Offered by Windows Telnet, VTNT differs from other terminal types. It is designed to facilitate remote display of DOS Windows.


There are no available implementations of telnet servers that implement support for this terminal type. Is it possible that this terminal type might allow Windows Telnet to be an uber mud client in the hands of server which did implement support for it? This needs to be explored. It might redeem Windows telnet for all its other lackings.
