Connection sharing with Sitatex


There are basically two terminal emulator programs which can share a connection with various Sitatex versions. They are:
  • Multitex - A simple Westinghouse 1642 terminal type emulator used almost exclusively for access to Gabriel (formerly known as Gabytex)
  • Liaison - A much more advanced (modern) terminal emulator which can be used to emulate more terminal types with various access protocols.
