Error description

  • Customer was not able to use session with a screen size of
    62x160 until he added TerminalTypeString=IBM-DYNAMIC under the
    [Telnet3270]  stanza in the .ws-file.- They don't have to do so
    if they select  24x80, 32x80, 43x80 or 27x132. He would like to
    know:
    If this parameter is required to allow screen sizes above
    27x132, why doesn't PCOM insert this parameter automatically?
    

Local fix

  • Add TerminalTypeString=IBM-DYNAMIC under the [Telnet3270]
    stanza in the .ws-file.
