Connection Banner- Display a customer banner upon connection to the host. The connection banner is useful for displaying security and legal notices as well as other information that the user should see BEFORE logging on to the host.

Remote Registration Utility- In some instances you may need to apply the serial number from a remote location. The Georgia SoftWorks Remote Registration Utility provides this capability. The can be done when upgrading to a new version of permanently activating a trial version of the software.

Special Bell Processing- Configure the bell so it sounds on the device, not the server. The Georgia SoftWorks Telnet/SSH Server for Windows can intercept a special character written to the application's screen and send a bell character to the terminal(in the place of the intercepted character). The special character and the location are defined using Registry Values.

Special Bell Processing when using SAPConsole - The Georgia SoftWorks Telnet/SSH Server for Windows provides special bell processing for SAPConsole users. For expected Bell Operation after Session Saver Reconnects, SAPConsole must be launched via the Gswbell utility. Use the appropriate command for your UTS edition (32-bit or 64-bit) Support for correct bell operation evener after a Session Saver Reconnect.

Configurable Port Numbers - Use an alternative to port 23

Configure Multiple Telnet Ports - Configure up to 100 Telnet ports. The capability exists to configure up to 100 ports for the Georgia SoftWorks Telnet Server to listen on. Use the etc/services file to configure port names gstnet1 through gstnet100.

TTY Name - The default port number for telnet is port 23 and NO configuration is required unless you want to change or add telnet ports. The Georgia SoftWorks UTS creates a tty name on a per session basis. This is available for viewing or use by customer created programs.

Default Domain Environment Variable - Eliminate prompting for a domain when the user is connecting to the SSH/Telnet server.

Default Domain Override- The user may override the default domain when using a 3rd party client when connecting via Telnet or SSH. When a default domain is set the GSW UTS does not prompt for the domain and automatically applies the domain set in the registry. If the user needs to override the default domain, then the optional syntax described below can be used when logging on to the UTS to select a different domain. The domain can be specified (along with the username) when the user is prompted for the Windows User Name. The domain override syntax is different depending if you are connecting via Telnet or SSH.

Launch GUI applications on the server- Launch a Graphical Interface (GUI) application on the server desktop from a Telnet/SSH session by using the utilities gs_gui and gs_engui. The application will display on the server desktop.

Client Scroll Bars- You may enable scroll bars on the Windows client window. This is accomplished by changing the buffer size for the DOS window.
