set term not doing anything

I do :
$ set term tna0/perm/disconnect

But sh term/perm after this is still showing
No disconnect.

Why is the command not accepted ?

Wim,

TNA0: is a pseudo or template device. It will be used to clone TNA devices. I think the attribute gets lost again, when SET TERM deassigns it's channel to the device.

To get UCX/TCPIP to use virtual terminals, you need to use the correct mechanism, e.g.

$ DEFINE/SYS/EXEC TCPIP$TELNET_VTA TRUE

Then the TNA0 device will obtain the Disconnect attribute permanently.

Re: set term not doing anything

Then why is the command accepted for template devices ? Why the word template device while rta0 is not ? Why is rta0 marked "device set /NOAVAILABLE" ?

I found that with /perm the term is never (?) modified.

But if I don't use /perm, it executed /autobaud correctly. But directly after that /noautobaud was not executed correctly.

Wim, confused.

Wim,

try to experiment with 'real' devices (e.g. OPA0:, TXA0: etc.). They should behave as you expect.

The pseudo devices have their own drivers and the rules depend on how the layered product (DECnet or TCPIP) maintains those devices.

change your terminal type to VTA and set system parametr TTY_DEFCHAR2 to %X21002(135170). Terminal VTA will be disconected every time.

Re: set term not doing anything

Jiri,

for TELNET terminals, you'll also have to do additional steps (depending on your TCPIP stack):

e.g. for HP TCPIP:

$ DEFINE/SYS/EXEC TCPIP$TELNET_VTA "TRUE"
$ DEFINE/SYS/EXEC TCPIP$TELNET_RTA "TRUE"

When I write "change your terminal type to VTA" I mean "$ DEFINE/SYS/EXEC TCPIP$TELNET_VTA "TRUE"
