    So, you are looking for a terminal emulator? Is this for dial-up connections? And, what terminal protocols do you need to support?

    Yes, looking for a terminal emulator to work over a LAN as well as over a DSL connection using SSH.

    Ok. But what terminal types do you need to emulate?

    Sorry....scoansi...it's for a legacy COBOL application.

    That's actually a pretty generic ANSI terminal protocol. Most any xterm or Linux x-windows terminal/console tool should deal with that ok. Have you tried? For example, the RHEL/CentOS KDE Konsole application can emulate the following terminal types (note that ANSI is basically a VT-100 or VT-102 terminal type): xterm, vt100, linux console, vt420pc, Solaris. The Linux Console is essentially an ANSI terminal with extra goodies for color display.

    I've poked around a bit but there seemed to be more setup involved than just TERM=X. I wanted to ping the forum before I dug deeper into settings, etc. When I set things up with xterm there seemed to be some CR and PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN issues.

    I'll poke around a bit more and get back to the forum, with success or failure info.

    Thanks!
