The screen shots below should give you a good idea
of how our terminal emulation software and telnet/ssh client works.
(For more details please check the feature list also, or
download ZOC Terminal for
a full test drive.)
Note: The screenshots below are for Windows.
If you are instead interested in ZOC Terminal for
Mac OS X,
you will find the screenshots
The picture to the right shows ZOC's terminal screen configured
communication with Linux emulation. Note the toolbar and the buttons
bar which are both fully configurable. The toolbar in the picture just
shows some of the buttons available (there are over sixty). The button bar
lets you map arbitrary functions (such as calling a certain host, starting
a certain REXX file, etc.) onto buttons and you can choose your own labels.
The buttons in the status bar show the current input/output device, file
transfer protocol, terminal emulation, online status, log file,
online time and more. Clicking on them brings up the options dialogs that
define these services.

ZOC supports a wide variety of emulations which allow to connect to very different
system environments. The screenshots above show concurrent connections to two
Unix systems using the Xterm connection, one MacOS system via VT220 and an IBM mainframe.
The image to the right shows a full size screenshot to another IBM zSeries mainframe
using the TN3270 emulation.
The most simple way to make occasional connections to hosts which you
do not need to connect to on a regular basis is the Quick Connect feature.
It lets you choose from a basic set of options and profiles and immediately
makes a connection without having to deal with too many specifics.
Keyboard remapping profiles allow you to completely redefine the keyboard.
Each key or key combination can be mapped to send text, connect to a host,
start a script, perform a menu function, etc.
For connections which you need to make on a regular basis
ZOC offers a fully featured host directory which can be divided into
sections - each of which may be named individually. In addition to that,
each section can contain folders.
The hosts can be connected to from the host directory dialog, important
connections can be mapped into ZOC's file menu or user button bar or
you can create a shortcut on your desktop to start ZOC and initially
make the connection.
This screen shows important information about the entries, whose details
may be altered by editing the entries.
An entry in the host directory is any host that can be reached via
rlogin, modem or ISDN. Each session can have it's own set of options
and visual appearance.
It is also possible to automate the login to the host or to start a
script to run automated actions after the connection has been established.
You can save several sets of session-related options (session profiles) and
map these to host directory entries. This means that you can have different
host directory entries with completely different behaviours and
appearances - including different screen size, colors, button bar and more.
If you select one or more entries to call, ZOC can open a dial window
and try to connect to the first free one or to try to reconnect when
a connection is temporarily not available (e.g. modem busy).
You can connect to any service, even via mixed devices like
SSH (Secure Shell),
modem and ISDN. ZOC will retry entries
that are busy or otherwise unavailable.
File transfers are possible via
connections, which allow
you to send and receive files directly to and from shell sessions on a
server, for example using the Zmodem rz/sz command.
If a file transfer is initiated, ZOC will show you the file size, progress,
number of bytes and time remaining. With multiple files, ZOC will also
show a progress bar, time and bytes remaining for the full transfer as
well as for the individual files.
In addition to the session profiles, ZOC offers a wealth of program-related
configuration options, e.g. printer selection, activation of warning messages,
sound files, auto connection parameters and more.
