UNIX® Telnet Connection Support

Rocket PASSPORT supports the telnet host access features defined in the IETF Telnet specifications, DEC VT52, DEC VT100, VT220 and VT420 Programmer's Reference manuals. Telnet terminal emulation uses the TCP/IP Internet protocol for communication between a telnet client and a telnet server. Rocket PASSPORT is compatible with all DEC and UNIX® hosts that adhere to these specifications. Both 7-bit and 8-bit VT emulation are supported.

Rocket PASSPORT provides a method to specify the text string used for the Telnet device type. Rocket PASSPORT uses the standard telnet device types "VT52", "VT100", "VT220" and "VT420". However, some VT hosts may require a non-standard telnet device type such as "DEC-VT220". Auto-reconnect is a configurable option that can automatically re-establish the emulator session after a telnet logoff is performed. Hot back up for connection to alternate IP host names is also provided.
