Tera Term Terminal Emulator for Windows

Recommended Posts

I found a reference to Tera Term on a Mecrisp Forth website. It mentioned that it has a BASIC-like programming language built in so I got it here.

It is extremely full featured and it seems to run very well with Magic File Manipulator so I thought I would report my findings.

 

At first it looked like it did not support XMODEM transfers.  The help mentioned that it could however so I looked in the TERATERM.INI file and changed these two controls

XmodemBin  XmodemRcvCommand from 'off'  to 'on'.

 

After that the XMODEM menus were not grayed out and it works great.

; XMODEM option (checksum/crc/1k)
XmodemOpt=checksum
; Binary flag for XMODEM Receive and ZMODEM Send (on/off)
XmodemBin=on

; XMODEM receive command
XmodemRcvCommand=on

NOTE on MFM:

I had been using the MFM program with hyper-terminal and had my RS232 configured on the TI-99 in the default 7 bits, ODD parity, 1 stop bit configuration. 

Somehow it worked even when I transferred binary (program) files. (??)  

 

But, I saw a lot of strange things on my terminal when I was controlling MFM at the TI-99 console.

 

>>I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT MFM ECHOS MENUS OVER RS232. DUH!<<

 

So for those who might be using MFM for the first time, set your serial port to  8 BITS, NO PARITY, 1 STOP-BIT and you can control MFM from the comfort of your PC.

I have several MFM videos and one or two TerraTerm videos on my YouTube channel as well, in case anyone was interested. :D
