Using PUTTY

Tracy
 

​For those of  you attempting to use PUTTY, I have had success with the following parameters, presuming you have entered the correct address, try

Under Seesion:  Telnet

​Under Terminal:  Local Echo Auto,  Local line editing Force off​

Under Keyboard:  Backspace is Control-H

​Under Connection Telnet:  Handling of OLD_ENVIRON ambiguity, BSD and Return key sends Telnet New LIne instead of ^M​

​Given the number of config permutations, if someone finds a parameter that improves anything let us know.​
