About this Guide

PowerTerm is a feature rich terminal emulation application for Microsoft

Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms.

This guide assumes that the user is familiar with basic windowing system conventions (file transferring, copy/paste functions, etc.) and the operation of the terminal to be emulated.

Some features documented in this guide may not be available in the version of PowerTerm you are using. For example, InterConnect for Mac does not include the FTP component.

1 Introduction

This chapter describes the PowerTerm terminal emulator and its main features. It also explains the basic steps on how to use PowerTerm for users who are familiar with accessing remote terminals.

This chapter includes the following topics:

What is PowerTerm?

PowerTerm Features

System Requirements

Getting Started

What is PowerTerm?

PowerTerm emulates various terminal types, including IBM, UNIX, HP, VMS and Tandem. PowerTerm enables connections to a single or to multiple hosts via both network and remote connections.

PowerTerm has two main features to simulate a traditional host terminal:

Terminal display emulation - PowerTerm emulates the exact display of the chosen terminal. It presents host applications precisely as they would appear on a traditional terminal. Once the

PC connects to a host computer, all host operations can be performed similar to the actual host terminal.

Terminal keyboard emulation, PowerTerm emulates the selected terminal's keyboard by mapping the PC keys to match the host keys. Keyboard mapping definitions are stored in a .ptk file.

PowerTerm provides various features to customize and optimize the working environment:

Power Pad, a programmable floating keypad. (Windows edition only.)

Soft buttons, programmable buttons located at the bottom of the

PowerTerm window.

PowerTerm Script Language (PSL), a full-featured programming language, which enables the user to create scripts for automating tasks. For example, a PSL script can be created for automatic login. Scripts can be used at startup of PowerTerm, or can be utilized any time during a PowerTerm session. PSL commands can also be assigned to the Soft buttons and the Power Pad to enable additional functions with a click of the mouse.

PowerTerm supports the standard Microsoft OLE (COM) and DDE mechanisms to communicate with other Windows applications.

System Requirements

Please read the Readme.txt file included with the installation. Or, visit the

Ericom Website www.ericom.com/systemreq.asp

, for the most updated requirements.

Getting Started

PowerTerm Setup

To enable PC-host connections, two sets of parameters are required:

Terminal parameters

Communication parameters

All parameters are saved in a Terminal setup file where the default file is named ptdef.pts. Setup file extensions are:

• pts for the Terminal setup file

• ptc for the Communication setup file

• ptk for the Keyboard definitions file

• ptp for the Power Pad definitions file

PowerTerm provides the option to work with a single host or with multiple hosts. Different setup configurations may be created for working with each host. For more information about defining and saving parameters, see chapters Defining Emulations and Defining

Connections.

Working with a Single Terminal Connection

For connections to a single host connection, use the default terminal setup and communication file. PowerTerm will automatically use the parameters in the setup file to start the system.

Working with Multiple Terminal Connections

For connections to multiple terminal connections, create a different setup file for each emulation session. To create a setup file, first define the terminal setup and communication parameters, and then save these parameters to a terminal setup file.

User’s Guide

Using PowerTerm

Step 1: Start PowerTerm

Select Start menu | Programs | Ericom Software | PowerTerm and click the

PowerTerm icon. The PowerTerm window opens.

When PowerTerm is used for the first time, the PowerTerm window is automatically displayed together with the Connect dialog. After the connection parameters have been defined, the Connect dialog will be displayed according to the selected option.

PowerTerm opens with the default terminal setup file. The user can also open

PowerTerm using a customized setup file, or script.

The most important section of the PowerTerm window is its work area, which emulates a host terminal screen. This section is where the user interacts with the host and where the host returns display data. (For more information on how to customize the desktop, see chapter Customize the Desktop and Selecting

Text)

Step 2: Select a Terminal Emulation

At the Connect dialog, the user can either configure a new session or open a previously defined terminal setup file.

