openvms / xterm?

What is the best xterm-like tool to connect to openvms from a windows xp platform? We have e-term32 but it is not very good.

Thanks,
John

I normally use PUTTY, its free and supports telnet and ssh and can easily run from a USB stick.

Re: openvms / xterm?

Are you looking for a terminal emulator or an X Windows client?

This thread http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1116977 has many terminal emulator suggestions.

For an X client, I use the eXcursion software shipped on the Pathworks 32 media or a Linux pc.

Using DECterm from inside X-Win32; seems to be working great!
