Terminal Emulator / Telnet FAQ
By Chris De Herrera, Copyright 1999-2003

Windows CE Handheld PCs ship with a very weak terminal emulator which does not include binary file transfer or telnet support.  The Palm-size PC and Pocket PCs do not ship with a terminal emulator application.  This FAQ lists some of the options for users looking for specific solutions to connect to their hosts.


The most common terminal emulation is DEC VT100.  Most hosts support this functionality, including the IBM AS/400.
