IntelliTerm



 


There are some command line options that can be used to help you automate certain tasks such as starting a single connection to a specified host or loading a specified profile. Options are added to the program properties for the Distinct IntelliTerm icon on your desktop.

If you are running Windows 3.x you modify this using the Program Item dialog box which is displayed by choosing Properties in the Program Manager’s File Menu.

In Windows 95 or NT these options are set by first creating a shortcut and then accessing the settings by right-clicking the shortcut in the Windows Explorer. The commands should be entered after the program name in the target text box.

Program options are added to the end of the command line. Each option must be separated by a space. Option letters may be in lower or upper case since the system is not case sensitive.

The following table lists the available command line options:

Available Options

Function

-!

This option disables the requirement of running Windows in the Enhanced Mode and changes to the Windows Standard Mode. (Windows version only)

-C

This option enables a debugging mode where some network tracing messages are written to the file ITERM.TRC. The file will be in the current working directory. This option is usually accompanied by the -D option.

-D

This option enables dumping of inbound and outbound data when tracing is enabled via the -C option.

-H hostname [,Port]

This option overrides the gateway name or host address when opening a session with a specific profile using the -P option. The -H option is ignored when the -P option is not specified.
If you specify a profile using the -P option, then the IP address and port used with the -H option override the profile values. If no profile name is specified, then the profile name DEFAULT is used to open the session.
Use the -H option when you want to initiate connections from other applications such as Gopher. A sample command line syntax is shown below. The %i must be replaced with the destination IP name or address by your application.
ITERM32.EXE -H %i

-I

This option instructs Distinct IntelliTerm not to start any profiles saved with the Auto Start option. This is useful to start the emulator in interactive mode.

-P profname [profname] ...

This option starts one or more sessions using the profile(s) specified. This option ignores the Auto Connect option and starts only the profiles specified. This is very useful if you want to create icons that connect to specific hosts. If you create an icon in the Startup group to automatically start a session to a host when Windows is loaded, make sure that you only install one icon. If you want to auto start more than one profile, list the multiple profiles on one command line. Do not install multiple icons. Example:
ITERM32.EXE -P VMCMS TSO CICS

-U

This option can be used to close all hidden windows and unload the emulator currently loaded in memory. This option is only useful to shut down the emulator after creating hidden connections through EHLLAPI. Specify this option alone.

-V

This option is used to force the default session to VT mode. This is useful if you are spawning the program from another program and want to create a VT session regardless of the setting of the [Default] profile.

-3

This option is used to force the default session to 3270 mode. This is useful if you are spawning the program from another program and want to create a 3270 session regardless of the setting of the [Default] profile.

-5

This option is used to force the default session to 5250 mode. This is useful if you are spawning the program from another program and want to create a 5250 session regardless of the setting of the [Default] profile.
