ol.sc had contacted me, telling me that he intends to make a new release of Telnet65, and if I'd like
to port it to Atari for this release.
I accepted and the port is finished now.
Telnet65 is a VT100 Telnet client. I guess it can best be described as remake of Kipperterm. Like Kipperterm it
is based on IP65 combined with VT100 code of Cater (http://www.opppf.de/Cater/).
Telnet65 is based on the latest IP65 code and the latest Cater code. Additionally support for line drawing as seen
i.e. in Midnight Commander was added.
Telnet65 for Atari writes directly into the screen memory for speed reasons. It uses the default 40x24 text screen.
Therefore no custom E: handlers (XEP80, VBXE) are supported currently.
Full source code can be found at https://github.com/oliverschmidt/ip65, and precompiled binaries at
I've attached a bootable ATR file containing TELNET65.COM. I couldn't attach TELNET.COM ("cannot attach this type of file" stupidity), so it's inside the ZIP.
