Open source terminal emulation

Hello all.
We currently use Reflection for Unix, VMS and AS400 terminal emulation but are looking for a free or open source equivalent of the Reflection software.

Is anyone aware of such an offering?

Thanks in advance.

As James noted, Putty is good.

QC Term is also free and does HP terminal emulation very well.

http://www.cygwin.com/

Cygwin project provides most of the Unix/Linux commands, utilities including X server, compiled for Windows. You can start local window-less X server and have remote system DISPLAY exported to local X server. Works great with local xterm.
