Question Xterm Terminal Emulation


Hey all...

I have a windows maching and a linux laptop @ work right now...

For most of my work related to remote machine logins etc...i have already ported to the linux machine and have a few xterm windows opening with my various logins and customised apps.

I have, however, one important machine that i can't quite get to work. On windows we use Power Term and VT420-7 Terminal emulation. I'd like, if possible, to get an Xterm window to handle that emulation. Without this, i can currently login to the machine via telnet as necessary, but I'm unable to use most of the function keys that i require.

Any help/ideas/suggestion?

Thanx

Could try minicom --help in xterm window....although I dont think its all that great of a proggy.
Im guessing ssh/scp wont work?

One good small utility I like is NXclient/servers

Thanx for the quick response...minicom doesn't seem to be quite what i'm looking for...but cool to know that it's there...

I just sat over lunch and semi-systematically tried several key combinations to see which i could get to work.

Turns out if i Ctrl+Shift the keys they work.

Great!

Now...is it possible to - for ease of transistion etc - to map those keys to the Ctrl+Shift equivalent just for the shell opened in the xterm window?

Does the [wiki]terminal emulator[/wiki] have to be xterm? Konsole offers several keymappings and you can add your own. On the other hand, Konsole requires KDE (it's part of it) and is quite heavy on the resources. There may be other alternatives too: http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=terminal+emulator. Frankly, xterm is antiquated and messy and I wouldn't use it for anything serious.
