The Internet provider, be it your educational institution or a commercial provider, is running Internet applications on its mainframe computer, such as telnet and ftp while you are running a software such as Procomm or Crosstalk to enable your computer to emulate a VT100
OCLC Gateway Software is compatible with many kinds of computer equipment, ranging from OCLC workstations and PCs running PASSPORT (OCLC communications software), to Apple and other computers running VT100
emulation packages, IBM 3270 terminals, commonly used local system terminals, and other public-access machines.
It interfaces with AT&T's Sceptr terminals, as well as with Prestel and Digital's VT100
Combine this with VT100
terminal emulation and you'll spend the better part of a day trying to open up a file without sending it to oblivion.
Intelligent Technologies International of Palo Alto, California also provides access to IBM and Digital host computers with its PC Express, which emulates 327X terminals for SNA network applications, as well as Digital's VT52 and VT100
MultiExpress for Windows provides emulation of VT100
, ANSI, and IBM 3101 terminals ensuring appropriate functions for the variety of remote systems, bulletin board systems, and mini/mainframe computers with which the user may wish to connect.
It supports all Digital's VT100
and VT200 video terminals and the firm's family of personal computers, as well as VT100-compatible terminals.
New front ends make the SALBIN interface seem clunky and the VT100
terminal emulation it provides unattractive.
Users' equipment must emulate a VT100
terminal to take advantage to these user-friendly screens.
* Is accessible from any terminal or PC that uses VT100
emulation, thereby eliminating the need for special hardware or software.
