- JET 3270 Documentation / Settings & Preferences


The information JET 3270 uses to acess a host are called session settings. They include the hostname and port number of the TN3270 server JET 3270 connects to and the colours used to display text. Session settings can be stored and retrieved as sessions on the local file system, called local sessions, or sessions on a web server, called web sessions.

The Session Settings dialog box, accessed by selecting Settings from the Session menu, lets you view and change the settings for the current session. Open on the Session menu lets you select a new local or web session. Save and Save As are used to save the current session settings as a local session on the local file system. Each JET 3270 window can have a different session open.

JET 3270's preferences affect all JET 3270 windows and include the source of help pages and which of the toolbar, screen keyboard and status bar are displayed. Preferences can be viewed and changed by selecting Preferences from the Session menu. JET 3270 saves the preferences to the local file system. The first time JET 3270 runs on a client the preferences are set from the web page used to load JET 3270 (via applet parameters). Subsequently preferences are loaded from the saved copy when JET 3270 starts (unless the disable_preferences applet parameter is set to yes).

*Remark : The hostname of the Library of Congress,, is used throughout this documentation as an example only. To test host connectivity in your environment substitute where you see throughout this documentation.
