Great idea! Almost perfect!
This is a great idea, and works really well for a beta. I must say I'm impressed. The only things that are problems for me are that you can't change your background color... If I want to use BitchX, some things aren't readable because they are in white text... on white. I'd like to be able to chose my own background color. Also, it seems to run into some sort of problem with some connections... If I try to rsh somewhere after connecting, it doesnt talk to me after I enter the password. The same thing happens when telnetting into my favorite BBS, only this happens after I choose my display type.
Beyond some pretty minor issues, I very cool program, and well done. This was the only method (out of a great many) that allowed me to successfully reach my home Linux box from behind my strict work firewall.
