “Rcv Prtcl”.
Funct - causes the Alt key to function as the Funct key on an ASCII keyboard.
Alt Key causes the left Alt key to behave identically to the right Alt key.
Pound Key: [U.S., British]
Choose the character transmitted for 23h: the US pound (#) or the British pound (£).
Return Key Repeat: [On, Off]
Select whether the Return key located on the alphanumeric keypad will repeat when held down for more than
half a second (only selectable when “Key Repeat” = On).
Return Key: [Field, New Line]
When the Return Key =New Line, the functions specified in the New Line parameter are performed. When the
Return Key = Field, the functions specified in the New Line parameter are performed unless the target line is
within a protected field. The cursor will then move to the first character position of the next unprotected field.
Enter Key: [Send, Return]
The Enter Key can be defined to be either a Send or Return Key.
New Line: [<CR>, <CR><LF>]
This parameter specifies the codes generated when the return key is pressed.
Send Key: [Page, Line]
The contents of the current page is sent to the host when the Send Key is pressed and Send Key is selected for
page. The Contents of the current line is sent to the host when the Send Key is pressed and Send Key is selected
for line.
ƒ
Insert Character: [Mode, Space]
Mode – enters insert mode when the insert key is pressed.
ƒ
Space – a space character is inserted at the current cursor position when the insert key is pressed.
Local Leadin: [On, Off]
This parameter is only available when Key Mode (in the Kybd menu) is ScanCode. If Local Leadin is off, the only
local function (Appendix A) that is available is Ctrl-Scroll Lock to enter Setup. If Local Leadin is on, the Setup
keystroke “introduces” the keystroke as local and then local functions can be generated using the keystrokes
listed on page A-1. For example, to enter Setup when ScanCode and Local Leadin are on, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock to
introduce this as a local function , and then Ctrl-Scroll Lock to enter Setup.
Local Leadin will not work if Comm Mode is set to Half Block or Full Block.
PC Keyboard
Disconnect: [Disabled, Pause, Alt-Pause]
Select the keystroke that will generate a modem disconnect.
Backspace: [BS/DEL, DEL/BS, DEL/CAN, BS/BS]
Choose the codes sent by the backspace key in the normal/shifted positions.
Desk Acc: [Sh-Ctrl-Fkeys, Ctrl ←, Disabled]
Setup
32
Select how the Desk Accessories can be accessed. This selection does not appear when SCO Console emulation
is selected. In SCO Console emulation, Ctrl ← is the only access method.
The default allows the desk accessories to be accessed through a menu which appears when Ctrl and the left
arrow key are pressed simultaneously. This brings up a pop-up window; selections for the specific accessory can
be made from that menu by pressing F1-F5. The Sh-Ctrl-Fkeys option, when selected, allows direct access to desk
accessories by pressing Sh-Ctrl-F1 through Sh-Ctrl-F5. Selecting Disabled will inhibit entry to desk accessories.
Once a desk accessory is displayed, any other desk accessory can be accessed by pressing only the function key
associated with it (without pressing Sh-Ctrl).
When using PC-Term emulation, Local Leadin (in the F5 menu) must be on to access desk accessories. Then, to
view the diagnostic menu, for example, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock, Ctrl-←, F5.
ANSI Keyboard
Disconnect: [Disabled, Shift-F5]
Choose to allow the keystroke that will generate a modem disconnect on the ANSI keyboard or to disable the
Disconnect function.
If “F1 to F5 keys” selection is set to Fkey in Setup, the Disconnect function will be remapped to Ctrl-Shift-F5.
F1 to F5 keys: [Local, Fkey]
This selection determines whether the first five keys (labeled F1-F5) serve as local keystrokes (for example, F3
allows access to Setup) or will serve as function keys which are loaded with the default strings. (Only
reprogrammed strings are visible in the text area for a given function or edit key; the default strings are not
visible in Setup).
If Fkey is selected, then the keystroke to enter Setup becomes Ctrl-F3 on the ANSI keyboard.
