Changes the characteristics of an Xstation 160.

The x_chg_trm_160 command changes, for the current host, the characteristics of the Xstation specified by the Name parameter, and stores the changed configuration in the /etc/x_st_mgr/xs160/cfg/<IPaddress> file, and the /etc/x_st_mgr/x_st_mgrd.tmty file.
Parameters that can be changed are:
|160||Specifies that this command is used only for an Xstation 160.|
|Name||Specifies the name of the Xstation. The Name parameter can be up to eight characters long and include the uppercase or lowercase letters a through z, the numbers 0 through 9, the - (dash) and the . (period). Name can be a user name, such as taylor , or a group name with a number appended, such as graphs-2 , and should identify an Xstation by its location in the work place or by the primary user's name. Name is stored in the /etc/hosts file.|
|TypeName||Specifies the name you defined for this network-Xstation model-subnet combination with the Define an Xstation Network Type option in SMIT or with the x_def_net command. Press the F4 key in SMIT to select the network type. An example is x_st_mgr.ether160 for Ethernet and an Xstation 160.|
|Address||Specifies the Local Area Network (LAN) hardware address of the Xstation. This address appears on the LAN Statistics screen when you power-on the Xstation. Each Xstation has a unique 6-byte hexadecimal hardware address, in XXXXXXXXXXXX format, that cannot be changed by the user.|
|Server||Specifies whether the host system is a primary boot server. A primary boot server responds immediately to a boot-protocol broadcast request from an Xstation; for other (secondary) boot servers, a delay time is imposed (see Time listed next). Two options are valid: y if the server is a primary server, and n if the server is not a primary server. The default option is y.|
|Time||Specifies the number of seconds a secondary boot server must wait before answering a boot-protocol broadcast request. (The valid number for a primary server is 0, because there is no delay time.) In SMIT, press the F4 key to see the recommended range of values. Generally, a value less than the minimum value does not distinguish between a primary and secondary server and a secondary server may be selected even when the primary server is available. A value greater than the maximum value may lead to a time out.|
|Device|| Specifies the input device. Device must be mouse or tablet. In SMIT, press the F4 button to select the input device. The default option is mouse.
You can attach a 6093 tablet device (Model 11 or Model 12) to the Xstation serial port. A tablet uses absolute positioning, as opposed to the relative positioning of a mouse, and cannot change the initial cursor location. The threshold and acceleration parameters of the xset command apply only to the mouse.
X Windows protocol supports five button signals from a mouse or tablet. Buttons 1, 2, and 3 correspond to the left, middle, and right buttons respectively. Button 4 is used as an event generating button. If required by specific application programs, button 5 sends the required messages. Buttons 6 through 16, if present, are disabled.
|PortName||Specifies the serial port on an Xstation 160 to which the tablet is attached. In SMIT, press the F4 key to select an option. The valid options are: T1, T2, S1, or S2. The default option is T1.|
|FontAccess||Specifies the way to access the font files. In SMIT, press the F4 key to select an option. Valid options are:|
|Xserver||Specifies the way to access the Xserver file list. In SMIT, press the F4 key to select an option. Valid options are:|
|PanShape|| Specifies how the hardware pan feature is to be used. Valid options are none, square, horizontal, and vertical. The default value is none.
With the hardware pan feature enabled, the physical screen shows a portion of a larger base window whose size is dependent on the amount of video memory (VRAM) installed on the Xstation. When the cursor is moved past the edge of the display, the screen will automatically scroll in that direction provided it has not already reached the edge of the base window.
|Mode|| Specifies the mode used by X Display Manager Control Protocol (XDMCP). XDMCP uses the xdm program to facilitate the connection of an Xstation to a remote host. XDMCP allows the user to turn an Xstation off and on again and maintain an established connection to the remote host. Valid options are:
|Host||Specifies the name of the xdmcp host used for direct or indirect communication with the Xstation. Valid options are none or the name of an xdmcp host. If XDMCP is not used or if broadcast mode is used, the value of Host is none. The name of an xdmcp host must be specified if Mode is direct or indirect. The default option is none.|
|Language||Sets the language used for system messages, the LANG environment variable. Press the F4 key in SMIT to select an option.|
|Keyboard||Sets the map for the keyboard layout. Press the F4 key in SMIT to select an option.|
|File||Sets the name of the keyboard file. The default is 'keyboard .' Some countries have a second keyboard file usually named 'keyboard.alt .'|
|Font||Sets the font used in the login window. Press the F4 key in SMIT to select an option.|
|Location||Sets the position of the login window on the display. Press the F4 key in SMIT to select an option. Valid options are Upper left, Upper right, Lower left, and Lower right.|
|LPFkeyport||Specifies the serial port on an Xstation to which the LPF keys are attached. Press the F4 key to select an option. The valid options are: none, T1, T2, S1, or S2.|
|KeyRepeatRate||Sets the rate, in characters per second, of automatically transmitted duplicate characters. A prolonged stay on any character key will activate the typematic operation and continue to transmit duplicate characters until the key is released. The arrow keys will move at twice the speed of character keys, up to 30 characters per second. The default rate is 28.|
Access Control: Only the root user should have execute (x) access to this command.
To change the characteristics of Xstation taylor for the current host, so the new hardware address is 10005ac9999 but the other characteristics remain unchanged from those defined with the x_add_trm_160 command, enter:
x_chg_trm_160 160 taylor x_st_mgr.ether 10005ac9999 y \ 00 mouse T1 'Base FLASH' 'Base FLASH' \ 'none' off none 'English (United States) IBM-850' \ 'English (United States)' 'keyboard' Rom14 'Upper left' \ 'none' '20'
All parameters must be entered.
