    1. Check that your host looks correct in the Admin Console. If it does not check the following:
      • That you are using the correct Emulation Protocol and Telnet Level
      • That you are using the correct Terminal Type
      • If you have access to another terminal emulator, compare it’s settings to those in the Admin Console
    2. If your host looks correct in the Admin Console but the colours are incorrect, then check the following:
      • That you have selected a suitable Terminal Colour Scheme in your FVTerm preferences
      • That you have chosen a suitable style sheet in the FVTerm web.confg file. See Guide to Configuring FVTerm Visual Appearance for more details.
    3. If your host looks correct in the Admin Console but the font or layout is incorrect, then check the following:
      • That you have selected a suitable font in your FVTerm preferences
      • That the selected font is a mono-spaced font. Proportional fonts will cause layout issues.

    For more details see Guide to Configuring FVTerm Visual Apperance.