ANSI Keyboard
With the three remapping selections, keys which are available on a PC keyboard are now available on the ANSI
style keyboard: [ESC] [‘~] [ , and .].
These three selections should either be kept in their defaults (as they appear on the keyboard), or all three
should be changed to follow the mapping scheme described here.
‘~ Key: [‘ and ~ or ESC]
Select the characters sent by the tic/tilde key.
<> Key: [< and > or ‘ and ~]
Select the characters sent by the triangle bracket key in the normal and shifted positions.
,, and .. Keys: [,, and .. or ,< and .>]
Select the characters sent by the comma and period keys in the normal and shifted modes.
Backspace: [BS/DEL, DEL/BS, DEL/CAN]
Choose the codes sent by the key in the normal/shifted positions.
Compose Key: [Meta, Compose, Funct, Scroll-Lock, Alt Key]
Setup
33
This selection indicates the role that the Compose key will play. The explanation of choices is the same as the Alt
Key selection on page 31.
Ports: F6
EIA Baud Rate: [115200, 76800, 57600, 38400, 19200, 9600, 4800, 2400, 2000, 1800, 1200, 600, 300, 150, 110]
See Quick menu on page 26.
EIA Data Format: [7/1/N, 7/1/O, 7/1/E, 7/1/M, 7/1/S, 7/2/N, 7/2/O, 7/2/E, 7/2/M, 7/2/S, 8/1/N, 8/1/O, 8/1/E, 8/1/M, 8/2/N, 8/2/O, 8/2/E]
See Quick menu on page 26.
EIA (Aux) Parity Check: [On, Off]
Choose whether the parity bit will be checked. When parity check is on and the parity bit received is inconsistent
with the data received, indicating an error in communications, an asterisk (*) 2Ah is displayed instead of the
character.
Aux Baud Rate: [38400, 19200, 9600, 4800, 2400, 2000, 1800, 1200, 600, 300, 150, 134.5, 110]
See Quick menu on page 26.
AUX Data Format: [7/1/O, 7/1/E, 7/1/M, 7/1/S, 7/2/N, 7/2/O, 7/2/E, 7/2/M, 7/2/S, 8/1/N, 8/1/O, 8/1/E, 8/1/M, 8/1/S, 8/2/N]
See Quick menu on page 26.
EIA (Aux) Recv: [No Protocol Xon-Xoff(XPC), Xany-Xoff (XPC), DTR (DSR), Xany-Xoff/DTR (DSR)]
Choose the form of flow control for data received from the primary or secondary host. Software flow control uses
Xon-Xoff DC1 (11h) and DC3 (13h). XPC is used by “Scan Code” mode because it uses DC1 and DC3 as data.
Xany-Xoff (XPC) is similar to Xon-Xoff, except that any character transmitted to the host is treated as an Xon, so
data from the terminal is buffered, rather than being sent to the host. DTR (DSR for Aux) relies on the hardware
signal DTR or DSR (pin 20 or pin 6) from the device. Xany-Xoff/DTR (DSR) uses software and hardware flow
control.
Flow control is recommended to protect against data loss.
EIA (Aux) Xmit: [No Protocol, Xon-Xoff, DSR (DTR), Both]
This is similar to “EIA (Aux) Recv,” except that it applies to the data transmitted from the terminal to the primary
or secondary host or printer. DSR is the hardware signal for Data Set Ready (pin 6).
In ADDS™ VP emulation and WP Graphics mode DC1 and DC3 can be interpreted as data and should not be
selected as a form of Protocol.
EIA (Aux) Xmt Pace: [Baud, 35 cps, 60 cps, 150 cps]
Define the maximum number of characters per second that the terminal can transmit. When a characters limit
(35 cps, 60 cps, or 135 cps) is set, the delays are averaged between characters for the selected baud rate. This is
also known as “pacing.” The Baud option provides no pacing, allowing data to be transmitted at the specified
baud rate.
Host: F7
Break: [250 ms, 170 ms, 500 ms, Off]
Choose the duration of the break signal in milliseconds. This is an interruption in data flow, and can be
disabled.
