Using a Command Line


Using a Command Line

To start WyseTerm, type the following in any command line:

home\htelnet /t | /r @settings.hts host port# /s script.ebx



is your Home directory.


an optional setting that specifies the Telnet protocol. This is the default protocol if you do not specify another one.


an optional setting which specifies the Rlogin protocol.


specifies that you want to use the settings contained in the Telnet Settings file settings.hts. The file specification should include the complete path to the file (for example, c:\user\sparc.hts). If you do not specify a file extension, WyseTerm automatically assigns the .hts extension.


is the name or IP address of the host to which you want to connect.


if you specify a host, you can also specify the port# (in decimal value) for the host to which you want to connect. If you do not specify a port# or a settings.hts file on the command line, WyseTerm uses the default port number of 23.

/s script.ebx

is the name of a Hummingbird Basic script file.


"c:\ home directory\htelnet @vt220.hts sparc 23 /s login.ebx"

If the path includes a directory name that includes a space, enclose the path with quotation marks. You must also include the .exe extension to htelnet. For example,

"c:\Program Files\ home directory\htelnet.exe" @"c:\ USER\
sparc.hts" sparc 23 /s login.ebx
