Thank you guys for the help
Changing my prompt to a variant of *option* wont help as i am not receiving that data.
The suggestion re VT100 sounds most promising. I dont fully understand it, but this is exactly whats happening. my telnet client just sits there waiting for some data. It could be this.
Any more experts on VT100, and whether this could be the problem?
