Become very familiar with termcap/terminfo
 
As linux releases have been updated, in my case Red Hat Enterprise, I found that /etc/termcap started to change, and then noticed this file did not even exist on Debian distributions.

You may have to get yourself a copy of /etc/termcap; fiddle with it to your satisfaction; preserve a copy of it; and point your applications to it.

I do see your terminal and the 320 mentioned in the termcap we have. I cannot post attachments to this reply; otherwise I'd give you the termcap we have.

You may well have to purchase a more sophisticated Linux terminal emulator than the built-in telnet client. I use Ericom's PowerTerm Interconnect for Linux. Eitherway, you'll have to set TERMCAP to a termcap file, and look into terminfo, as well.
