The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the
University of Illinois has prepared and is distributing a telnet package
for IBM compatibles and Macintoshes. It has many features that we haven't
found in anyone else's software. If you have trouble getting it to run,
make sure I get a full description of your hardware setup including DOS
version. I hope you like it.

release info:

National Center for Supercomputing Applications presents:

NCSA Telnet for the PC, version 1.1

These programs are copyrighted, but distributed in binary form with

possibility of distributing linkable libraries which support TCP/IP.

DARPA standard telnet
Built-in standard FTP server for file transfer

Class A,B and C addressing with standard subnetting

Capture text to a file (PC)
Full color support (PC)

How to obtain:
Anonymous FTP from in the NCSA subdirectory.

The PC version is a tar file which contain binary files. After the
files are extracted from the tar file, some binary transfer (e.g.
kermit) should be used to download the files to the PC. The
Macintosh version is several files encoded with BinHex 4.0. Download
them with a similar transfer method (kermit) and use BinHex 4.0 to
extract the files. Printable documentation is included with each
version; the Mac documentation is in MacWrite format. After
downloading, you may copy the files as often as you wish, unmodified,
in binary form, with the copyright notices intact.

The PC version is also on this dial-up BBS:
