Best terminal program for Adam

Post by Wmaalouli » Mon Jul 13, 2020 12:05 am

Hi.
I'm looking at connecting a WiModem Wifi modem to the Adam so I can telnet into BBS's. I do have a serial card, but need to know what the best terminal emulator is for the Adam and where to find it (I assume in the archive).
Any suggestions?

Does it have the option of setting the terminal width by any chance?
Is there an EOS based terminal program out there?

I use ADAMLink V (1992) (Tom Clary Software - Rich Drushel Software) with my WiModem232 and MIB2 card. It's an EOS program that is also capable of driving 80 column mode on the MIB2 terminal connection. I use a terminal program on my Windows machine next to my ADAM to display on.

I used this setup for a couple weeks and quickly got bored with it. There just isn't much to do when it comes to the ADAM and BBSing. I also wish they finished PLATOTERM for the ADAM, but it looks like it will never happen.

If you're bored of that MIB2 card, I'll gladly take it off your hands! :mrgreen:
