E1124: Ggate/Telnet, backspace interpretation

Product: Ggate/Telnet
Platform: All
Status: Fixed for 6.4, fix available for 6.3
Last updated: 2006-07-05 10:16:33

By default the Ggate/Telnet manager supports the use of Backspace to
cancel the previous character. This is in order to make life easier
for human clients who are responding to terminal manager dialog, or
engaged in application dialog in a Telnet session, and need to
correct typing errors.

If the Telnet client is non-human, or human talking to an application
that supports backspace itself, and needs to transmit all
characters, including backspace then the behaviour can be modified
using the parameter -TELBS ON/off.

If the parameter is used as a Ggate parameter it will apply to all
Telnet sessions. If this parameter is used as a Gline parameter
supplied to a CONAME used by Telnet clients, then it will apply only
to Telnet clients using the CONAME.

To make this parameter practical in situations where some Telnet
clients are human and need backspace support, and others are machines
needing to transmit backspace, the Ggate/Telnet support has been
extended to accept the Telnet terminal type as a CONAME if it is not
recognized as a supported terminal type.

Note that if used as a Gline parameter, it will only apply when the
CONAME is analyzed, this means that you can correct typing errors
with backspace in Telnet secondary dialog prior to the choice of
CONAME in a connect command.