Modem Control: [On, Off]
If a modem is being used to communicate with the primary or secondary host, modem control should be on. To
perform a disconnect, the terminal drops the DTR signal. In full duplex, the terminal keeps RTS high and checks
for a CD signal before sending data to the modem. In half duplex, it raises RTS and awaits a clear-to-send (CTS)
signal from the modem before sending data.
Disconnect: [2sec, 60ms]
Select the maximum time period that the modem can be disconnected (or the modem line be down) before the
terminal performs a Modem Disconnect. This occurs if “EIA (Aux) Modem Control” is on.
Comm Mode: [Full Duplex, Half Duplex, Full Block, Half Block]
Select the communications mode.
Half-duplex is not available when KeyMode is ScanCode.
Receive <CR>: [<CR>, <CR><LF>]
Select the way in which carriage returns received will be interpreted.
Receive <DEL>: [Ignore, Destruct <BS>]
Setup
34
Choose to ignore the DEL control code (7Fh) when received or to treat it as a Destructive Backspace code.
Send ACK: [Off, On ]
Decide whether the terminal should respond to inquiry (05h) or when certain terminal functions are performed
(configuring the EIA (Aux) ports, splitting screen, etc.) with the ACK (06h) character.
Null Suppress: [On, Off]
In the default mode, the host ignores all received NULLs (00 hex). When off is selected, the terminal will accept
all received NULLs, and act upon them according to the selected emulation.
Send Line Term: [<US>, <CR><LF>]
Select which line terminator is sent. <US> is 1Fh and <CR><LF> is 0Dh 0Ah.
Local: [Off, On]
Select whether keyed data is interpreted locally by the terminal and not sent to the host. Data sent by the host
is lost, if Local is on. The ability to print data is not affected by this mode.
Send Block Term: [<ETX>, <CR>]
Select which character will indicate the end of a block. The choices above are for ASCII emulations. ANSI
emulations have the following choices: [None, FF].
Send End: [Cursor, Region]
Select whether the end is indicated by the scroll region or by the cursor location.
Send Region: [Screen, Scroll]
Choose whether the terminal sends data from the entire screen or from the scrolling region.
Ignore CTS: [Off, On]
Ignore CTS is not displayed in IBM 3151 emulations
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Line Control: [CRTS, PRTS, IPRTS]
PRTS* (permanent request to send) – PRTS handles the CTS and DSR signal as modem signals.
IPRTS* (induced permanent request to send) – IPRTS handles the CTS and DSR signals as if the signals are
always on.
CRTS* (controlled request to send) – CRTS looks at the CTS, DSR and CD signals to determine when the
terminal can send or receive data.
* PRTS and IPRTS require full duplex communication capabilities. CRTS requires half duplex communication
capabilities.
Turnaround Char: [<ETX>, <CR>, <EOT>, <DC3>]
The line turnaround character is attached to the end of a data stream when one of the read commands is
received or one of the following keys is pressed:
Send
Send Line
Reset (if reset attn is enabled)
Clear
Print (if print key attn is enabled)
F1 thru F36
Print line (if print key attn is enabled)
PA1 thru PA3
Print Msg (if print key attn is enabled
Sn Msg
Send Null Suppress: [Off, On]
ƒ
Off – Trailing null characters are converted to space characters when data is sent to the host system.
ƒ
On – Trailing null characters are removed when data is sent to the host system.
Print: F8
Print Mode: [Normal, Auto, Controller]
Select the way in which printing is controlled.
ƒ
Normal indicates that printing is to occur when a print request (such as print screen) is received.
ƒ
Auto prints a line when the terminal receives a LF, a FF, or a VT code, or when autowrap occurs.
ƒ
Controller indicates that host data is sent to the printer (pass through mode). Printing is controlled by the
host computer.
Print Block Term: [<ETX>, <CR>]
Setup
35
Select the character which indicates to the printer that the block of data to be printed has ended. The options
above are for ASCII emulations. In ANSI emulations, the choices are [None, <FF>].
Print: [National, Line Drawing, Multinational]
Choose the set of characters used when printing.
