Cannot type properly in telnet window (windows Xp & SCO Unix)

Hello friends,

I am using telnet from windows xp to connect to SCO Unix. Since i am used to telnet environment given by linux from windows, this one is annoying.

The cursor movements has no boundary, causing me to type control characters accidentally, which makes it difficult to navigate, type at command prompt or correct mistakes.

Is there any method to make the telnet editing environment or cursor behavior work like the telnet from linux. Thanks.

Random suggestion: You could try using the "putty" client, which can do telnet mode. This is much more configurable than windows telnet.
