Submitted by: Julian H. Unger, AMF Geo Space Corporation, Houston, TX
Operating System: RT-11  Source Language: FORTRAN IV  Memory Required:
6414.W  Software Required: RT-11 version 4.0 sysgened with:
multi-terminal support asynchronous terminal status support, and 134
character input and output ring buffer support.  Hardware Required: At
least one extra asynchronous serial interface port appropriate cables
and modem (if needed) for interface to the host, Lear/Siegler or other
dumb terminal.  Keywords: Utilities - RT-11
Abstract: The virtual terminal program (LSTERM) is a general
purpose utility to allow any computer running RT-11 to
connect to a host computer as if it were a remote
terminal. No intelligence is assumed by the host
The purpose of LSTERM is to provide two basic
. To allow a user to interact with a host computer
  through the RT-11 system
. To allow a user to transfer files between the host
  computer and the RT-11 system
When transfering a file to a time-sharing host computer
that is busy with several tasks and several users, it
may not be able to keep up with the steady stream of
input from the RT-11 system via xon/xoff protocol.
Note that the VAX/VMS provides this service with the
Media (Service Charge Code): Write-Up and Listing (DA), One RX01
Diskette (KA)  Format: RT-11, 600' Magnetic Tape (MA)  Format: RT-11
