Terminal Emulator

I was wondering if there is a good terminal emulator out thre to connect to HP3000 machines from linux? I have heard of freevt3k but all the links I find seem to be dead. Any help would be great.

Re: Terminal Emulator

I've had no issues other than keyboard annoyances using Linux gnome terminal windows to install and administer HP-UX boxes.

Just have to remember I'm not on the Linux box, since escape k goes to previous command instead of the arrow keys.

Its really mental gymnastics.

I use a windows terminal to administer both, its called putty

It works as telnet or ssh and I use it for HP-UX and Linux 7.3

Re: Terminal Emulator

I appreciate everyone's help. The freev3k was definetly the one I had in mind, but was having trouble finding a good link. Some of the standard terminals don't run MPE applications in them right that is why I needed a HP300 or vt700/92 emulator. Thanks.

Re: Terminal Emulator

I use several methods :)
I run Red Hat linux 7.3 and 8.0 and use xterm - Linux is nice becuase it uses a X environment and I can export my display to my linux box.

From windows I use several methods....

Exceed - licensed software which is expensive but allows you to have X windows session and have your own CDE or Gnome desktop.

Reflections - licensed software which is basically the same as a terminal window

Cygwin - freeware - great product available at:
this runs a linux prompt from within Windows - you can also run an X session just like Exceed but this is free. Very nice product.

Putty - freeware - available from http://www.tucows.com Putty will allow you to login using telnet or ssh and it basically looks like a terminal or dos window. I like this product also.
