Exclamation Redhat 9 Telnet SCO Ansi


Hello all,
I just recently joined this forum. I am looking for a telnet client for Redhat 9 that I can use to log into a server running SCO Openserver 5.0.X. I can log in just fine with the telnet client built into Redhat but I don't get a true SCO Ansi. My function keys don't work properly nor do some of the other keys.(backspace , Esc, etc)

Does anyone know what I'd need to do in order to get these keys to function properly?

Does anyone know of any software package out there to replace the telnet I'm using now?

Any help is greatly apprecaited.

Sincerely,

Use xterm window. on the window hold ctrl key and then left click on window. Select option of back arrow key and option of Old Function Keys.

This will produce an emulation that works on SCO with the function keys and backspace will work also.

hope this helps.

I have the same problem.. is there way to make konsole use an actual ansi term... and not xterm? For example, re-defining the keys won't help if you are connecting to a headless sco server - running scoadmin doesn't work because xterm tries to start an x-server.. which does not exist. It needs to draw it with lines...

To get it to stop doing this run the command 'unset DISPLAY'. Konsole appears to set this variable even when you telnet into another box. If the variable is not set scoadmin will run the text version of the interface.

I have also found that the keyboard setup of vt420pc works well on SCO.

Yaaayyy

Thank You daftwight. I never thought of looking at my environment on the connected box.
and vt420pc seems to work just like before.

(In case your were wondering i used ANSI term with windows telnet before)
