Product Overview

Communications software for UNIX and Linux systems

TERM for UNIX/Linux is a powerful multi-platform communications software solution for UNIX systems. Users can communicate with any UNIX or PC system on the network, Internet, or by modem. This is accomplished with precise terminal emulations including VT220, SCO ANSI, WYSE 60 and more. Asynchronous protocols and scripting tools permit users to automate tasks and facilitate fast, error-free file transfers.

TERM for UNIX/Linux allows terminal or workstation users access to any modem attached to the host, to communicate with any networked UNIX system across a LAN or the Internet, and to transfer files.

Terminals Emulated

IBM: 3101
Digital: VT52, VT100, VT102, VT220, VT320
Wyse/TVI: Wyse 50, Wyse 60, Televideo TVI912, 925, 950
Other: ADM1, PCTERM, TTY, Wang 2110

Advanced File Transfer

TERM for UNIX/Linux gives users a variety of file transfer options using advanced asynchronous file transfer protocols. Its high-performance, proprietary WTERMCRC and TERMCRC protocols allow for fast, reliable, re-startable file transfers. With WTERMCRC interrupted file transfers and lost modem connections won't result in lost money. The industry-standard protocols in TERM for UNIX/Linux, like Kermit and X, Y, Zmodem, offer compatibility with users and systems running other communications facilities. Line-by-line file transfers allow files to be uploaded and downloaded to any networked or serial system. TERM for UNIX/Linux also includes a complete file transfer server developed with TERM Scripting Language (TSL), Century's application development language.

Precise Emulations

UNIX-to-UNIX communications are facilitated by TERM for UNIX/Linux's terminal emulations. A terminal using TERM for UNIX/Linux can run applications developed for other terminals. For example, users with VT220 terminals can use TERM for UNIX/Linux to run applications developed for Wyse 60 terminals. TERM supports 12 complete terminal emulations.

Automate Tasks

With TERM's Script Language, TERM users can automate repetitive tasks. TSL lets users build turnkey applications compatible with any system running TERM for UNIX/Linux: user menus, terminal emulations, transparent logins to remote systems, etc. Multi-platform support is built into the script. TSL's prewritten commands allow for off-hour polling, calling remote sites at night when phone rates are lower, automatic downloading of daily sales reports, etc. The interactive learn mode records your actions and converts them to a script, automating the development of your custom applications.
