{dfp-include} (SCO Unix) Terminal Emulators


Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ

What are some terminal emulators I can use from windows?

These are Windows terminal emulators.

If all you need is command line access, almost anything is fine - even Windows telnet. I'd suggest at least trying Putty (a very good free telnet/ssh client) before spending money.

However, some applications need precise emulation to work well. Worse, as the programmer who wrote it just might have been working with some emulator with quirks and may have written the app around those quirks, you may find that even an emulator that is doing exactly what it should be doing may be "wrong" for some silly app.

Fortunately, most of these have demos so you can try before you buy. You may also want to read the article here on Termcap and Terminfo.

Just a further comment on putty. We have about 1000+ pc's in the field that still connect to SCO (unixware 7.14) through ssh to do a good portion of thier job. Durring a recent hardware refresh we decided to replace our existing emulator with putty (the price was too good :) ). It took alot of trial and error to get right, but using information from this website and experienting we found a font that looked reasonable as well as the settings that eliminated the gibberish odd characters through various apps we use. In any case I use portable putty so changes are not written to the registry and users dont need registry permissions to install it. I have it on over 80% of my users now for about 6 months and I link to it here if anyone wants to compare settings or has similar needs still.
(link) (google docs can be a little confusing Click File -> Download Original to get the zip. Then just extract both folder and shortcut to your desk top. Hope that is helpful to others. From my estimates (the emulator we replaced was a 100 dollar a pop) we have saved close to 100,000 dollars by switching to putty. Just some food for thought.
