OK, that explains my issue. :) It's a shame as Twilight Term looks to be
a decent program. I never used it back in the day as I left the Coco just
as the Coco 3 was arriving.
I know Brett has this working under Fuzix as well. I will try using
NitrOS9 with the commands you specified. Any good term programs you can
recommend? I think Barry Nelson had one he made that may work.
