Reach Mainframes and BBSs via the Internet

Version 2.0 of Van Dyke Technologies' CRT Winsock Terminal Emulator Available for Free 30-day trial

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (July 16, 1997) — Need to reach VMS systems, UNIX® systems, BBSs or library databases? Version 2.0 of CRT, Van Dyke Technologies Inc.'s award-winning Winsock terminal emulator makes it simple. And you can try it for 30 days free.

CRT works under Windows 95, Windows NT and Windows 3.1. It's a complete, 32-bit terminal emulator designed for Internet or Intranet use, supporting both the telnet and rlogin protocols.

With CRT, remote sites can be easily accessed just by entering a hostname. This includes systems running UNIX and VMS under VT100, VT102, VT220 and ANSI emulations as well as many computer bulletin board systems and databases.

CRT is packed with features, like named sessions, auto login, printing, zmodem file transfer, emacs mode, and SOCKS firewall support. But now it has much more, including:

  • A Graphical Toolbar for easy access to often used features
  • File based scripting
  • A Custom Keymap Editor
  • Mapping of menu functions to keyboard combinations, turning complex command strings into a single-key command
  • Mapping of other CRT functions to keyboard combinations, so those parts of the program you use most often are one keystroke away

You'll also discover a new Find dialog for searching scrollback buffers, customizable ANSI colors, a new column select feature, a new underline cursor, an easy reconnect when connections abort and close, a menu allowing you to easily switch among CRT sessions, and a local echo option.

CRT is attractively priced, especially if multiple copies are needed. A single computer license is $30.00; a 25 computer license is available for $500.00.
