Re: telnet with debian 1.3.1
Use anything but the Win95 telnet. It ***really*** sucks!
You can get by with it in a scrape using the hjkl keys as arrow keys when in
command mode within vi.
A great alternative that I use under Win95 is the latest version of
Hyperterminal (version 3.0) which has Winsock capabilities and great
terminal emulation. HT3.0 is free (for personal use) and is available at:
