More Settings RLogin Dialog Box

The options are:

TCP port

When connecting to a host via Rlogin, most hosts wait for an incoming connection on TCP Port 513. If your host uses a different port, type that number here.


This setting determines whether a parity bit is generated for each character transmitted. Parity is used to detect errors in data transmission; the number preceding the slash indicates the number of data bits sent.

To use the multinational character set or 8-bit controls, Parity must be set to one of the values that offers 8-bit controls. If your communications link generates parity, and you set Parity to 8/None, multinational characters appear on your screen. In this case, set Parity to either 8/Even or 8/Odd.


Select the rate at which Reflection transmits and receives data through the network connection.

Terminal type

To override the default terminal, select or type a value here.

In general, you control the following characteristics when you change terminal types:

  • Which screen control sequences the host sends to Reflection to format the screen.

  • The position of the cursor.

  • Which characters to display in a host application.

If you're having trouble running a host application, the negotiation between Reflection and the host might be wrong. If you enter a terminal type that the host does not recognize, Reflection reverts to a list of default values until one is found that the host supports.


Specify the number of milliseconds Reflection should attempt to make a connection before timing out. The maximum value is 65535. The timeout period begins after host name resolution has taken place. This means an additional delay, usually a few seconds beyond the value specified.

When this is set to 0 (the default), Reflection timeout behavior is determined by your Windows operating system.

Session limits

Select the maximum number of sessions you want to allow for a Telnet connection.

Close on disconnect

Select to close your session document when you disconnect from the host.
