Selecting your Terminal Emulation
As part of the login routine you are asked to specify your preferred
terminal (emulation) type. A default terminal type will be shown. This
document also explains how to change your
default terminal emulation.
We strongly recommend VT-100...
It is strongly recommended that you use a proper VT-100 terminal
emulation. This is the default terminal type for Victoria Telecommunity Network and
will result in the best results (provided your communications software
uses a close match to the official VT-100 standard).
Other VT-xxx terminal emulations will also usually work. If you are
using VT-200 you should tell VTN to use VT-200 also.
Other terminal emulations may also work. You should always try to set
both your software and the VTN software to the same
emulation. If VTN does not support the terminal emulation
that you need to use you may have to experiment with the various
terminal emulations available at Victoria Telecommunity Network to find the one that
works best with your software.
You can change your default terminal type by using the VTN
shortcut command go
The default terminal type will take effect the next time you login.
