wy50 terminal settings


Well, it has been a while since I have had to ask a question. But, I have found something that I can't seem to find an answer for. After doing the usual googleing and searching the sight I am no closer. So, here goes. I'm sure someone out there will know.

Here at work I have an IBM Risc with IBM AIX Version 4.3.3 that I need to telnet into. The software that we use needs for me to connect using wy50 settings. The programs that I use under windoze I can tell it to emulate wy50 when telneting. I can't seem to emulate it with any shell. Settings like vt100 just does not work. The program we use wants wy50 or the menus are all messed up and you can't work.

How do I do that from say Telnet or any other shell.

Thanks for any help y'all might have.

Dave

Try this:

export TERM=wy50

Oh, one more thing I forgot.

Under Unix I would change the tty to wy50 using:

chdev -l tty# -1 term=wy50

and my speed by:

chdev -l tty# -a speed=9600

My problem is I don't know what I would use under Linux.

Oops, typing at the same time.

Ok, tried it but did not work. When I do an export alone it does show that TERM="wy50". But when I telnet in it still does the same thing.

Man, been a while since I posted. Sorry about not suppling enough info. Here at work I installed Knoppix 3.2 to the harddrive. That way y'all know what Distro I'm working with.

Ok, I've never done this but it looks like it'll work:

check the telnet man page under the section environ.
It explains there how to mark your ENV variables for export to remote systems. By default only DISPLAY and PRINTER are sent, that's why it's not picking up your term.

Alternatively, is ssh an option?

Ok, wanted to give an update.

I tried changing the ENV settings but still had no luck.

I did some more googleing with wy60 since I have used that also and I found this webiste with the wy60 Terminal Emulator:

http://www.gutschke.com/wy60/

Compiled and installed it and it works great.

Just had to change my default font to Linux and now it works as well as my Power Term on my Windoze partition.

Thanks for all the help. I did not find much here about wy50 emulation so hopefully this will help the next person that is trying to telnet using wy50.

Dave
