vt100/vt400 Terminal Emulation WITH ssh


What can I use to connect to an OpenVMS Alpha system over a tcp/ip network from my Linux box?

In most cases, this is going to be the "telnet" client. Your OVMS box would have to have SSH running (none of ours do) in order to use something else. If it DOES by some chance have it running, then "ssh -l username hostname" should get you started in a terminal window.

We've tried telnet using ssh and the problems we are having are as follows:

- Keyboard mappings are off
- Unable to edit files using eve
- Line advancement issues (such as an occasional forced 80 char screen - leads to strange strange line overwriting)
- Panels don't display correctly

Further, QVT and PuTTY on Winblows seem to work fine when connecting to this system.

Our preferene would be to use Linux to connect to this system of course. Also, we would like to have the "nice editor" behavior in both xwindows terminals and linux boxes without x, with our preference to boxes with x.

I hope this message helps make my questions/issues/problems more clear. Thanks in advance for all your help.

You're in the same boat I am in... I can't find a good VMS terminal emulator for Linux that will run in X-windows. There is a way to rebind the keys when you start a session, but I was never very happy with that either. What I have found that works fairly well is to CTRL+ALT+F1 to a virtual console and telnet from there. That seems to work.
