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 emulation modes.

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.
