Windx to access mas90 like program on centos over SSH
« on: November 28, 2019, 03:19:01 PM »
Hi,

We are running an accounting system similar to the old mas90 character program.  I need to be able to access the sessions over tcp/ip via ssh in windows using ansi or xterm as the terminal.

I can’t figure out how to set the terminal values so the display and keyboard is correct.

Thanks.

Are you wanting to use WindX or another terminal emulator?

For WindX we generally suggest setting TERM to "winterm" -- however native Linux applications will generally need this set to "ansi"

I have used other terminal emulators, which works fine because I can set the terminal to ansi, or scoansi.  The problem is I can’t print using the windows printers, only what is attached to the cantos box.

I want to use windx via ssh, but when the program runs, the keyboard and term are all off. I don’t know where to set the TERM value; that’s where I need help.

Thanks in advance.

I got it figured out.

I set the TERM value to ansi in the .profile file.

Depending if you log in or ssh in, certain profile files are used or not used.