To select terminal settings:

1. Select Terminal | Setup. The Terminal Setup dialog appears.

2. Select the Emulation tab.

3. Click one of the Terminal Types. The emulation type that is selected changes the number of setup tabs and, for IBM emulations, the PowerTerm windows display.

4. Define terminal settings by clicking the relevant Property page tab and define setup parameters.

5. Click OK.

6. Save the settings by selecting File | Save Terminal Setup or Save

Terminal Setup As. The file is saved.

To open a previously defined Terminal setup file:

7. Select File | Open Terminal Setup. The Open File dialog appears.

8. Select the desired setup file and click OK.

Or,

1. Select Communication | Connect. The Connect dialog appears.

2. Click Setups. The Setup dialog appears.

PowerTerm InterConnect

User’s Guide

3. Type the desired setup file name or alternatively click the browse button and select the desired file in the Select File dialog.

Step 3: Connect to Host

Once the terminal emulation is defined, specify the communication parameters for the current session, or select a previously saved session from the session list. PowerTerm also provides an option to run a script file before connecting to a host

To connect to a host:

1. Select Communication | Connect. The Connect dialog appears.

2. Define communication parameters or select a session with previously defined connection parameters from the Session list.

3. Click Connect. A connection is established to a host computer.

Step 4: Work with the Host

Once connected to a host, the session will emulate a traditional terminal.

Step 5: Exit PowerTerm

PowerTerm provides different options when exiting the application. The session can automatically close, or be prompted with a confirmation message prior to closing.

Select File | Exit or press both <Alt> and <X> on the keyboard.

If the terminal setting has changed, PowerTerm displays a warning message asking if to update the terminal settings file. The message will point to the name of the setup file currently loaded

(ptdef.pts is the default setting). Click OK to update the terminal settings, or No to cancel the latest changes and restore the default setup.

Hot Keys

Hot keys are keyboard shortcuts that are used instead of selecting menu commands. These hot keys refer to the standard PC keyboard keys, before they are mapped to terminal keys. Once hot keys are mapped, they lose their original function and reflect the newly mapped terminal key. For example, if you map <Alt F4> to the <Backspace> key on the terminal keyboard, it performs the function of a <Backspace> key.

The following table lists the default PowerTerm hot keys (Windows Only):

3 Starting and Stopping Sessions

When PowerTerm is used for the first time, the PowerTerm window is automatically displayed together with the Connect dialog. After the connection parameters have been defined, the Connect dialog will be displayed according to the user’s selected options.

The user can set PowerTerm behavior and automate processes in the

Preferences property pages. These remain active until changed. For example, if the user selects to connect automatically at PowerTerm startup, it will always be connected when PowerTerm launches. Other settings can also be customized, for example auto-reconnect and keyboard inactivity time limit.

PowerTerm opens with the default terminal setup file. The user can also open

PowerTerm using a customized setup file, or a script file.

Once the user has defined terminal and communication parameters,

PowerTerm will be ready to connect to a host. For more information on connections, see chapter Defining Connections.

The communication mode appears beside the application name on the

PowerTerm window title bar. When communication ends, the mode name disappears from view.

When working with more than one host, PowerTerm enables the user to connect to a host using customized PSL scripts. The user will need to define a different script with the name of each host. This option provides a Windows shortcut to a host. For more information about scripts, see chapter Scripts.

PowerTerm also provides the option to modify connection parameters for COM type communications. This option is only available when connected to a host.

To start PowerTerm:

1. Click the Start button in the Task bar.

2. Select Programs | Ericom Software | PowerTerm | PowerTerm. The application is launched.

To define preferences:

1. Select Terminal | Setup. The Terminal Setup dialog appears.

2. Select the Preferences tab. The Preferences property page is displayed.

3. Select the parameters that are required.

Starting PowerTerm Using a Setup File

PowerTerm can be started using a default or customized setup file. A setup file contains both communication session parameters and terminal setup parameters. It is in text format and can be edited using a text editor.

PowerTerm InterConnect

61 of 136

User’s Guide

The Default Setup file, called ptdef.pts, is used with single host connections.

