Not working correctly with Synchronet

I tried this app with Synchronet BBS and it doesn't show colors and the screen doesn't format correctly. Need to use SyncTerm for this BBS.

Nice start...

Handy little utility, but it's a bit slow. Also, I need to be able to send a simple space character for those "press spacebar to continue" situations. It would also be nice to export/import/sync settings to SkyDrive.

No.

I deleted this app the fourth time it decided to randomly delete all my bookmarks. Returning to a session causes it to animate the scrollback of the entire session to the bottom for about 20 seconds. No SSL support. Slightly less useful than just typing "telnet" into powershell.

sucks

Counter intuitive

Might be useful for someone

But not me. Fails to connect to some sites, etc.

Meh

I figured Telnet would be built in. This should be free and support SSH, Serial, Telnet etc. It does work for Telnet ONLY. I'm waiting for a PuTTY or Vandyke app.

Awesome

I love this app! :D

No SSH

Connects fine over telnet. I didn't test too much functionality besides connecting. Doesn't support SSH, so be wary of what you're doing remotely. The app does appropriately warn you of this danger when you first start it.

Doesn't work.

Doesn't seem to work with AIX or USS. Oh well, at least Putty still works with W8.
