push erased text to scrollback


Iam using Konsole & xterm to connect to aix server for telnet application,
The application erases the screen , which i cannot scroll abck and see.

Putty unix version has this feature , i cannot use putty cause it doesn;t have features of konsole.

How to push erased text to scrollback or history in Konsole & xterm??

I use VT100 emulations , can i disable this function in VT 100???

Help is appreciated

Telnet? thats not very secure so I hope thats not over the internet, so you might want to use SSH instead

regarding your actual question
I don't think xterm can actually scroll
and for konsole does it regularly use scrollback but not for when you are connected to the server?

Yeah, I don't belive xterm can scroll back but you can always try SHIFT+PAGEUP or SHIFT+PAGEDOWN or CTRL+PAGEUP or CTRL+PAGEDOWN.
