Configuring Terminal Data Conversion

The code pages or translation table for code page conversion and the line delimiters for EOL conversion can be specified in the server configuration files. For interactive sessions, the code pages are the initial values (they can be changed with the chcp command).

The configuration variables have defaults which are used if the variables are not specified in any configuration file. The values specified in sshd2_config override the defaults and can themselves be overridden by settings in host-specific or user-specific subconfiguration files. For more infomation, see User-Specific Subconfiguration and Host-Specific Subconfiguration).

Subconfiguration files are read in when a terminal session is started - they can be changed without restarting the server or the client connection.

The related configuration variables are:

ShellAccountCodeset defines the CCS expected by the shell and shell applications

ShellTransferCodeset defines the coded character set (CCS) on the line

ShellAccountLineDelimiter defines the line delimiter expected by the shell and shell applications

ShellTransferLineDelimiter defines the line delimiter on the line

ShellConvert defines whether conversions are to be done for shell access and remote command execution

ShellTranslateTable defines the MVS translate table to be used from line to shell.
