MacWise is an easy to use Mac app that comes with a minimalist user interface and is capable to emulate various terminals, such as Prism, TV925, VT100, VT220, Viewpoint, Wyse 50, Wyse 60 and Wyse 370.

Effortless to install terminal emulator that can work with different protocols

To start using the MacWise application, you must begin by installing the utility: simply drag and drop the app icon on top of the Application’s folder. At first launch, MacWise also opens the Telnet Quick Start document that provides essential information for getting around the app.

Right off the bat, you must select the terminal you want to use via the Emulate main menu and establish a connection. MacWise offers support for multiple connection types: serial/modem, telnet, secure shell, or Kermit. In addition, you can login to the Mac Unix Shell.

Connect to host computers via terminal emulators

To establish a connection to a host computer, you must provide the host TCP/IP address, the terminal type, and the available port number. Optionally, you can enable the verbose login, the Unix raw mode, or the tc shell mode.

If the latter option is enabled, you can further personalize the connection: open the “Advanced Options” panel to view a list of supported parameters, and the immediate result of activating them.

MacWise also provides support for using function keys, either by pressing the keyboard, or by pressing the buttons placed on the bottom of the app’s main window. Note that the function keys are programable, so you can easily add special functions.

Versatile terminal emulator that provides support for different protocols and connection modes

MacWise offers you the possibility to connect to a host computer and perform different actions via the terminal: you can send specific commands, transfer files, run scripts, and so on. The app can handle up to 10 different sessions at the same time, so you can manage multiple hosts simultaneously.
