Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Has anyone tried to access the Definity through HyperTerminal with any success??  If so, how did you do it?


RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

You can do it but it doesn't have the use of the function keys. However you you can use escape sequences.

Cancel      escOP
Refresh     escOQ
Enter       escOR
Clear Field escOS
Help        escOT
Choices     escOU
Next Page   escOV
Prev Page   escOW

This should allow you to use hyperterminal it is really anoying using the escape sequences though. ENJOY!!!

RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Thank You Colby007, I'll try this out.  Guess I'll have to carry around a cheat sheet.


RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

If you log in with the VT220 terminal setting, you can use the Page Up and Page Down buttons as I recall.  I think that the arrow keys work as well.  Set your Hyperterminal for VT100 emulation.

Escape sequences for the VT220 emulation are:

    Help            Esc[28~
    Previous Page   Esc[5~
    Next Page       Esc[6~
    Cancel          Esc[3~
    Execute         Esc[29~
    Previous Field  Esc[31~
    Next Field      Esc[32~
    Clear Field     Esc[33~
    Refresh         Esc[34~
    Next Form       Esc[4~
    Up Arrow        Esc[A
    Down Arrow      Esc[B
    Right Arrow     Esc[C
    Left Arrow      Esc[D
    Update Form     Esc[1~

How would I go about typing these in?


RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Hello joel not sure about the VT200 escape sequences but for the 4410 sequences just hit escapeand then the letters corresponding to the command you want. Not sure about if they have to be in CAPS or not been a long time since I used them.

RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

Hi Guys,

If you go ahead and use 4410 emulation, you should be OK.  What I find best is to use ASA and then use terminal emulation (they seem to have the key settings all done up correctly) but if you can't get ahold of ASA, then any terminal emulation program should work fine if it has tektronix 4410.

RE: Access Definity With HyperTerminal???

I used hyperterminal a few times here are the settings

bps - 9600
db - 8
pa - no
sb- 1
fc - xon  

chose your com port    also once your in chose your terminal type