Print Region: [Screen, Scroll]
Indicate the region of the screen that is to be printed: the entire screen or a certain section of it called the
scrolling region. A scrolling region is a limited portion of the screen which applications (such as word
processors) may designate to be the user’s.
Print Line Term: [<US>, <CR><LF>]
Indicate the character that <R>is to terminate a line of print.
Secondary Recv: [Off, On]
When “on,” data received from the serial printer is routed to the port assigned for the host. This data is not
displayed on the screen, and is transparent to the user. When “off,” data received from the printer port is
ignored.
Independent Pass Thru: [Off, On]
When independent pass-through printing is enabled, the host system can concurrently send data to the terminal
and to the printer. When a low speed printer is attached to the terminal, it allows print operations to continue
without suspending normal terminal operations.
Emulation: F9
The parameters displayed in this menu depend upon the current emulation. This section is divided between
parameters for ASCII and ANSI emulations.
ASCII Emulations
Page Edit: [Off, On]
When page edit is on, edit features such as insert act upon text to the end of the current page.
WPRT Intensity: [Dim, Normal, Suppress]
Choose the intensity of write protected characters . Suppress indicates that the character’s foreground is the
same as its background with the effect of “suppressing” output.
WPRT Underline: [Off, On]
Choose whether write-protected characters are underlined.
WPRT Blink: [Off, On]
Choose whether write-protected characters blink.
WPRT Reverse: [Off, On]
Choose whether write-protected characters display in reverse video.
Fkey Speed: [Fast, Normal]
Selects the speed at which function keys and labels are programmed by the host. Fast mode will increase the
speed for Wyse 50 compatibility, but will limit the amount of space in each function key and answerback
message to 8 bytes. Edit keys are not available for programming in fast mode. Changing this selection will
default all function keys, edit keys, and function keys labels.
Save Labels: [Off, On]
When on, labels that are downloaded by the host will be saved in non-volatile memory. If this selection and
Display NV Labels are off, labels written by the host would be lost upon entry and exit to Setup.
Attribute: [Char, Line, Page]
Choose the extent to which attributes are propagated. (The only parallel ASCII emulations are PC Term and
Wyse 60.)
Display NV Labels: [On, Off]
Select whether the labels in non-volatile memory are displayed on the lowest line. When off is selected, any
existing labels will remain on the screen, until on is selected, and they are re-displayed. On a 26-line screen,
they are displayed below line 24. On a 44-line screen, labels are displayed below line 42, and on a 52-line
screen, they are displayed below line 50. (The top line is the top status line and cannot be used for data.) If the
page length used is a multiple of 25 (instead of 24) and the screen length is 26 lines , then the last data line is
used for data and labels will not be displayed regardless of this setting. The same is true for a page length that
is a multiple of 43 (instead of 42) with a screen length of 44 lines.
Setup
36
Status Line: [Standard, Extended, Off]
Select the type of the status line. In standard, cursor row and column, emulation indicator, print indicator,
Caps Lock, and communications mode are displayed. In extended, only emulation indicator, Caps Lock,
communications mode, protect and write protect are displayed.
Char Set: [National, Multinational]
Select whether the character set used is the 7-bit national chart or the 8-bit multinational chart when Language
is not U.S. If U.S. is chosen, the character set is multinational.
Enhanced Attributes: [Off, On]
When set to on, gives a better display presentation in overscan and reverse video modes. The blink and dim
video attributes will affect the foreground text instead of the background. This selection is only available in
reverse video mode, on a per-session basis, and is disabled in a “split” display screen.
Bright Video: [Off, Mode 1, Mode 2]
Provides a brighter display when set to Mode 1 or Mode 2. In Mode 1, both normal and dim text are brighter
than in the standard mode. In Mode 2, only normal text is brighter, resulting in a greater contrast between
normal and dim text.
This parameter setting affects both sessions, but will not affect an ANSI emulation in the inactive session.
WP-Graphics: [Off, On]
Selects whether Word Perfect Graphics commands are processed or ignored.
