Non Open Source Product Might Be Needed

What terminal emulation does putty support? I looked on a couple of web sites -- including -- and could not find reference for setting emulation type.

On putty's org page, it says it is for Windows, not Linux, so I am not quite sure who maintains the Linux version putty or if putty's .org page is incorrrect,

My primary desktop is Kubuntu. I needed an emulator that would allow multiple Unix/Linux host emulation, including specialized mapping of keys. The only product, open source or not, that I could find was PowerTerm Interconnect for Linux from Ericom software, It appears PowerTerm Interconnect for Linux supports VT400 emulation.

I like open source, and try to use only open source products. Sometimes, you have to go with paid-for products.
