Secure SSH and telnet VT/ANSI/Wyse/ADDS terminal emulation with macros, printing and software scanner support. TinyTERM Pro for iPad provides additional automation and printing enhancements to TinyTERM ITX 2 for iPad.

Starting with all TinyTERM ITX 2 features, TinyTERM Pro adds support for printing, ADDS and WYCOL emulations, onscreen keyboard remapping, macro recording and automation capabilities including auto-login, auto-connect, auto-reconnect and one-touch startup.

TinyTERM Pro is designed for non-technical users or uses where pre-configured, fully automated application access is required.

Based on our best-selling desktop TinyTERM product. We’ve been in business over 27 years and are excited to make this available to you.

Enhanced Capabilities

TinyTERM Pro enhances Century's TinyTERM ITX 2 terminal emulator capabilities by adding support for printing, ADDS Viewpoint emulation, on-screen keyboard remapping, macro recording, and automation capabilities including auto-login, auto-connect, auto-reconnect, prevent disconnect and one-touch startup.

The new ADDS Viewpoint VP/60 and WYCOL/Esprit III terminal emulations allows access to a large set of legacy systems previously without a mobile solution, including Pick, Unidata and Universe business and retail management systems.

Hardware and Software Barcode Scanning

TinyTERM Pro includes support for several hardware scanners:

In addition, the iPad's rear camera can be used as a scanner. Two-finger double-tap the screen or tap the "scan" button on the keyboard to start scanning. Supported code formats include EAN/UPC, Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, and QR.

Print using AirPrint and Email

Emulator screen contents as well as host transparent print data streams can now be sent to AirPrint printers, as well as redirected to an email attachment, for saving or sending to others. Print jobs can be combined with our internal spooler, as well as configured for multiple virtual print devices.

Host transparent printing allows wireless printing to a local nearby printer without host reconfiguration as the iPad's location is changed. Options allow grouping of print or screen data into single or separate print jobs or emails.

Reliable automation allows one-touch connections

TinyTERM Pro allows fully automated connections to remote applications using its sophisticated macro record/playback, auto-connect and auto-login capabilities. Macro recording and playback allow the interaction between the user and the remote application to be recorded and later played back to automate the process. Username, password and other information can be stored separately or prompted for, so that configurations can be pre-built without including sensitive information, and deployed to large user groups. An auto-connect option allows connecting immediately after the user starts TinyTERM Pro, and auto-login will execute any pre-defined macro. The net result is that you can build one-touch solutions to accessing your remote application resources.

Configurations can be set to automatically reconnect, or prevented from accidental disconnection, for ease of use in mission critical applications.

Macros can prompt for private information

Macros can prompt for usernames or passwords and associated with various configurations so that a pre-built single set of configurations can be prepared and sent to multiple users, and then automatically save personalized login information. Macros can also be assigned to keystrokes to help navigate complex applications.

Onscreen Keyboard Remapping

An on-screen user interface allows all of TinyTERM Pro's custom keyboards to remap keys to an automated action, a macro, or a sequence of characters, allowing maximum flexibility for automating or customizing a process during host access.
