Telnet Connection Settings
The screenshot below depicts the TELNET connection settings.
(For more information on other session property configuration tabs, please see Session Properties.)
The following Telnet configuration settings are available to properly setup your device connection and terminal session.
|Auto Connect||If this option is enabled, then the terminal session will attempt to establish a connection immediately when opened in Indigo.|
The telnet server/host should be provided in this configuration field.
The telnet server/host port can be used if a custom telnet port must be provided.
|Active Telnet Negotiation|
In a Telnet connection, there are two types of data passed between the client and the server/host: actual text, and telnet negotiations for Telnet protocol specific extra features.
Indigo can use two different strategies for negotiation:
Indigo defaults to Active Telnet Negotiation because if both Indigo and the server/host are operating in a passive mode, then the telnet negotiation will never take place.
Telnet Connection Authentication Options
When using a Telnet connection, Indigo can provide two options for automated password authentication.
(The Telnet protocol intrinsically supports authentication as part of the protocol.)
This option allows you to set the session authentication method. For Telnet connections, Indigo supports the following options:
|Wait For Prompt||If this wait for prompt option is enabled, Indigo will wait until the prompt text is received before sending user credentials to the connected session.|
If this option is not enabled, then Indigo will automatically attempt to send user credentials when the connection is established.
(This option is only available when using the Password (manual) authentication method.)
|Username||This is the user name text that Indigo will submit when attempting to authenticate.|
|Password||This is the password text that Indigo will submit when attempting to authenticate.|
