Wyse Features

Label lines The terminal decides how many label lines are visible by how many display rows are requested. Reflection 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

Setting Description
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).
Clear Click to clear the answerback message.
Conceal 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.
Configure Click to select and configure a serial port. The Configure button from the Terminal Setup Advanced Options dialog box is equivalent to the Configure button from the Logging Settings dialog box. You can use the button from either dialog box to configure your serial device port.
