Any telnet should do, although many don't support color ansi.

I'm not all that familiar with OS/2, but if it will run winsock
compliant aplications, the telnet client from Dart Communications is
the best I've seen.  I think it is either shareware or freeware and
available on many ftp sites. Alternatively you can email me for access
to it on my ftp site. The file is called vt220.exe.  The program, has
very nice easy on the eyes text and supports color ansi, keymapping
and a range of other useful features.  Also, the program seems much
more stable than other telnet clients I have run under windows.

BTW, I have a very fast link!!
