Indigo Terminal Emulation Protocols

Screencast

A screencast demonstrating the terminal emulation capabilities is available. Click here to see the video.

Indigo supports the following terminal emulation protocols:

Terminal Emulation Protocol

None

ANSI

VT100

Linux

Depending on the device or server/host that you may be connecting to, it may require a terminal emulation protocol for the data to be rendered on screen correctly. 
Terminal emulation protocols include special instruction commands in the data transmissions that are not intended to be rendered on screen, but rather control how data should be represented on screen.    

Using a terminal emulation protocol may provide an enhanced terminal experience over a raw data emulation.  

It is important to note that for Indigo to render the text using a terminal emulation protocol, it must be configured in the Terminal Emulation View Mode.   
The standard view mode will only render the raw data received and will ignore any special control and command sequences specified in the terminal emulation protocol.
If you select a terminal emulation protocol when creating a new terminal session, Indigo will automatically display using the Terminal Emulation view mode by default. 

Tip

If connecting to network routers or other network appliances, usually VT100 is the recommended terminal emulation option.
If connecting to a Unix, Linux, or Apple server/workstation, usually the Linux Emulation option is the recommended terminal emulation option.
If connecting to an embedded device, usually no terminal emulation is needed.  

To configure a session's terminal emulation settings after a session has been created, please edit the Session Properties and and select the Terminal Emulation Settings tab.
