It is strongly recommended that you use a proper VT-100 terminal
emulation. This is the default terminal type for Victoria Telecommunity Network and will
result in the best results (provided your communications software
uses a close match to the official VT-100 standard.
Other VT-xxx terminal emulations will also usually work. If you are using
VT-200 you should tell VTN to use VT-200 also.
Other terminal emulations may also work. You should always try to set
both your software and the VTN software to the same
emulation. If VTN does not support the terminal emulation
that you need to use you may have to experiment with the various terminal
emulations available at Victoria Telecommunity Network to find the one that works best
with your software.
If you are using VT-100, ...at the Terminal Type? (VT 100) prompt,
press [Enter] or [Return].
