: NCSA Telnet for DOS used to be able to emulate a TEK terminal.

Unfortunately, NCSA Telnet for DOS will not run in Win95 (if you 
use any windows comm programs at all and built-in TCP/IP).  I 
have not discovered any freeware telnet programs for Win95 that 
have even half the features of NCSA Telnet (or CUTCP TN3270) for
DOS.  The best sulutions I've found are to use an XWindow server
program to display graphics, and to use QVT/Net terminal for 
passthrough printing of text, and, in transparent mode, GCG 
graphics.  This works well, but requires shelling out money 
for the software licenses.  BTW, passthrough printing will 
NOT work on many of the other available freeware and shareware
telnet programs.  With them, you must save to a file, then 
download and print it locally.
