Proper Setup and Use
Important Information
Certain recent scientific literature suggests that poor posture, work
habits, or office equipment setup may cause injuries. Other literature
suggests that there is no cause and effect. Because the safety of
our users is a great concern, it is important to take the precautions
described in Table 1.
If you experience pain or discomfort while using the terminal, take a
substantial break and review the instructions for posture and work
habits. If your pain or discomfort continues when you resume using
the terminal, discontinue use and report the condition to your job
supervisor or physician.

your eyes periodically by looking at distant objects.
Work
Breaks
Take periodic work breaks. Morning, lunch, and afternoon
breaks meet most recommendations. Take advantage of
work breaks to move around and do other movements.
Lighting
Avoid direct lighting or sunlight on the screen, which
causes glare and reflections. The terminal screen has an
antiglare treatment to reduce glare. Place lighting behind
or to the side of your work area, and distribute the lighting
evenly on your work area. Adjust the terminal brightness
and the contrast controls as needed.
Noise
Keep background noise at a minimum. Background noise
above 65 dBA is tiring. Sound-absorbing materials, such
as curtains, carpeting, and acoustic tile, can help reduce
background noise.

Notes
For a session to be enabled, it must be assigned to a comm
port. If you assign more than one session to the same comm
port, you must use a terminal server that supports Terminal
Device Session Management Protocol (TD/SMP), or a host that
supports Session Support Utility (SSU).
A port cannot be assigned as both a comm port and a printer
port at the same time.
Selecting Comm = ‘‘ none’’ disables a session. A session that
is dimmed is disabled, but it can still be configured in Set-Up.

Multiple Sessions
2.1 Overview
Multiple sessions extend the WS525 to act like four terminals in one.
A session is an active connection between the terminal and a host
system. See Figure 1–3.
The WS525 supports up to four sessions using virtual terminals. Each
virtual terminal maintains the full keyboard and display state of a
real physical terminal but shares a single keyboard and display with
other virtual terminals. Before you can login using a virtual terminal,
it must be connected to a host computer.
WS525 session virtual terminals can be connected directly to a host
computer through any of the three serial communication ports on the
back of the terminal. Since there are only three comm ports, this
method alone can only support three sessions.
To use a fourth session or to reduce the number of serial comm lines
needed, more than one session must be connected through a single
comm port. The WS525 allows this using a session management
protocol, called TD/SMP (Terminal Device/Session Management
Protocol). TD/SMP allows two or more sessions to share a single
comm line, as long as the other end of the comm line supports the
protocol. To enable TD/SMP at the terminal, you simply assign more
than one session virtual terminal to the same comm port in Set-Up.
TD/SMP is available on most terminal servers or host systems with
SSU software. If you are using a terminal server, check with its
documentation to determine if it can run TD/SMP.

Continue with your login procedure.
To permanently set a terminal server port to use TD/SMP, type:
Local> define port multi enable
Return
2.2.1 Using SSU Host Software
If your WS525 is connected directly to a host computer without a
terminal server, you can still use TD/SMP by running the Session
Support Utility (SSU) on your host computer. On a system that has
SSU software, such as OSF/1 or OpenVMS, enable sessions as follows:
$ SSU ENABLE
Return
2.2.2 Opening Another Session
Once TD/SMP is enabled, you can open a new session and switch
between them as follows:
1. Press the

keyboard; or press
2. To go directly to a particular session, press Caps Lock 1 , 2 , 3
or 4 on the numeric keypad. The session number for the current
session is displayed at the lower left of the screen.

