Telnet client and Orca

At the shell prompt do:

export TERM=vt100

Keep in mind, the TERM is in all uppercase.  A vt100 is pretty safe to use.  It will work both for plain text or runing under X in
an xterm.

You can add this command to your .profile file.  If you are using bash, it is .bashrc.

Hope that helps.
