Atari ST VT-100 Terminal Emulator Cartridge - problems.

re: Atari ST VT-100 Terminal Emulator Cartridge.

Environment: Colour Mega ST 2, with SmartLink 2400 modem.

Last weekend I bought the this VT-100 Emulator from "What's This" here
in Kitchener. Yesterday when our phone was reconnected to the rest of
the world, I actually started trying to setup the emulator for a
session. I had trouble with parity and bit settings.

In my normal communications environment I use the VT-52 emulator
accessory with GEM Kermit. I set the RS232 to 7 bits, even parity,
strip bit on (1 stop bit). With the accessory I have no trouble
getting the modem to respond with OK. If I change parity fine. If
I change to 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop nit  no problem with the accessory.

Now if I plug the cartridge in and power up again, I find that the only
format I can talk to the modem in is 8 bits, no parity (I assume
1 stop bit since there is no parameter in SET-UP B for it). When ever
I change to 7 bits, any parity, my modem refuses to echo characters and
respond with OK. I tried for an hour to get the modem to talk to the
VT-100 emulator using 7 bits. No frigging luck.

Is this a bug with the cartridge program or I'm doing something wrong?

1. WTB: VT-100 Terminal Program

I am new to Atari and I need a vt-100 terminal program.
I have Lynx access to the internet, but no terminal program.
Does Ice-T XE work with an 800xl with 256k?
If you can tell me where to buy it, or if it's shareware/ freeware could
someone send me a copy in the mail?
