for what I know, the only vt100/tektronic emulator you can find in the net is 
TEKTEL1B.ZIP (any CICA mirror in /win3/winsock/tektel1b.zip)
Mike Salmon (the autor) made a great job doing it, but sadly the program is not so good
under vt100 emulation which looks pretty ugly ... More, under vt100 you don't see the
cursor blinking .. you don't see the cursor at all ..
I think we should ask Mike to spend a little bit more time on it fixing these simple (I 
hope) bugs :)
anyway the tek 4010 works VERY well with GCG ... 
Try it .....
