are planning to use Windows 2000 or Windows NT clients as terminals you must
ensure that the IMSNWDRV.SYS driver is at least version 3.05. To check this type

do not have a up-to-date driver then you may obtain this on the IMSterm
6.03 upgrade disk.
If you are running under Windows NT or Windows 2000 then ensure
you are using Imsterm 6.03 and you have Client
service for Netware enabled within the Network services panel or you will see
the error message "Netware driver IPX.COM has not been installed".
Make sure that you have the IPX protocol enabled and bound only
to one network card (If you have a modem you may see it bound to this as well
as the Network card which can cause problems).
When you run the HOSTLIST.EXE utility and nothing appears try
running HOSTLIST /L as this will provide more diagnostic information.
Check the default frame type the client is using (Network
controller panel -> IPX -> Default frame type) and make sure that this is
the same frame type configured on the REAL/32 machine.
If you can start the terminal emulator but finding that the
terminal stops operating after a period of time then check the shortcut that
started IMSTERM, make sure that screen saver is off and that idle sensitivity is
set to LOW.

IMSTerm Remote Over Dialup
If you run IMSTERM Remote over an ISDN
connection, Watchdog packets may need to be switched off to stop the link being
Watchdog packets are sent over IPX
ethernet links (and others) to ensure that server and client are both aware if
the connection is lost for any reason. However, over a dial-on-demand ISDN link,
the connection is only made when data needs to be sent.
If the terminal is idle, then no data needs to be sent and therefore the
line should drop to avoid high telephone charges.
If watchdog packets are in use, these packets will cause the line to be
raised, increasing the telephone line charge.
To suppress Watchdog packets with
IMSTERM Remote over IPX, do the following:
At the server, there will be a line in
file which reads
"DEVICE = C:\REAL32\DRIVERS\IMSNWDRV.SYS IMSHOST"
"/D" to that line to suppress Watchdog activity at the host
At the terminal end, add the following
line to the nwterm.ini
Watchdog packets will now be
suppressed from the next complete reboot. This will have the side effect that if
the connection is lost, either because the host is rebooted or the client is
switched off, then gaining reconnection may take a little more time.
Suppressing Watchdog packets may not
be sufficient to stop all superfluous traffic, however. The status line updates can be suppressed by the appropriate
terminal setting in SETUP, or by sending an Esc 0 command. The
clock will also be updated every minute on terminals, so it is best to switch
this off using Esc 4.
A complete list of the available escape code sequences is available in
the REAL/32 Installation Guide in
table F3 starting on page F-6.
If you are encountering very slow screen updates (
Takes 30 seconds to display a single screen ) then IMS has developed a Beta
driver which may help solve the problem ( which is normally caused by routers
being set up incorrectly ). Please contact email@example.com
for more information.
Configuring More than 16 Terminals
IMSTerm Remote can support upto 48 terminals but you will have
to make a change to your C:\NWCLIENT\NET.CFG
file to allow it to work with >16 terminals. Ensure that you have the
following section within your net.cfg

3 Com Network Cards &
are encountering a number of dealers who are reporting that their Windows
systems will lock when using IMSTERM. All of the systems which have had these
problems have been using AGP video cards and 3 Com network adaptors. Swapping
out the Network cards for another network card MFR appears to resolve the
