I have a Linux System running in a LAN environment.
In may LAN I have a terminal-server from DEC (DEC-Communacations-Server 500)
which is able to establish TELNET Sessions.
On this Terminal-Server there are several VT420 Terminals wich I would like to
use for editing on the Linux-Machine.
After logging in I use the command "eval $(tset -s vt220)" to set up termcap
properly. The Terminal is in 7-Bit mode and all seems to be funny.
Now comes the problem:
To use emacs I need the Control-X Key. But this key will not work with my
VT. The second spooky thing is, that the first key-sequence, emacs gets is
a Control-S. From where does the Control-S come??
Can someone help me to setup this configuration properly??
Please E-mail to