When the user opens PowerTerm, it automatically uses this file to initiate terminal setup and connection parameters.

A customized setup file is used to start PowerTerm with predefined communication and terminal setup parameters for a specific connection. This can be done by using a command or creating a Windows shortcut. Before creating a shortcut to a setup file, create and save the setup file in

PowerTerm. For more information about creating and customize setup files, see chapter Defining Connections.

To start PowerTerm with a customized setup file:

Double-click the PowerTerm shortcut icon on the desktop or access it from the

Start menu. The session starts automatically with the predefined parameters.

A terminal setup file can also be opened during a PowerTerm session to run a session using predefined terminal setup and communication parameters.

There are two options to use a setup file:

Select File | Open Terminal Setup. The Open File dialog appears and a setup file may be selected.

Select Communication | Connect. The Connect dialog appears and a setup file may be specified for the connection.

Starting PowerTerm Using a Script

The user can also launch PowerTerm and run a script immediately upon launching. Scripts are created with PowerTerm Script Language (PSL) and enable The user to automate tasks. For example, use a script to automatically connect to a specific host. For more information about scripts, see chapter

Scripts.

Starting PowerTerm with Auto Connect

The Auto Connect option enables the user to automatically connect to a specific terminal using the parameters in the default setup file.

Starting a New PowerTerm Session

PowerTerm can run two or more sessions concurrently by opening a new instance of the PowerTerm window. Each session is identified by a letter

(starting with A), which appears in the session window title bar. A session is assigned the first available letter. For example, if A, B and D are opened the next session opened is assigned C.

To open a new instance of the PowerTerm window:

Select File | New Terminal Window. A new instance of the PowerTerm window opens.

To toggle between open sessions:

Press <Ctrl>+<Spacebar>.

To switch to a specific session:

Press <Shift>+<Ctrl>+<X>, where X is the session letter. For example, to work in session C, press <Shift>+<Ctrl>+<C>.

10 Printing

Printer emulation is the printing of data from a host to personal printers connected to personal computers (PC). Host applications generate print jobs that can be printed on host attached printers or printers attached to PCs. The actual location of the printer is transparent to the host application. Print emulation is the receiving of data in host format or languages and converting it to printer format and languages.

PowerTerm InterConnect enables the user to define print parameters in order to print the terminal screen or data transferred from the host application.

PowerTerm InterConnect supports three methods of printing host information to local or network-accessible printer resources:

Screen printing, allows printing what is on the display using ‘print screen’ features of the client operating system. Direct the printer output to a printer attached to the client computer or to a network-accessible resource.

Client-redirected printing, delivers a host printer data stream to the appropriate emulation application running on a client computer. The client software converts the data stream into data that can be output to a locally attached or network-accessible printer resource.

Server-based redirected printing, uses a server process to convert

SNA host printer data streams into data that can be redirected to a locally attached or network-accessible printer resource defined with the Windows NT Server Printer Manager.

In most cases, the user does not have to modify the standard printer stream before sending it to a defined printer. The Printer property page and Advanced

Printing setup dialogs enables the user to define printing parameters.

Printing can be done in either Text or Graphic mode. For IBM 5250 printing emulations there is also the option to enable Host Transform printing.

Advanced Printing

Under the Advanced Printing setup, if the user wants to format line data in a format other than that which was originally generated by the application, additional information must be provided in the page format. This additional information defines the following:

Locations and lengths of fields in the input record

Placement, direction, and font for each field, as it is mapped into page format

Suppression of fields, which is usually specified if multiple-page copies are printed with field suppressions on selected copies.

PowerTerm InterConnect

User’s Guide

The two different modes, Text and Graphic, impact which fields are functional in the Advanced Printing Setup dialog:

Text mode is designated in the Printer property page by setting the two data conversion combo boxes (Print Screen or Slave Printer) to non-graphic values (Host/None/UTF-8). Either the host instructs the printer or the user specifies the desired print escape sequences in a .ped file.

