HP Terminal > File > Logging
Use this dialog box to configure logging and to enable serial device-to-host communications.
Logging copies data from display memory to the printer each time a linefeed is received so that attributes, such as underline, are printed. Normally logging is enabled by the host. However, if you want to configure a user-initiated logging session, select the Logging on check box.
Logging serves two different functions in Reflection:
To provide user-initiated logging of your terminal session.
To accommodate host printing, where an application turns on logging and starts sending data to either a printer or a file.
Difference between logging and printing:
Logging parallels terminal-host printing.
In logging, the host controls printing, bypassing Reflection. The Windows printer driver is still used, unless you enablein the dialog box.
Reflection supports serial device-to-host communications (also called printer-to-host or printer 2-way communications). You can enable serial device-to-host communications when you want a device on a serial port (such as a printer or bar code reader) to be able to send information to a host via Reflection.
Logging is usually enabled by the host. Selectif you want to configure a user-initiated logging session.
Selectif you want a device on a serial port (such as a printer or bar code reader) to be able to send information to a host via Reflection. Selecting this check box enables VT terminal serial device-to-host communications.
