PuTTY for sure. Can handle Unicode to do its line and figure drawing which is a plus. Yes, it handles ANSI too.

In addition to both my telnet and ssh ports being open, I've built a web interface for some of the message bases and the file areas.

I must admit I just assumed that any good telnet client would come with the SSH option, hence I suppose I'm not actually asking specifically for a telnet client per se.

Minicom..cool..never heard of it thanks. And it never occured to me that Putty would have a Linux version....

Thanks!

Jon, to run Putty under Linux, you would need to download the source code and build it. If you are running a Debian-compatible distro, I would be happy to compile and build a .deb package of it for you if I can.

FYI, I, run, run a BBS, two in fact: telnet://net261.ath.cx and telnet://net261.ath.cx:2323 -- the second one, Jackalope Junction, runs Synchronet for Linux under Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 5.

Unfortunately, it does not have file transfer abilities (AFAIK). I seem to recall using Minicom as a telnet client a while back. However, I also seem to have forgotten how I did it

Okay, after I made this post, I did a Google search and found the following message:

---8<---

I've got it!! I did a few things to get the almost perfect setup:

1) Install modemu and minicom packages
2) Run the following command:

modemu -c "minicom -o -l -c on -p %s"

This starts up the modem emulator (for using telnet), runs minicom and
tells it to use the fake modem, turns on color, disables the AT init
string, and tells minicom not to convert high ascii to low ascii.

3) Once the program is running, change your terminal window's character
encoding to Western (IBM850) so that high ascii renders almost right. It's
not 100% perfect (some gaps between lines). Ideally CP437 should be used
but I can't figure out how to get that working, even after installing new
fonts etc...

4) Use the phone book in minicom to add all your favourite bbs's. In the
phone number field put the address between double quotes such as
"bbs.doghousebbs.com". Also make sure to set terminal
emulation to ANSI.


Now tell it to dial the bbs and enjoy. This is so exciting for me, I have
never had a good terminal in linux that gives me nearly 100% proper ANSI
graphics and rendering. So far everything renders right, just the
character encoding isn't perfect. Even the maximus full screen editor
works properly.

Minicom supports ZModem, though I'm not sure why it doesn't seem to be
working for me..

I created a sript called 'bbs' that runs that long command for me. I just
have to remember to change my terminal encoding before
"dialing". I might try one more thing. Use the putty terminal
to ssh into my box, then run the bbs script. In one of putty's config
screens you can enable cp437 for perfect ANSI.
