Connecting to a host configured for a double-byte language may not result in the display of the expected double-byte characters.


Follow these steps to properly configure the Reflection emulation session.

1. When creating the document, select Model ID 5555-C01. This is the only ID which supports double-byte characters.
2. Select the appropriate host code page.
3. Select 'Configure additional settings' and click OK.

4. Click 'Configure Terminal Settings' and then OK.

5. Enable 'Support double-byte character set' and click OK.

You should now be able to login and see the configured double-byte characters.
