Jim,

I've been using Chameleon TCP/IP from NetManage for several months now and find 
it to be a very slick package. The memory requirements are small (approx 20K) 
since it is a true Windows implementation, not a kludge built upon dos TSRs. 
The package does telnet, FTP, has a news reader, and a POP3 mail client. 
Overall very nice. The one drawback is price, about $400 for the package. It 
also includes a WinSock interface that works great with the Gopher+ client I've 
got running.
