I have had various results with different windows telnet clients also.
Some settings that seem to help if you can change them
Use: Force Character at a time mode.
Also make sure not to change the window size (ok if scaling, and not
I use CRT v4.0.1 with windows. Took me a bit of tweeking but works
great now. I also tested a couple of free/shareware clients that worked
Under linux and solaris I use the command line telnet which works, and a
nix serial/com program that works great is minicom.
I don't have the drivewire serial drivers (can't find them or the
server) but I do have drive wire.
I kinda got the source off of source forge, but I am not a programer,
just a hacker and havn't figured out all the ins and outs of compiling
with source forge.
I have better luck compiling on the coco! ha ha ha
I use a windows program written for comador's to go from serial on the
coco to tcpip on the net, where I log into the coco at home from work,
and use scred that way.
If you could instruct me on where/how to get the drivewire stuff, I
could help you test it.
Good luck! and have fun!
