The Answerback string is set in the GSW ConnectBot Host connection configuration.
This is the only configuration required on the client for answerback.
An enhanced method of obtaining the Answerback is available when using the GSW SSH/Telnet
Server (UTS). The application running on the GSW UTS accesses the answerback value using the
server-side environment variable gwtn_answerback.
This does not use any screen locations and the display is not impacted as with many Answerback
solutions. An environment variable is much easier to read than a screen location.
Following is an example of how to configure the GSW UTS to obtain the Answerback from the
The Server-side configuration consists of a lightweight utility (answerback utility) and logon
scripting (example below). When the GSW ConnectBot connects to the UTS, the logon script is
executed and the answerback utility obtains the Answerback string from the GSW ConnectBot.
It then inserts it in the environment variable gwtn_answerback for the application to access.
