New Linux P3NFS with VT100!
The new version V4.3 of P3NFS from some guys from university of Erlangen has all
features one could ever want! VT100 and VT220, filetransfer using X-/Y-Modem
and fileserver functions. If you just want a good VT100 emulation, have a look
at it! You can get the gzipped and tarred
version or a simple ZIP file.
