GSW UTS Legacy Support
UTS/SSH2/FIPS
Full DOS Legacy Support The GSW UTS for Windows provides full support for DOS Legacy applications. When you run DOS legacy application using the GSW UTS it is as if you are running them locally. DOS Character Mode Color graphics including the line and box characters are supported.
MOUSE When using the GSW SSH2/Telnet clients the Mouse works as if you are sitting locally at the server. On Mobile devices that support a stylus, it works as expected also.
DOS Character Mode Color Graphics DOS Character Mode Color Graphics is fully supported. This includes the full range of DOS characters. All of the 256 possible background/foreground color combinations are supported.
Function Keys The function keys work as expected. With the Georgia SoftWorks Universal Terminal Server for Windows the function keys operate as if you are sitting at the server and running the application locally. For 3rd Party clients the function keys are supported as per the emulation specified. Please note that some function keys are not supported by various emulations
Special Characters All characters with character codes between 0x00 through 0xFF are supported and displayed properly when using the Georgia SoftWorks SSH2/Telnet Clients and conforming third party client emulations.
ALT key support

When using GSW SSH2/Telnet clients, "ALT" keys are completely supported.

Many applications take advantage of the "Alt" key. However many keyboards and terminal emulations do not support the "Alt" key. The Georgia SoftWorks Universal Terminal Server for Windows allows the "Alt" key sequence to be transmitted to an application by providing a substitute key sequence (the Alt Prefix) for the "Alt" key. The default Alt Prefix is "Ctrl-b".

For example, in order to transmit "Alt-F" you will have to type

Ctrl-b and then f

(Depress Ctrl then b, release the keys and then depress f).

In order to really type in the AltPrefix character from the keyboard you will have to type it twice, like

Ctrl-b Ctrl-b

to get

Ctrl-b

A different Alt Prefix can be configured using "AltPrefix" parameter in the registry editor. The default value is set to two 0x02 which is the ASCII value of Ctrl-b, other values are as follows:

AltPrefix Value Key Sequence entered by the User

0x01

Ctrl-a

0x02

Ctrl-b

0x04

Ctrl-d

0x06

Ctrl-f

0x0e

Ctrl-n

0x0f

Ctrl-o

0x10

Ctrl-p

0x12

Ctrl-r

0x14

Ctrl-t

0x15

Ctrl-u

0x16

Ctrl-v

0x17

Ctrl-w

0x19

Ctrl-y

The key is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GS_Tnet\Parameters\AltPrefix

Control-C Support for all SSH2/Telnet clients

There are different expectations as to the function of the behavior when <control-c> is depressed. The Georgia SoftWorks Universal Terminal Server allows configuration of the behavior for <control-c> by setting an environment variable in a logon script.

The environment variable for the <control-c> behavior is:

gwtn_ctrl_c_mode

The modes of <control-c> behavior are:

  • key - control-c

    will be sent to the application as a character value of decimal 3

  • event - control-c

    will be sent to the application as a signal/event which can be trapped

  • auto - control-c

    The SSH2/Telnet server will attempt to get the application's <control-c> settings and send either event or key, whichever appears to be appropriate. Sometimes the SSH2/Telnet server will make the wrong choice and you will have to override eith an explicit setting. This is the default setting when the

    gwtn_ctrl_c_mode

    is not set.

For example to select Event Mode <control-c> behavior you would enter

set gwtn_ctrl_c_mode=event

in the Logon Script for a particular user.

Note: No spaces are allowed when setting environment variables.

 
Automatic Screen Sizing

You may place the Mode command in a logon script to set screen sizes. Please note that most UNIX Telnet/SSH2 clients default to 24 rows while Windows and DOS applications default to 25 rows. Thus you may have to adjust your UNIX SSH2/Telnet client row count settings to see all the rows of your Windows or DOS application. Alternatively you may need issue the

mode con: lines=24

command. Note: if you issue this command you will not see the last row of your application
