Advanced Options Dialog Box for Wyse Terminal Types

The options are:

Wyse Features

Label lines

The terminal decides how many label lines are visible by how many display rows are requested. InfoConnect allows you to always have two. If only one label line is visible, use the Shift key to display the second line.

Status line

Select a status line type.

Answerback message


Answerback message

If the host expects an answer in response to an ENQ character, type the answer here.


Insert special characters

Select to allow escape sequences and ASCII control codes in the message (for example, press Enter to include a CR character).


Auto answerback

Select to cause the answerback message to be sent to the host automatically after a communications line connection. You may transmit the answerback message at any time by pressing Alt+F7 (this method of sending the message replaces the VT320 keystroke Ctrl+Break).



Click to clear the answerback message.



Click to replace the message with the word <Concealed>. Once a string is concealed, there is no way to unconceal it; you have to replace the text by typing new text, or click Clear to start again.


Serial device to host

Select to maintain a serial connection to the configured port and send any characters received from this serial connection to the existing host connection. This setting is typically enabled by the host application when it is required.



Click to select and configure a serial port.

The Configurebutton from the Terminal Setup Advanced Options dialog box is equivalent to the Configure button from the Logging Settingsdialog box. You can use the button from either dialog box to configure your serial device port.
