NAME¶sethost - Emulates a DEC VT100 terminal
SYNOPSIS¶sethost [options] nodename
[-Vh] [-e char]
DESCRIPTION¶sethost emulates a DEC VT100 terminal.
This application implements the CTERM protocol over DECnet for
connecting to a remote DECnet host emulating a DEC VT100 terminal.
dnlogin is a replacement for sethost with more compatibility features.
- -e <char>
- Set the exit character. By default this is ^]. You can specify the exit character as a control character by preceding it with a circumflex eg (^A means control-A) or as a number in decimal (default), octal (starting with a zero), or hexadecimal (preceded by 0x or 0X).
- -h -?
- Displays help for using the command.
- Show the version of the package that sethost was built with.
EXAMPLES¶Connect to remote VAX host named "mv3100".
HELPFUL HINTS¶The CTERM specifications available from Digital does not include how to setup VMS terminal characteristics, so the host cannot identify the capabilities of the session we are creating. The simplest workaround is to set the terminal capabilities manually upon login or including the following command in the login.com DCL procedure.
$ SET TERM/DEC_CRT
