Change the font size of a dtterm terminal

I log into my HP DCE environment through reflectionX. When I open a new dtterm, the font size is very small. I try to use Options/Font Size to change it. It does not work. Is there a way to increase the font size of a dtterm through some command or some config file?
nothing can stop me

Re: Change the font size of a dtterm terminal

You want to use the -fn flag to the dtterm command, but the font you specify must be a valid font alias. Font alias (in 10.20 at least) are listed in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias

I forgot to post an example:

/usr/bin/X11/dtterm -fn 10x20

You have to do that in Reflection configuration, I usually set the parameter in ReflectionX I have attached the .bmp (seeing it is a lot easier)

You have to do that in Reflection configuration, I usually set the parameter in ReflectionX wizard I set the Parameters -fn 10x16 -sb -ls -display %IP#% and the file name /usr/openwin/bin/xterm --I have attached the .bmp (seeing it is a lot easier)

nothing wrong with me that a few lines of code cannot fix!
