Sco 3.2 and PuTTY

Is there anyway to the function keys to work on PuTTY when remoting into a SCO 3.2 server?

According to this reference:

Chapter 4: Configuring PuTTY | PuTTY User Manual (putty-0.68-manual)

Quote:
In SCO mode, the function keys F1 to F12 generate ESC [M through to ESC [X. Together with shift, they generate ESC [Y through to ESC [j. With control they generate ESC [k through to ESC [v, and with shift and control together they generate ESC [w through to ESC [{.

If you don't know what any of this means, you probably don't need to fiddle with it.

Generally, function keys behave in the manner determined by the terminal type set, e.g. VT100 or whatever.

The important thing is to ensure that the terminal type that SCO thinks it has connected, set by the TERM variable, agrees exactly with the terminal type that PuTTY is set to emulate.

I guess that's where my problem is. I need to know...

I have pcs running Windows XP and QvtTerm, which works fine, but I need to upgrade away from those pcs and QvtTerm won't run on Win 7 nor 10.

Otherwise, the keys on the keyboard won't map correctly to the keys that the O/S is expecting.

Set the host terminal type to scoansi and set the putty function keys to sco and the backspace to ctrl h. Set the terminal to 25 lines. I generally set the scrollback to zero.

And to add more, I have an old application titled DCPA(Data Capture Processing Application). And it is in this software that I rely on the function keys.
