As far as I can find, only kermit 95 (for windows) supported terminal emulation and that was taken out in later versions.

Some general good info.

As I recall before windows 95 in DOS days most bbs users would use various network tools from pctools maybe??? I forget where I got those tools. Some package had all the good ones. zmodem, xmodem, kermit, and maybe 12 more. What a long time ago.

I guess if you really want this to work using the R.Pi, you may end up writing your own minimal terminal emulator. You may even be able to base it on the source code from one of the existing emulators.

Although the termcap database is deprecated, a quick look at
Code:
man temcap
and /etc/termcap do seem to provide enough info to suggest that only a minimal amount of escape sequences would need to be captured/processed
Code:
adm3a|lsi adm3a:\
        :am:bs:\
        :co#80:li#24:\
        :bl=^G:cl=1\032:cm=\E=%+ %+ :cr=^M:do=^J:ho=^^:kd=^J:kl=^H:\
        :kr=^L:ku=^K:le=^H:ma=^K^P:nd=^L:nl=^J:rs=^N:sf=^J:up=^K:
with the rest of the output passed through to stdout.

Code:
man termcap

If you just need the most simplest form where you can type and see information output back to you, it may be easier to write your own emulator. This way you can guarantee that character translations are exactly what you want.

I'm sorry to say "write my own" is beyond my ability.
