I have configured and pushed the "font type" emulation parameter but my new font is not showing up when I launch telnet. What is needed to change the font type telnet uses on my device?
Telnet can use any font that is loaded onto the device. The key here, is that the configured font MUST be installed on the device for telnet to be able to use it. You can also choose the font type from the device by clicking options>configure>emulation>font.
On telnet for windows 7 and above the settings are located here Term>>Configure>>Emulation Parameters>>Emulation>>Display>>Font name
Note: A WARMBOOT IS REQUIRED FOR THE NEW FONT TO WORK CORRECTLY.
Please note if you are using Windows 7 and higher versions you need to make two more additional changes
Navigate to this place Term>Emulation parameters>Display>
Stretch screen height by default this is enabled, change it to disabled.
Stretch screen width by default this is enabled, change it to disabled.
once you save the changes the font size will change.
