I have found ckermit and MS-kermit 3.16, and according to other users, these will do the trick. I don't think that this verision of MS-kermit emulates the "linux console", Kermit95 does (but if the computer was able to run win95, I would of course run linux in the first place instead). Anyhow, the vt320 emulation is good enough for me with latin-1 support! I haven't tried the setup myself yet though, but I will soon. One can hope that "linux console" emulation will be supported by MS-kermit in the future.
Probably, but I had no idea anything could do 8-bit terminal input in the
Probably would need to base the terminal emulator off an older one. It
would be trying to run as close to `console' as possible. Minimum
requirements for me are supporting UTF-8 IO and propogating host display
settings to the remote. Full Unicode support (And I guess I could see
about adding GGI support as well) would be saved for later. What terminals
would you suggest to study for a good overview of the control sequences?
This will be officially going onto my ITW list, and I might even find time
to get started in the next couple months.
