Advanced 3270 Telnet Dialog Box

You can configure the following options in this dialog box:

Terminal ID

This setting overrides the Model ID selected in Session Setup if the Transport Type is Telnet, and if the Session Type is IBM 3270 Terminal. It allows you to specify a Terminal Model that Host Integrator does not implicitly support (but might work with), such as Fujitsu.

For best results, specify one of the Terminal Models available in Session Setup and leave the Terminal ID box empty. When the Terminal ID box is empty, the Design Tool uses the Model ID defined in Session Setup by default. Only specify a Telnet Terminal ID, if after experimenting with other available Terminal Models IDs in Session Setup, you still cannot connect to the host.

If you must define a Telnet Terminal ID, specify a string you know is acceptable to the host. Otherwise, you may experience problems connecting to the host and emulation problems after connecting to the host. Typically, these types of problems occur if the host is not configured to recognize the terminal specified in the Telnet Terminal ID string.

Telnet Location

Specifies to the host where the connection originated. Can also be used to provide informational messages to the host from the PC. Usage conventions vary by site. You are not required to enter anything in this box.

This box accepts up to 260 characters. You cannot change this value while you're connected to a gateway.

Send Keep Alive packets

To become aware of connection problems as they occur, you can configure your model to Send Keep Alive packets.

Keep Alive Timeout

The interval between the keep alive requests sent by the Design Tool. The range of values is 1-9999 seconds, and the default is 600 seconds.
