Telnet VT Terminal ID

This setting determines the following terminal characteristics:

When Host Integrator connects to a Telnet host, the Telnet protocol negotiates a Telnet terminal ID with the host. In general, this negotiation results in the selection of the correct terminal ID. However, if you are having trouble running a host application, the negotiation between Telnet and the host could be the issue.

To override Host Integrator's election of a terminal, select a terminal ID from the list (because this list box is editable, you can just type in any value). If you enter a terminal ID that the host does not recognize, Host Integrator reverts to a list of default values until one is found that the host supports. The default terminal ID values are VT100, VT 220, VT 320, VT 420 and VT52. The terminal type and the settings are independent of each other. If you enter a terminal ID string, it may be up to 40 characters long taken from a set of uppercase letters, digits, and the two punctuation characters, hyphen and slash. It must start with a letter and end with a letter or digit.