Graphics mode is graphic printing. It is designated in the Printer property page by setting the two data conversion combo boxes

(Print Screen or Slave Printer) to Graphics.

IBM 5250 Printer Session Data Conversion

Graphic Mode

A graphic is a pictorial representation of data which is processed differently than text by the emulation.

To achieve the best fit for the page:

1. Set Slave Printer Data Conversion to None.

2. Set CPI to Auto/Auto Printer.

Note: Whenever the CPI or LPI field is set to Auto/Auto Printer

- specify the desired page type for text printing.

3. Select desired Page Type for Text Printing.

To use the host's CPI value:

For 5250 Printer emulations only.

1. Set Slave Printer Data Conversion to Graphics.

2. Select Use Host Value in the CPI field.

3. Verify that Enable AS/400 Host Print Transform is not selected.

To set the margins:

Printout margins are the space between the edge of the printed page and the border of the printing. Modifying the top and left margins will determine the position at which printing will begin.

Minimize/maximize the margins or alternatively shift the print margins (i.e. 30 in the right margin and -30 in the left margin).

1. Select Terminal | Setup. The Terminal Setup dialog appears.

2. Select the Printer tab.

3. Select Graphics for Slave Data Printer Conversion.

4. Click the Advanced Printing button. The Advanced Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.

5. From the Printer/Type Model drop down list, select the desired printer.

6. Note If the manufacturer Printer Type and Model are not listed, then choose one that is compatible.

7. Define the Margins. For example, to shift the margin 1 cm type in

100.

Note When Auto/Auto (Printer Sizes) is selected (the default printer values are used) for CPI, then the right margin field is enabled.

When either of these values is selected for LPI, the bottom margin field is activated.

User’s Guide

Text Mode

Text mode is designated in the Printer Property Page by setting the two data conversion combo boxes (Print Screen or Slave Printer) to non-graphic values

(Host/None/UTF-8).

In text mode, a printer selection is useful since PowerTerm requires the printer specific escape sequences to instruct it how to format the document to be printed.

Page orientation is relevant to non-graphic mode, as long as the correct printer under Advanced Printer Setup is selected. This mode is recommended for dot matrix printers.

Host Print Transform

The Host Print Transform feature allows the SCS-to-ASCII data stream conversion to take place on the host server instead of by PowerTerm

InterConnect.

The Printer settings/properties impact the data stream prior to reaching the output destination. Therefore any changes following this made in

Windows will have no effect on the PowerTerm printer settings.

When Host Print Transform is enabled, SCS data is transformed to ASCII data and passed through PowerTerm to the specified ASCII printer. If the data stream is ASCII, the data is sent directly to the printer, and not converted by

PowerTerm. This is relevant when printing to a specific printer such as barcode or in an environment which has limited memory.

Insufficient memory could be due to several factors, for example there is no Print Manager installed, the .ped files cannot be installed, or Graphic mode is not functional.

To set values for IBM 5250 host print transform:

1. Select Terminal | Setup. The Terminal Setup dialog appears.

2. Select the Printer tab.

3. Select a text mode (Host/None/UTF-8) for Slave Data Printer

Conversion.

4. Click Advanced Printing. The Advanced Printer Setup dialog appears.

5. Select Enable AS/400 Host Print Transform and select the parameters.

To use the host's CPI value:

Non-IBM 5250 Printer Session Data Conversion

Graphic Mode

A graphic is a pictorial representation of data which is processed differently than text by the emulation.

To achieve the best fit for the page:

1. Select Terminal | Setup. The Terminal Setup dialog appears.

2. Select the Printer tab.

3. Set Slave Printer Data Conversion to Graphics.

4. Set CPI to Auto.

Note Selection of Auto is the best fit for the page, while Auto

(Printer Sizes) is best fit for the page using only the pre-defined printer font sizes.

