Product Overview


TinyTERM Plus addresses the host connectivity needs of enterprise-level organizations that require access to IBM mainframes, mid-range computer systems, and UNIX / Linux, VMS, Pick and Unidata servers. Standardizing on TinyTERM Plus offers easy and economical migration from other vendor's products, with enterprise-grade deployment management tools and integration options providing ease and greater flexibility to control and customize organizational rollouts.

Visual Basic for Applications

TinyTERM Plus provides VBA support and an integrated development environment (IDE) through WinWrap integration. Scripts from Attachmate Extra and similar environments can be run with no editing required. TinyTERM Plus automatically updates the scripts for its own environment on the fly.


TinyTERM Plus includes SSH, SSL and TLS for secure host connectivity. Based on strong 1024-bit encryption, these protocols allow users to securely access remote hosts over any network, and safely transfer files between systems.

Port Forwarding

To further safeguard sensitive enterprise data, TinyTERM Plus offers port forwarding, a technology that allows normally unsecure communications like email or web surfing to be encrypted site-to-site, thereby ensuring the privacy and integrity of user communications.

Increase User Productivity

Login and authentication sequences can be automated and executed with a single keystroke, saving time. Complex file transfer sequences can be created that allow users to move files from one host to another, or from multiple hosts to the desktop. Shortcut keys can be assigned to applications, allowing users to rapidly task-switch from one application to another.

International Code Page Support

With TinyTERM Plus, you have total code page flexibility. You can choose your keyboard code page, the transmit code page, and the receive code page configurations to ensure compatibility with nearly any system in the world. You can choose from the many included standard code pages, or you can customize your own. And to ensure proper translation, TinyTERM Plus uses a 16-bit TERM Character Set (TCS) that supports up to 768 characters, enabling TinyTERM Plus to work accurately with any modern language used in the computer industry.

Corporate Enterprise Deployment

Advanced deployment capabilities provide flexibility to control and manage the enterprise rollout process. Customized host access configurations can be easily and automatically pushed from corporate file servers to multiple desktops, and are compatible with Microsoft SMS and Altiris installation mechanisms. TinyTERM Plus can be installed directly on Citrix and Microsoft TSE thin client servers for deployment without any desktop installation required. Web server deployment allows automated installation and execution within the desktop browser environment.

Ease of Migration

Migrating from your existing vendor to TinyTERM Plus is greatly simplified with built-in keyboard and codepage mappings compatible with Attachmate, Hummingbird, and WRQ products. To further speed migration, TinyTERM Plus includes a number of script and configuration conversion utilities that greatly reduce the time and costs associated with migration.

Administer Host Access from a Central Location

All clients access your legacy data using the parameters you set up. TinyTERM Plus lets you set the keyboard maps, code pages, color mappings, background bitmaps, and more, which all the clients will access. And all TinyTERM session settings can be contained in a single file on the Web server to make server-based administration of Web-to-host access convenient and easy to manage.

Pre-defined user configurations and the ability to lock-down user options guarantee a standardized user experience, minimal IT support, and simplified end-user training.

Customize Look-and-Feel with Complete Attribute Mapping

With TinyTERM Plus, you have flexibility in mapping colors and attributes such as normal, reverse, bold, underline, blink, high and low bright, strike through, and double strike. You have complete control over how host data is displayed. For example, you can highlight important fields on the screen, making them easier to locate and read.

Print Management

Print management capabilities integrated into TinyTERM Plus allow users to route print jobs to any local or network printer and allow local desktop printers to act as additional network print resources. Print jobs can also be output as files and stored anywhere on the network. Enterprise users can select custom settings and configurations for each printer or print job.


TinyTERM Plus includes a powerful scripting language you can use for unlimited customizing possibilities. You can customize and automate host connectivity procedures, automate file transfers, create polling, log-in, log-out, and shutdown routines, and more. TinyTERM Plus uses JavaScript functionality and syntax, so users familiar with JavaScript won't have any problems working with TinyTERM Plus.

Support for industry standards such as HLLAPI, COM, OLE, VBA scripting and ActiveX give TinyTERM Plus users a choice of mechanisms to integrate host data with local desktop applications and spreadsheets.

File Transfer

File transfer support in TinyTERM Plus allows users to transfer files throughout the enterprise using a variety of protocols. Support for IBM mainframes and servers includes INDFILE host file transfer, and a graphical drag-and-drop FTP client allows secure file transfers utilizing SFTP, SCP, and SSH protocols.
