Terminal Emulation - Guide

You can choose between two Terminal Emulator providers: Micro Focus Reflection and HLLAPI.

Micro Focus Reflection

Download Micro Focus Reflection (rdesktop) and run setup.exe. During the installation, remember to check the API options that are needed for WinAutomation actions to work.

Note: Supporting versions of Reflection are 2011, 2014 and 2016

HLLAPI (theoretically supporting any provider)

Install one or more terminal emulation software (MicroFocus RUMBA, IBM Personal Communications, Cybele zScope, MicroFocus Reflection, RocketSoftware BlueZone).

Open the installed software. Default executable paths:

RUMBA:C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\RumbaPage.exe

IBM PC:C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Personal Communications\pcsws.exe

zScope:C:\Program Files (x86)\zScope\Classic v6.5\zClassic.exe

Reflection: C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Reflection\Attachmate.Emulation.Frame.exe.

BlueZone: C:\Program Files\BlueZone\7.1\bzsm.exe

Terminal Emulation Actions can be used ONLY after the Terminal Emulation software has been launched and the connection has been set.

Important Note: Remember to use Close Terminal Session to terminate the connection to the terminal emulation software. For some providers, you won't be able to connect to an already open session if you fail to close the connection and you will need to restart (the software or the connection to the host).
