I am using a 486PC in my lab with Windows 3.1 and Trumpet Winsock to 
connect by ethernet to a VAX computer running GCG Vers. 8.0.  I have used 
NCSA Telnet 2.6 or 2.7b on a Macintosh to emulate tektronix 4014 and 4107 
terminals that can be configured using the 'tek' command on the VAX.  
This is useful for graphical output from GCG such as dot plots or 
phylogenetic trees.  Is there a good telnet program with a tektronix 
emulator available for Windows?  NCSA is apparently not developing a 
comparable program for Windows machines. I am currently using WinQVT 
because it supports copy/paste and was relatively easy to configure.

Thanks for the assistance.  Please email/post suggestions.
