I'm sorry about this .. why not grab XMosaic or www and run it on
your rs6000? There is something which never works when telnetting
to a next from an rs6000 (www apart) which I don't want to tangle
with now. (One of my hariest days was trying to debug a NeXT when
all I had was an rs600 to access it from!)

You could also try out another telnet server -- there's a list in
the W3 FAQ which you can't read because it all comes in columns
1 and 80 ... ;-)

Tim --

I still have the problem I signalled 6 or 8 months ago, i.e., if i
telnet to from an rs6k, the result is garbage: Most of
the output is written to columns 1 and 80. At that time, someone
yes, it was an error. But from where? Anything to be done?

Thanks in advance -- John

P.S. for Bebo -- Wonder if you see this at SLAC, where you use
