Audio Alarm

Enable beep

If checked, anything that would cause a bell causes an audible alert. This includes receiving a bell character from the host, or a margin bell if it is enabled.

Enable bell column

If checked and Enable Beep is checked, the margin bell rings at the column specified in the Bell Column field.

Bell column

Enter the bell column number here.

Keyboard Options

Enable type ahead

This item specifies whether the emulator buffers keystrokes when the keyboard is locked, or when data is received from the NonStop.

Use enter key as a function key

This item specifies whether the Enter key is treated as an extra function key in block mode.

Enable PF key support

This item specifies whether or not the emulator supports PF keys. When PF key support is enabled (checked) pressing any function key transmits both the key press and the contents of modified fields on the display to the Host computer. When disabled (not checked), only the key press is transmitted.

Convert input to upper case

If checked, all input typed in at the keyboard is forced to upper case, regardless of the state of the shift or caps lock keys.


Terminal ID

This item specifies the character used to identify the exact terminal type being emulated. Programs on your Host computer can use this character to modify their behavior.

Firmware revision

This item specifies a three character string which identifies the firmware revision of the terminal being emulated. Some programs on your Host computer may refuse to run if they detect an old firmware revision, and this string can be used to prevent that from happening.


Short name

This item specifies the HLLAPI short name of the session. Valid values are A to Z.

Long name

This item specifies the HLLAPI long name of the session.


Memory pages

This field defines the number of scroll back pages that are available for data that has scrolled off the screen. The default value should be 12, and the maximum value is 400.



This item specifies the national character set used for communications with the Host computer. Languages ending with 7 are 7-bit national character sets. Languages ending with 8 use the 8-bit ISO 8859-1 / Windows ANSI character set.

Host supports Euro symbol

Check this item if the host supports the Euro symbol.

Enable line drawing character substitution

Check this item to replace foreign characters with line drawing characters.

Hot Spots

Enable hot spots

This item turns hot spot processing on and off. If enabled (checked), control double mouse clicks behave differently in conversational and block modes as follows:

Conversational: Control double clicking on a word places that word at the current cursor position, followed by a carriage return. For instance, at the telnet server “Enter Choice>” prompt you can control double click on one of the available services listed and it is sent to the cursor location followed by a carriage return. Words are delimited by any non-alpha or non-numeric character. Control double clicking on any function key labels ( Fn or SFn (i.e. F1, F14, SF1, SF14)) sends that function key.

Block: Control double clicking on any function key labels ( Fn or SFn (i.e. F1, F14, SF1, SF14)) sends that function key.
