Hi,

I just finalized my work on Telnet65 v1.0, a VT100 Telnet client. I guess it can best be described as remake of Kipperterm. Like Kipperterm it is based on IP65 combined with the VT100 code of Cater (http://www.opppf.de/Cater/). However it's strictly VT100 and comes as disk .PRG file.

Telnet65 is based on the latest IP65 code which contains several bugfixes and autodetects both the RR-Net and the ETH64.

Telnet65 is based on the latest Cater code which contains significant improvements. Additionally I added support for that line drawing seen i.e. in Midnight Commander.

I have no idea what VT100 Telnet clients for the C64 are available so I can't assess how interesting Telnet65 actually is, especially given that it does not use soft80 but the stock 40 col text screen.

The very same is true for me regarding the Apple II - which didn't have any Telnet client at all so far - and which is predestined as Telnet client given that 80 column support is very broad.

Nice job Oliver!
Thanks for the positive feedback :-)

Just curious, does the C64 version try to negotiate a 40 columns window size?

Surely! Just check out 'Midnight Commander'. It is fully adjusted to 40 columns and therefore works just fine. And it is by the way a nice show case for the mapping of the VT100 underline and bold attributes to colors.

Hi,

I just released v1.2:

- Beside some minor issues I fixed a bug in IP65 (the TCP/IP stack used by Telnet65) that kept Telnet65 from connecting successfully to several types of servers.

- Telnet65 is now also available for the Atari (beside the C64 and the Apple //) thanks to the Christian Groessler.
