The options are:


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.

Set host window size

Select to send the number of rows and columns to the Telnet host whenever they change, so that the host can properly control the cursor if the window size is changed.

Dynamic terminal size

Select to support dynamic update of the number of rows and columns in the display when the user resizes the terminal window. Your Telnet server and application must also support NAWS (Negotiate About Window Size), otherwise display problems can occur.

Note: You can quickly determine the screen size of the terminal window whenever you hover the mouse cursor over the Row and Column indicator (located in the left corner of the status bar). Under Telnet and Secure Shell connection types, the tooltip will also feature "Auto" if Dynamic terminal size is selected.