2.3 Tips for Using Multiple Sessions
2.3 Tips for Using Multiple Sessions
•
You can display data from two sessions at the same time by
dividing the screen into two windows. Press Ctrl F4 (Session) or
Ctrl Caps Lock 0 kpd to change the window configuration.
•
When you choose Display Framed windows, you can assign
a 30-character name to each session for the window title bar.
The first 12 characters of the session name become the session
icon name. If the title is a valid host or service name, a terminal
server will try to automatically open a connection to that service.
•
If you allow a session to be updated from the host, when new data
is received that has not been displayed, the session icon at the top
of the screen blinks.
•
To enable two or more sessions to use the same settings, configure
either one, then use Copy settings from in the session menu to
copy the desired settings to other sessions.
•
You can control the number of pages of display memory available
to each session from Set-Up by using the Pages per session...
dialog. The typical terminal has nine pages total. Before you
increase pages in one session, you may need to reduce the pages
assigned to other sessions. Any data on pages affected will be
erased.
•
If the session context between the terminal and host is lost due to
a power failure or other interruption, you can usually restore the
previous session context without starting over by pressing F4 or
Caps Lock 0 kpd.
•
The terminal automatically enables session management when
you assign more than one session to a single comm port.

3.2 Keyboard Summary
Accessibility aid
This feature allows a user with limited motor skills to use
modifier key combinations in a sequential manner rather than in
a simultaneous manner. All modifier key combinations are supported.
There are two operation states—Latch and Lock. The Latch state
affects only the next key pressed. When in the Lock state, all keys
pressed are affected by the modifier until you press the same modifier
key again or press any other modifier key twice. A small icon,
indicating the state, is displayed on the Keyboard Indicator Line
or the Status Line.
To enable:
Press any modifier key five times.
Latch state:
Press any modifier key once.
Lock state:
Press any modifier key twice.
To disable:
Press and hold a modifier key while you press
another key.
Review previous lines
In Set-Up or through software, you can allocate the pages that are
assigned to each session, up to a total of nine pages. When Review
previous lines is selected, the page memory allocation for a session
becomes a single page and a scroll back buffer. You can then use Ctrl
and Ctrl keys to scroll up or down to review lines previously scrolled
off the screen. (Note: When this feature is enabled, the host cannot
write to specific pages, and control codes from the host are ignored.)

Defining Keys
4.1 Define Key Editor
Overview
This terminal provides a powerful Define Key Editor that allows you
to modify the function of keys on your keyboard. Since keystrokes
can perform many different functions, it will take some practice to
understand how the keys work. This section is an introduction to
customizing your keyboard.
Moving Standard Functions
The simplest way to re-program a key is to copy the behavior of
another key. The following method allows you to move factory default
key functions to any position on the keyboard:
1. From the Keyboard menu item, select the Define key . . .
function, and the Define Key Editor menu will appear.
2. Press the key you want to define.
3. Choose Copy of key default and press
Enter .
4. Press the key you want to copy.
5. Choose the OK or Apply button and press
Enter .
Names are displayed in the Set-Up language selected (not according
to the keyboard language). They are truncated to 12 characters in
the definition field. The ± symbol indicates a toggle feature. Copying
does not affect the function of the key being copied. The terminal
always copies the standard function of the chosen key, even if you
have redefined that key. You can undo a mistake by copying the
default values of a key to itself.
Defining Keys 4–1

4.1 Define Key Editor
Function Keys
Function keys are used to transmit function key sequences or to
perform local terminal functions such as the arrow keys ( , , , ),
the Shift modifier key, or the key that calls up the Set-Up menu (F3).
A User Defined Key (UDK) is a special function key.
Modifier Keys
A modifier key is a key that modifies the behavior of other keys when
it is pressed and held down. For example, pressing an alphanumeric
key in combination with the Shift modifier key will normally send the
shifted or uppercase characters for that key.
Modifier keys are treated as a special kind of local terminal function.
The function modifier keys are: Shift , Ctrl , and Alt . Alphanumeric keys
can also be modified by pressing Group Shift ( Alt Gr on enhanced PC
keyboards) and Alt Shift (Shift-2). Modifier keys themselves cannot
normally be modified by other keys. A key assigned to act as the
Shift modifier, for example, cannot transmit a function sequence when
pressed in combination with the Alt key. Defining a key as a modifier
key makes all assignable combinations of that key act as a modifier.
Example: Changing the <x key to delete when unshifted and to
backspace when shifted.
