Distinct IntelliTerm provides a truly integrated solution to IBM and DEC
terminal emulation. From a single interface users can open up terminal
sessions to all the different machines on their network. Distinct IntelliTerm
operates over the Telnet protocol providing multiple session support to
different hosts or gateways (up to 26 concurrent sessions). It includes
Distinct TN3270E and TN5250 emulation for IBM mainframes and AS/400 hosts,
with support for 3179G vector graphics and 3279 S3G. It also includes VT52
through VT420 emulation, for connectivity to hosts such as UNIX or VMS.
Below, we outline some of the major features of these different terminal
TN3270E mode includes support for model 2,3,4 or 5 terminal emulation,
extended data streams, 3179G and 3279S3G graphics support, IND$FILE file
transfer, definable hotspots, definable keyboard and macros, scripting
language fully compatible with Visual Basic for Application(VBA), and drag
and drop capabilities for easy text editing.
TN5250 mode includes support for model 2 (24 lines by 80 columns) and model
7 (27 lines by 132 columns). In general, most of the features available
in the 3270 emulator are also available in the 5250 emulator.
VT mode provides VT52, VT100, VT220, VT320 and VT420 emulation with many
additional features such as unlimited scrollback with search capabilities,
ANSI support for color extensions, definable hotspots, definable keyboard
and macros, VBA advanced scripting language, OLE Automation Server, DDE
and much more.
Distinct IntelliTerm comes with a powerful set of tools for desktop application
development that include DDE, EHLLAPI, HLLAPI, WinHLLAPI, a full-featured
scripting language compatible with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
and a Visual Basic Toolkit.
Distinct IntelliTerm is available for both the Windows platform as well
as the Windows 95 and Windows NT platforms. Although the interface remains
the same across these platforms, the different versions are engineered
to take advantage of the particular platform that they are designed to
run on. Being a fully integrated package, many features are shared by all
emulators. Other features are specific to a particular type of emulation,
and therefore will not be seen in emulation sessions of a different type.
Distinct IntelliTerm requires a Windows Sockets compliant protocol stack
to be up and running before you can use it. If you are running the Windows
version, you will also have received a copy of the popular Distinct TCP/IP
Windows Sockets Run Time. Please install this first, following the instructions
in the manual that came with it. If you are running the version for Windows
95 or NT, then you need to make sure that you have preconfigured TCP/IP
on your system.
