CRT descriptionA 32-bit terminal emulator (VT100/102/220, ANSI, SCO ANSI and Wyse 50/60 support)CRT is a robust, configurable 32-bit terminal emulator created for Internet and intranet use with support for Telnet, rlogin, serial, and other protocols.
CRT is ideal for connecting to remote systems running UNIX and VMS as well as the many BBSs and databases that are now available via the Internet.
CRT's Windows interface is easy to use and offers pinpoint control of session behavior with extensive customization options. The Quick Connect feature connects to UNIX, VMS, and Windows servers by entering only a hostname. Emulation support includes VT100, VT102, VT220, basic Wyse 50/60, ANSI and SCO ANSI, Linux console, and Xterm.
All of CRT's emulations support ANSI color. Other features include support for SOCKS and generic firewalls, transparent printing, and ZModem file transfers. With the Activator utility, manage sessions from the system tray instead of the taskbar.
Or use session folders to manage hundreds of sessions. Dialer support for Windows 95/98 and NT through Windows TAPI allows saving dialup connections in session information. CRT's ActiveX scripting support lets you automate remote tasks with VBScript, JScript, PerlScript, or other Windows scripting engines.
Here are some key features of "CRT":
· Script recorder
Quickly create a script to automate routines using the new script recorder, which records keystrokes, including function keys, and then generates a VB script.
· Improved auto session
With "Use auto session" enabled, you can now select a single session, multiple sessions, or folders of sessions to automatically connect on startup.
· Improved ANSI color
with color schemes When using ANSI color, you can now select a color scheme to replace the standard white foreground and black background.
· Expanded logging options
with custom log data Custom log data gives you the ability to specify strings to be logged upon connect, disconnect, and on each line. Parameter substitutions for session and date information are supported.
· Additional tab support
Display the list of tabs on the menu using the MENU_TAB_LIST1 custom menu item. A new script function, GetScriptTab, returns the tab from which the script was started.
· Windows Vista support
CRT has been tested under Windows Vista, so when you are ready to move to Vista, CRT will be compatible.
· Wide range of terminal emulation
VT100, VT102, VT220, ANSI, SCO ANSI, Wyse 50/60, Xterm, and Linux console, with support for ANSI color in all emulations.
· Xterm extensions
Supports the Xterm extensions for changing the title bar and for sending basic mouse events to the remote host. CRT also delivers 256-color Xterm support.
· Character attributes
Full terminal emulation support for character attributes including VT line drawing symbols, bold, underline, reverse and blink, and double-width and double-height fonts.
· Multi-byte font support
Support for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean multi-byte character sets.
· 80/132-column support
Supports automatic switching between 80 and 132-column display. Different fonts can be configured for the 80 and 132-column modes.
· National Replacement
Character Set Terminal sessions display international characters using NRCS if supported by the host application.
· Configurable rows and columns
CRT supports a wide range of configuration from the standard 24 rows, 80 columns to as many as 1024 columns.
· Window size change
When using RLogin or Telnet servers supporting the NAWS extension, CRT will inform the remote system anytime the window is resized and the rows and columns change. For applications like vi and Emacs, this guarantees that CRT is always in sync with the remote system without manually tweaking the settings on the remote system.
· Create keyboard mappings
Map keyboard combinations on a per session basis. Create mappings for any key combination - not just function keys - without an external keymap file.
· Flexible keyboard mappings
Create customized accelerators by mapping user-specified keyboard combinations to send a user-specified string, run a script, perform a menu or scrollbar operation, or send a Telnet command.
· Keymap editor
Graphical editor provides an easy mechanism for creating keymap files that can be shared between users and systems.
· Named sessions
Create sessions from the Connect dialog to define specific preferences for different hosts or for different purposes on the same host.
· Named firewalls
You can name different firewall configurations and use them on an individual session basis.
· Color schemes
Seven predefined terminal color schemes provided. Create and save additional color schemes with customized foreground and background colors.
· Session log file option
Session logging to a file can be toggled on and off from the menu. CRT can be configured to start logging upon connecting to the remote site. Dynamic log filename generation, with support for substitution of date, time, and environment variables. Custom log data gives you the ability to specify strings to be logged upon connect, disconnect, and on each line. Parameter substitutions for session and date information are supported.
· 32,000-line scrollback
The scrollback buffer can be configured to save up to 32,000 lines. Being able to review the history of the current session can be a life saver. From the scrollback, both copying to the clipboard and printing are supported.
· Emacs mode
If you commonly use Emacs, you can configure your session to use the ALT key as the meta key.
· Chat window
Provides a mechanism for composing a line (or more) of text before sending to the remote system. The chat window also supports history, which allows previous commands to be viewed, edited, and sent.
Ease of Use
· Tabbed sessions
Tabbed sessions reduce desktop clutter and make it easy to switch between sessions. Launch new tabs in the current window from a URL or command line.
· Activator tray utility
The Activator utility allows minimizing any session window to the system tray, cutting down on desktop and taskbar clutter.
· Session management
Sessions can be organized in nested folders. Organize hundreds of named sessions using standard copy and paste or drag and drop. Folders or multiple sessions can be launched in tabs with a single click. With "Use auto session" enabled, select a single session, multiple sessions, or folders of sessions to automatically connect on startup.
· Simple automated logons
The initial logon username and password can be configured from the Script dialog in order to automate logons quickly without the need to learn a scripting language.
· Quick Connect
The Quick Connect dialog allows you to connect to a host with just a server name - no configuration required. Optionally, you can save the connection for future use.
· Clipboard copy and paste
Select terminal text by row and column area. With the Auto Copy option on, text is automatically copied to clipboard after the text is selected. Quickly paste text into a session by using the option to paste on right or middle mouse click
CRT can be configured to send a user-defined sequence after a specified interval to eliminate being disconnected for being idle.
· SOCKS v4 and v5
Support for both SOCKS v4 and v5 for use with Telnet. When using SOCKS v5, optional firewall authentication is supported.
· TIS and Wingate proxy
Generic proxies from the TIS firewall toolkit and Wingate are supported for use with Telnet.
