Does Screensurfer Support Terminal Model 4 (43X80) ? If yes, how do I configure/use it ? A lot of our screens are 43 lines.

Comment Build 1.3.14, which is in test now will enable you to specify a terminal screen size using the registry editor so that the screenrows attribute can be changed from 24 to 43.

This will require some testing on your part, I'm afraid, as we have no access to Mod4 test applications.

That said, once you have Screensurfer reading the datastreams from your host that work with 43 line terminals, you can send your \screensurfer\hostserver\surfdiag.log file to us to enable us to reproduce and fix any issues you may encounter.

The version with user-modifiable screen sizes should be available later today--we will post an append to this ticket when it is.

In order to see the lines above 24, you will need to create a template section which includes a <TEAREA that goes above 24, however :)

Comment Version supporting user-defined rows and columns is now available at ftp://ftp.ieinc2.com/pub/surfer/t1_3_14.zip.

Download this file, which contains "ielua.exe" -- replace the ielua.exe in your \screensurfer\bin directory with the copy in the zip file to update to test build 1.3.14.

To update your maximum screen size-- run Screensurfer once after updating. This will create two new values under the Screensurfer registry config key.

With the registry editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intelligent Environments\Screensurfer\Config:

Set the value "ScreenRows" to (decimal) 43.

Stop and restart Screensurfer. Your maximum screen size is now 43 rows...let us know how it works for you. Remember to either change the <TEAREA in global.default to accomodate more rows, or recognize one of the 43 row screens and use a <TEAREA 1 1 43 80> to see how it works.

Comment I install the t_1_3_14.zip and change the registery. The screen can give me an area of 43 lines by putting TEAREA 1 1 43 80 But when I try to access a 43 line screen I get the following error: INVALID MAP SIZE - TERMINAL MUST BE SET UP TO DISPLAY 43 LINES How does t_1_3_14 support Terminal Model 4 ?

Comment We will add another attribute to the registry that will be your TN3270 terminal type--it is currently accessing with 3278-2 which is hard-coded. Will let you know when the user-definable version is ready.

Comment You can now set the terminal type for TN3270 connections.

While we will be adding to the console settings page, for now you need to perform an update to the registry.

New build is ready at ftp://ftp.ieinc2.com/pub/surfer/t1_3_14.zip: download and replace ielua.exe, then start and stop the new ielua.exe once, as in the prior instructions.

You will now have a registry entry TNTermType, which has a default of "IBM-3278-2".

Change this in regedit to "IBM-3278-4" and let us know how it works once you restart SS...

Comment Downloaded t1_3_14.zip & changed registry to IBM-3278-4. Screens with 43 lines are displayed properly.
