Re: [SPAM][midatlanticretro] Re: AT&T 7300/UNIX PC RS232 terminal setup
- Try CTRL-M (carriage Return)Dave, thanks for your feedback here. I will standby for your notes on the /etc/inittab file edits & configuration.Neil, I'd have to say that in this case, you are absolutely correct as far as getting this to work. The full handshake null modem configuration worked! See the adapter I used here: http://bit.ly/Vx8BfrHere is what I have on my terminal now: The prompt appears boot-up of the UNIX PC, simultaneously with the prompt appearing on the UNIX PC built-in monitor:[SERIAL/DIRECT] CONNECTED TO PORT com1 (9600-8N1)Welcome to the AT&T UNIX pcPlease login: ajPlease type the terminal name and press RETURN: ?The following terminals are supported for use with the Office windows andmenus.

When asked:Please type the terminal name and press RETURN:I answer "vt100"See http://bit.ly/XtwhCVThe arrow keys of my keyboard move the cursor up and down through the menu, but the "enter" key only moves the cursor to the next menu item, it does not send the command to "accept" the selected option. ON the UNIX PC, there are separate Enter and Return keys, but not so on my modern PC keyboard which I use with the terminal emulator running on Windows 7.Does anyone have any ideas what setting I might look into changing to assign a key to send a code that the UNIX PC interprets as "enter"?Thanks everyone, this is a lot of fun!-AJ

or even ^M^J. Sorry I haven't had to do that in a while.
