Terminal Files From 16-bit Windows May Not Maintain Settings


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


When you use Terminal files (.TRM) created from 16-bit Windows 3.0 or 3.1 in Windows NT, some settings may be altered.

Windows NT may alter the settings for the Data Bits and Connector. The settings for the Baud Rate, Stop Bits, Flow Control, Parity, Parity Check, and Carrier Detect should be maintained correctly.

For example, if the Data Bits were set to 8 and the Connector was set to COM2, Windows NT may alter the Data Bits to 6 and attempt to set the Connector to Telnet, which will cause the following error message:

Terminal failed to open the telnet session. Please use the services option in control panel to make sure that the telnet service is started.


To eliminate any possible problems or error messages, double check the settings for the Terminal file in Windows NT and then save it with Windows NT Terminal.
