NewDIALin P800 is a terminal emulator for the Sony-ericsson P800 and P900 series. The terminal engine, and
user interface are based on the successful newTELnet, and newDIALin 9200 products. The
dial-in connection is made via the mobile telephone built into the P800.
Terminal connections can be easily made via the GSM network to remote hosts, or network switches using newDIALin.
When logged into remote systems, entry of complicated commands can be drastically simplified by using the
"stored command" feature, or by using the command recall button.
All information can be simply entered when starting a call through a single dialog. In
this dialog data can be easily extracted from a Contact database, or manually entered.
The serial parameters (7, or 8 bit, etc) can also be selected at this time. All this data
will be stored in a history database, which can store up to 30 complete call entries. To
simplify selecting data from this history, the calls can be given names
under which they can be easily found.
One of the most important design considerations was ease of use, for this reason the
P800 menu buttons can be configured by
the user to allow easy entry of standard texts, or even program
functions. A standard text, or
escape sequence is entered in a very simple form, even control
characters can be included. The user can
therefore configure the complete screen for his optimal data entry
environment to reduce the amount of data he has to entere from the keyboard.
To further increase flexibility, the P800 "hot-Key" menus can be used as "hot keys". Normally these
are programmed to send the "function codes" F1 to F10. The codes can however
be changed to send any
text, or control sequence.
NewDIALin is a terminal emulator with extras. Normally when data disappears from
the terminal screen it is lost for ever, newDIALin however also includes a history buffer allowing
the user to look back at the last received text from the
remote host. He can even select and copy parts of this
history into the clipboard for use with other text programs.
The P800 or P900 screen is smaller than its terminal counterpart. This typically results
in the user having to scroll backwards and forwards to see the complete screen. Normal
scrollbars can be used for this. The scrollbars can even be completely
removed from the screen leaving a larger terminal area than before.
Another feature which can ease data entry is the "follow" cursor function. When this
is selected the program
will automatically scroll to follow the cursor. Depending on the
program running on the host, this can be an advantage or not. For
this reason, this function is normally placed on one of the buttons for easy access.
NewDIALin supports all standard ANSI, VT2xx, VT100, VT52, TVI950, WSYE 60 and ADM3A escape sequences.
The following codepages can be selected: ISO88591, IBM1252, UTF7, UTF8, GB12345 and GB2312.
All data can be traced into a logfile to help diagnose any communication problems. The cursor keys
(up, down, etc) are predefined for the selected standard, however it has often been found that the different
remote systems do not all stick by the standards. For this reason, the cursor escape sequences can be modified
for each mode, this allows a complete flexibility.
When configuring network switches or routers it is sometimes useful to be
able to capture, and replay the
data from the remote side. This can be done either by enabling the
tracing functions. This allows a very large amount of data
to stored. The data can then either be replayed, or copied
via PC-Suite to the PC at a later date. The other
possibility is to cut and paste the screen into another
application. This is a cut from a terminal screen,
and cannot therefore move move more data than is
being displayed. Data pasted into newDIALIN will be sent
directly to the remote partner via the GSM link, and has no
size limitation. This feature is often used to configure
switches, or routers with configuration data stored as files.
NewDIALin can be downloaded and fully tested for free. It is fully functional, but will
remind the user at regular intervals that
he should register. After 30 Days it will expire, and
not allow any more connections to be made. The
registration can be made simply online, and after the
registration you will receive the registration code via
email. This code should be entered into newDIALin,
after which time all reminder windows will disappear.
