Re: Setting term type in HPUX

Use "hp" or "vt100", this depends on your terminal settings. Default is hp.

Hope this helps!

Re: Setting term type in HPUX

export TERM=70096
or
export TERM=700/96

I amnot sure if there was a "/" or not but my gut feeling is, there was not. Try both and see which one works

Re: Setting term type in HPUX

Hi Inex,

check your term by

echo $TERM

You can set the terminal by

export TERM=vt100
export TERM=hp

What about a c1099-62000 terminal?
I tried these settings but that did not work.

Re: Setting term type in HPUX

if the 700/96 terminal is set up correctly you shouldn't have to do anything - there's a line in /etc/profile which takes care of this:

eval `ttytype -s -a`

whenever you login through the 700/96 terminal that command is going to be run and it should report back a TERM type of 70096 or hp

To see what the 700/96 terminal is currently reporting as its terminal type just login through it and run:

ttytype

I have not heard about this type of terminal for quite while and as far as I can remember this was a terminal for HP3000 systems. I would not be surprised if the firmware on this puppy is tweaked for those systems and can not play well HPUX boxes. I have never seen a terminal setting for this variety. You might consider either getting a new and more compatible terminal or repurpose an old laptop with the windows' built-in terminal emulator hyper-terminal in serial mode which can do a pretty good job as a vt100 terminal.