ANSI Emulations
Numeric Kpd: [Numeric, Application]
Choose the set of strings sent by the numeric keypad.
Cursor Kpd: [Cursor, Application]
Choose the set of strings sent by the cursor control keypad.
Send Data: [All, Erasable]
Choose whether the data sent to the host is all data (erasable and selectively erasable) or only those characters
tagged as erasable.
ANSI-ID: [VT100, VT101, VT102, VT220, VT320]
Select the terminal’s identification.
Function Key Lock: [Off, On]
Select whether the function keys are locked or modifiable by the host.
Key Usage: [Typewriter, Data Process]
This selection is available for all language selections except U.S. It applies to keys that have two characters
printed side-by-side to select which character is sent by that key. Typewriter selects the character printed on the
left side while Data Process selects the character printed on the right side of the keycap.
Char Set: [Multinational, National]
Select whether the character set used is from the 7-bit national chart or the 8-bit multinational chart. The
default is the 8-bit multinational character set except when the emulation is VT100.
Feature Lock: [Off, On]
When on, the host cannot change user features: key repeat, scroll speed, screen background, tab stops, and
keyboard lock.
Status Line: [Off, Indicator, Host-Write, Both]
Specify the way in which the status line is to be used: for host messages [host-write], as a cursor position
indicator [indicator], for [both] or off.
IBM Emulation
Forcing Insert: [Off, Line, Character, Both]
ƒ Off – If there is no room to insert a character or line, the insert operation will not be performed.
ƒ Line – If there is no room to insert a null line and an insert line operation is requested, the current line is
replaced with a null line and the remaining lower lines and the previous current line moves down one line. The
bottom line is then discarded.
ƒ Character – If there is no space to insert a character and an insert character operation is requested, a character
can be inserted at the cursor position. However, the last character of the current line is discarded when the
line wrap parameters is off, or the last character of the page (or field in a formatted page) is discarded when
line wrap is on.
ƒ Both – Enables the line and character functions
Setup
Set Control: [Temporary, Permanent]
ƒ Temporary – Set Control commands do not replace the values stored in NVRAM. Only the working setup
parameters are modified.
ƒ Permanent – The Set Control commands update both the working setup parameters as well as the NV setup
parameters.
Status Line: [Off, Indicator, Host-Write, Both]
Specify the way in which the status line is to be used: for host messages [host-write], as a cursor position
indicator [indicator], for [both] or off.
Char Set: [Multinational, National]

Answerback: F11
Answerback Mode: [On, Off]
Choose whether the answerback message (which is sent to the host at terminal reset or power up) mode is on.
This can be used to log-in to the system.
Answerback Conceal: This is an action parameter which displays “Concealed” at the answerback edit field. Once it
is concealed, the message cannot be redisplayed. This is a security measure for those who use answerback to
send their login names and passwords to the host.
Answerback Message: This is a 30-character field which can be edited. (See the Edit Fields section later in this
chapter.)
When “Fkey Speed” is Fast in the Emul (F9) menu, the answerback edit field is limited to 8 bytes.

Program: F12
Program: [F/Key, Sh-F/Key, Edit Key, Sh-Edit Key]
Specify the type of key to be programmed—function or edit key in its normal or shifted state.
When Fkey Speed is Fast in the EMUL (F9) menu, the Program options are F/Key and Sh-F/Key.
Key Dir: [Comm Depend, Host, Printer, Printer & Host, Screen, Host & Screen, Printer & Screen, All]
Select the destination of the contents of the function or edit key. Comm Dependent will cause the direction of the
key data to correspond to the “Comm Mode” of the current emulation. For example, if the “Comm Mode” is Full
Block, the contents of the key will be channeled to the screen only. If it were Full Duplex, then the contents
would be sent to the host only.
Text: An edit field which permits up to 255 characters. Once the overall text limit (up to 542 characters) is
reached, the terminal will beep and accept no more text. If the text is deleted with the backspace key, the
default code is no longer programmed. Shift-Backspace will restore the default. See the Edit Fields section (page
40) or “Fkey Speed” in the Emulation section (page 35).
