E-mail Print

AbsoluteTelnet/SSH supports screen printing initiated by the user as well as passthru printing sent from the host.  Printing options are available on the Options->Properties->VTOptions dialog.

Screen Printing 

AbsoluteTelnet provides two different methods of printing. To print, click the printer icon on the tool bar or go to file->print. Then either select "Screen" or "Selection". If "Screen" is chosen, then the application will print what appears in the terminal window. To print a specific selection of text, highlight the desired text (incorporating scrolling, if desired), go to the print window, and choose "Selection". The application also includes the Windows standard printer selection box.

Passthru Printing

AbsoluteTelnet supports 'passthru printing' which is print data that is sent directly from the host.  By default, this data will be printed on the default printer, but this can be changed via the "passthru printing" options on the Options->Properties->VTOptions page.  You can redirect the passhthru printing data to a file, a serial port, or to a preassigned printer.  You can even bypass the printer driver and have the raw data sent directly to the printer.

Absolute Telnet has become my Telnet/SSH client of choice. Very powerful and flexible. Useful new features are added with each of the (frequent) updates. I have found the support to be excellent as well. Give it a try, I think you'll like it! -- sleepytom
