Telnet to SCO UNIX from SUSE Linux Workstation

i am new to Linux, i am trying to connect SCO Unix from SUSE LINUX Workstation but i am unable to define the terminal type.

i have also downloaded terminal softwares but function keys (f1, f2....) and some other keys are displaying code instead of working the correct function.

is there any one who can tell me how to make a telnet session with SCO UNIX using vt102 emulation and also map the function keys with the telnet session.

it is very easy in windows i was using QVT software but i can find any software which is similar to QVT and also a free ware.

Try PuTTy it is freeware and works well. It also has predefined vtxxx settings.

google for 'download putty'

PuTTY would be for windows users, mostly.

I would try this at the commandline

export TERM=vt102