Label: A label of up to 7 characters can be entered for function keys in ASCII emulations only. See “Display NV
Labels” on page 35.

Execute: Prt Sc
All of the parameters in this menu are action parameters. Terminal parameters affect all settings, including the
emulation. Session choices affect only settings that relate to the chosen emulation. In dual session (host) mode,
there are two independent sets of session parameters (Session 1 and Session 2). To toggle between sessions, use
the Ctrl-Enter (Num) keystroke.
Save Terminal: Save all settings in non-volatile (permanent) memory, including those associated with the session
selected.
Reset Terminal: All terminal parameters are initialized. It also performs reset pages and default modes.
Recall Terminal: Revert to all terminal and session settings that were saved in nonvolatile memory. A “Reset
Terminal” is also performed. This is referred to as a hard reset and is equivalent to turning the terminal off and
back on.
Default Terminal: Load all defaults for the terminal and session, including the emulation. A “Reset Terminal” is
also performed.
Save Session: Save all the settings associated with the chosen session.
Reset Session: Initialize all session settings. This is also referred to as a “Soft-Reset.” Perform page-resets and
default modes. “Mode” specifies the parameters used by a session which are not selectable through Setup such as
Insert-Mode, Split-Screen, and Graphics-Mode.
Recall Session: Load the previously saved settings associated with the chosen emulation. A “Reset Session” is
also performed.
Default Session: Load all defaults associated with the session selected.
Reset Ports: Clear the transmit buffers for the host and printer port, and receive buffer for the host port. Unlocks
the keyboard and clears its buffer data.
Clear Screen: Clear the screen and the entire page.
Default Session UDKs: Set the contents of all the function and edit keys associated with the chosen session to their
factory default states.
Edit Fields
Setup uses overwrite mode in text editing fields. That is, the cursor keys cannot be used to move to a location in
the text to insert characters. Upon entry to a text field, the cursor is placed at the last text location. Use the
following keystrokes:
ƒ
Backspace – move cursor left by deleting that character.
ƒ
Shift-Backspace – reset the field to its default value.
ƒ
Alphanumeric keys – enter text in the normal, shifted, or control state. To generate a control character
(00h-1Fh) add 40h and use Ctrl with the character in the new position (40h-5Fh). For example, to insert
CR-LF (0Dh, 0Ah) codes, press Ctrl-M, Ctrl-J (4Dh, 4Ah). The compose and meta functions can also be used
to generate 8-bit characters.
Setup

Note To Installer
This equipment complies with the FCC Regulation for Class A devices, Subpart J of Part 15. Shielded, grounded interface
cables were used on all ports for FCC radiated emission testing.
The manufacturer is not responsible for any violation of the FCC Regulation for Class A devices that is caused by
unauthorized modification of the equipment, or caused by equipment installation not in accordance with the instructions
in this manual.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and may cause radio or television interference.
All user equipment that interfaces with other products should be connected with shielded cables. (Contact a local dealer
for more information on shielded cable assemblies and their availability.)
There is no guarantee that interference will not occur. If radio or television interference occurs (this can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on while the radio or television is on), the user is solely responsible for correcting the
interference and is encouraged to take one or more of these measures:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Reorient the receiving antenna.
Relocate the equipment, or move the equipment away from the receiver.
Plug the equipment into a different outlet so the unit and receiver are on different branch circuits.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician.
It is also suggested that the user read the FCC booklet entitled “How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference
Problems”. The booklet is available from the US Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402. (When ordering the
booklet, specify stock number 04-000-00345-4.)
Site Preparation
The screen display geometry on terminal products is aligned using magnetic devices. External magnetic fields created by
other types of electronic equipment, such as printers, in very close proximity to the terminal, may cause minor display
distortion.
Examples of display distortion include:
ƒ
Shaky video
ƒ
Wavy lines
ƒ
Tilted display
This magnetic field interaction only occurs over a very short distance, normally less than twelve inches, and can be corrected by separating the
equipment and/or slightly reorienting the display.