5. Select the desired Page Type for Text Printing.

Text Mode

Text mode is designated in the Printer Property Page by setting the two data conversion combo boxes (Print Screen or Slave Printer) to non-graphics value

(Host/None/UTF-8).

Page orientation is relevant to non-graphic mode if the correct printer under

Advanced Printer Setup is selected.

Escape Sequences

An escape sequence is a series of characters used to trigger some sort of command state in computers and their attached peripherals. A text editor

(like VI) can display lines of text in a terminal window by simply writing those characters to the window. However, in order to perform such functions as moving the cursor, making text the brighter, or erasing part (or all) of the screen: escape sequences must be sent to the host; these are special strings of characters meant to control the terminal. A terminal observes each input character and if it is a part of an escape sequence, it interprets that character string as a command instead of displaying it as text.

Escape sequences may be recorded in a number of ways:

.prt files

PowerTerm InterConnect

98 of 136

User’s Guide

.ped files

• keyboard mapping

Printer Configuration Files (.prt)

The Printer Configuration Files (.prt) enables the user to manipulate the printer output (for example: bold, italic, underline). Use the escape sequences in the PowerTerm supplied prt file. However, there are circumstances that would warrant looking up alternative escape sequences.

Typical Use

1. Verify the existence of the .prt file in the folder where ptw32.exe resides.

2. Create a PSL file with the following name: open-printer file yourfilename.prt

Referencing alternative escape sequences

There are times when the printer will print an unnecessary escape sequence.

To avoid this, force the emulation program to reference an alternative sequence, thus replacing it with a more effective sequence.

The source.prt and customized prt files be located in the same folder as the

PowerTerm product executable.

1. Edit the source.prt file in the following manner: blank = X1B escapesequence (which the emulation should ignore)

2. Save the file.

3. Create the file ignore.prt with the following line: blank =

4. Save the file ignore.prt to the PowerTerm folder.

5. Create a PSL file with the following line: open-printer file ignore.prt

6. Save the PSL file to the PowerTerm folder.

7. Edit the PowerTerm InterConnect shortcut by adding the newly created PSL file name after the exe (preceded by a space).

8. Double-click the shortcut icon.

Modifying Printer Settings via the .PED file

Selecting a File Transfer Mode

PowerTerm FTP client distinguishes between transferring Binary data and transferring a text (ASCII) file. It is important to select the right transfer mode to obtain the correct information, when accessing files on host computers. By default, PowerTerm FTP client transfers files in Binary mode.

In Binary mode, data is copied bit by bit so that the original and the copy are identical. This mode is appropriate when transferring files between computers of the same type. Programs are usually transferred in Binary mode, for example, .doc, .exe, and .dll files.

In Ascii mode, data is treated as a set of characters (seven bit plus one bit for parity checking). The characters transferred have the same meaning on the target computer as they have on the source computer. This mode is appropriate for transferring textual data between two different systems, for example UNIX and

Windows. Text files are usually transferred in ASCII mode, for example, a file with the .txt extension.

The following is a list of common file types and their recommended mode of transfer:

Text (.txt)

Database

Before exiting the PowerTerm FTP client, disconnect from the current FTP site.

Changes to the preferences are either saved automatically upon exit of the client: if Save Settings on Exit is selected, or the user is prompted to save them.

To disconnect from an FTP site:

Click Disconnect.

To exit the PowerTerm FTP client:

Select File | Exit.

Troubleshooting the PowerTerm FTP Client

Refer to the following checklist to resolve FTP related issues:

Connection cannot be established

Ensure that the remote system provides an FTP server, which is running.

Ensure that the system type is entered correctly. Select Auto if unsure about which system type to use.

PowerTerm FTP client reports a login failure

Ensure that the User name and Password were entered correctly.

Files cannot be transferred or received

Ensure that the correct transfer type (Binary or Ascii) is selected. Transferring a file in the incorrect mode may corrupt that file. Select Binary, unless transferring text files to or from a UNIX FTP server

Ensure that the necessary permission for specific operations is entered, like write access to a directory.
