SOL Parameters

The Redirection Sample Console GUI launches the PuTTY* Terminal Emulator when opening an SOL session.   Beginning in Release 9.5, the Aljex client of the PuTTY Terminal Emulator is used.  To ensure that the application can find the PuTTY executable, either place the putty.exe file in the same directory as the application or set the PATH environment variable to point to its location. The putty.exe is included in the SDK in the Bin directory.

After the application launches PuTTY, configure its settings as follows:

1.  Right-click the PuTTY window title bar, and select Change Settings....

2. Select Window and set Columns = 100 and Rows = 30.

3. Select Terminal and change both Local Echo and Local Line Editing to Force Off.

4. Select Terminal-Keyboard and change the sequence sent by the Function keys and keypad to be UTF-8 and the sequence sent by the Backspace key to be Control-H.

5. Optionally, select Session and Save to save these settings for future sessions.

6. Click Apply for the settings to take effect.

To use the Windows Telnet client instead of PuTTY, set the variable "TERM_CMD" at the top of the MCSOL.cpp file to be "TELNET_CMD", instead of "PUTTY_CMD". In this case, make sure that the Windows Telnet client is installed on your system.

Note that this application does not implement a Telnet server. As a result, the behavior of the Telnet client, which expects to operate opposite a server, may not be what is expected (for example, display issues relating to local echo).

Parameter

Value or Description

Client TX Buffering Timeout

The client transmit buffering timeout in milliseconds for this session (see definition of the SOLTout struct).

Client TX Overflow Timeout

The client transmit overflow timeout in milliseconds for this session (see definition of the SOLTout struct).

Client HB Interval

The interval between two consecutive client Heartbeat messages in milliseconds for this session (see definition of the SOLTout struct).

Client RX Timeout

The client receive timeout in milliseconds for this session (see definition of the SOLTout struct).

Client FIFO RX Flush Timeout

The client FIFO receive flush timeout in milliseconds for this session (see definition of the SOLTout struct).

Loopback

Select this check box to enable the SOL loopback.

Start SOL

Click to open the session. A Telnet window will open when the session is established. Use it to transfer the SOL data. The sample application communicates via a TCP socket using a pre-defined port number specified in the sample application. Because of this, only a single instance of the sample application can open an SOL session at a time.

Stop SOL

Click to close the session.
