    Telnet under the Win7 command window is a pain, I also find that it
    throws up some spurious characters when editing source files. Any
    suggestions re a telnet counterpart that provides full windows
    capability, including scroll bars, font and colour selection? Googling
    Telnet seems to come up with nothing but .... Telnet.

  2. Try searching for PuTTY and Tera Term.

    You could install cygwin, which includes an X server and xterms, but
    that's a bit like hitting a nail with a sledgehammer.

  4. It also includes a decent telnet client and console window if you'd
    like to try a smaller hammer...
