Telnet v1.33 is available both on MSX-HUB as well on my github.

MSXHUB using HUB.COM: HUB INSTALL TELNET, or, if you already have it, HUB UPGRADE TELNET
MSXHUB using HUBG.COM: If you have telnet installed, just select it in the menu and hit U key, if you don't, go to Remote tab by hitting R key and then go to the internet group hitting 4 key, select TELNET by hitting E key and then install it by hitting S key

If you want to directly download it or its source code, there is a release for it in my github:

https://github.com/ducasp/MSX-Development/releases/tag/TELNE...

Changes:

  • Farewell GZip, thanks for being with us in v1.32, time to rest friend!
  • New version of MSX2ANSI library with even better compatibility with nCurses applications running on host, this time I've worked on the scroll, insert and delete ANSI escape codes, which makes VI, VIM, IRRSI and others work like a charm, even though scroll is quite a bit slow (you know, move about 40KB of VRAM is not fast), perhaps it will get faster in future revisions, there is some room for improvment for sure
  • New version of MSX2ANSI library also works around an issue where Synchronet team that decided it is cool to send XTerm specific scape codes to terminals that report to be ANSI only, it will fix the strange codes popping up everywhere on HispaMSX
  • First release of a version that work with Zimodem ESP8266 firmware on Andrés Ortiz BadCat WiFi modem (it is not UNAPI based, it is working with FOSSIL driver), to use with it use TELNETF instead of TELNET

Please be kind with TELNETF, I still did not receive my BadCat due to a Strike Brazilian Post Office and both myself and Andrés are working hard on bringing cool things to BadCat, so, bugs and issues are expected and detailed reports of those are really welcome ;)

I received a GR8NET cartridge and have attempted to use your tool to connect. Machine is MSX1.
Connecting to my pi box works but no escape sequences are parsed, just dumped on the screen. When I log off, screen goes black and the machine hangs.
Connecting to sotano bbs also just dumps escape sequences and is not like in the videos provided in the badcat adapter thread. Am I missing something or this works only on MSX2 ?
In comparison TCPCON connects but only dumps garbage on screen.
Thanks

For MSX1 it works as a dumb terminal, no escape code parsing other than the few VT58 ones that msx supports. MSX1 do not have enough resolution for 16 colors 40 characters (I think at most 32 columns) and this isn't implemented or planned in the near future.

Now, exiting the program and having a black screen should have been fixed, are you using the version released two days ago? If so, I'll need to check, at least it was fixed for Bluemsx emulated MSX1, but of it doesn't work for you, there's something wrong that needs to be fixed, thanks for reporting

Yes, I am using 1.33, I guess the thing with black screen could be hardware specific which is not emulated well.
