Establishing a New Rlogin Protocol Connection


Establishing a New Rlogin Protocol Connection

The Connect dialog box opens automatically when you start WyseTerm. But, with new connections you should close the Connect dialog box and set the Terminal emulation mode first. If you change the terminal emulation mode after you make a connection, WyseTerm clears the information in the Telnet window. To set the terminal emulation mode before you connect, click Cancel in the Connect dialog box. This returns you to the WyseTerm window.

To establish a new Rlogin protocol connection:

  1. On the Settings menu, select the terminal emulation mode. Click for more information
  2. On the Connection menu, click Connect.
  3. In the WyseTerm display window, select the Rlogin protocol.
  4. Fill in the required boxes on the Host tab:
    1. In the Host box, type the name or IP address of the host machine.
    2. To change the default port number of 513, specify the new port number in the Port box.
    3. To load an existing settings file, type the file name in the Terminal Setup File box, or click Browse to find an existing file.
  5. Fill in the required boxes on the General tab. Click for more information
  6. Fill in the required boxes on the Rlogin tab:
    1. In the Host Login Name box, type your user name on the host.
    2. Click Apply to save your connection configuration.

If you plan on making regular connections to the host, create a shortcut that stores your connection configurations.
