Octel 250 console access

Octel 250 console access

I saw in another post where someone suggested using Wyse 50 terminal emulation with Procomm.  I don't have procomm so I am using PuTTY and thought it would be very similar. The session displays the main screen from the Octel 250 okay but I am not able to send keyboard commands. I get 2f for every keystroke.  I have the keyboard emulation to vt100 and under connection data I tried wyse50 for terminal-type string to no avail.

Does anyone use PuTTY to connect to their Octel 250 and if so, could you share the config settings?

Thanks - Jim

I don't use Putty but try tvi920 if it has it.  Otherwise you can change the Octel to use VT100 as the terminal type but you will need to access it of course to do that.

Thanks Ken.  I wasn't able to get PuTTY to work but I did download a trial copy of secureCRT which works fine.  I may try to change the emulation to vt100 so I can use PuTTY and I won't have to buy the full version of secureCRT.  Thanks again!
