SUMMARY: Connections to Solaris 2.x from term server

Date: Wed Nov 16 1994 - 08:36:22 CST

I have yet to find the answer I was looking for. The responses point to the
fact that I have to manually set the TERM variable. I was looking for an
automatic detection, like Solaris 1.x. The TERM variable is set to 'sun' on
every login. I did not want to give the users a menu of terminal types,
every time they logged in.

Thanks to the following who responded:
