mTCP Telnet client for DOS logo

mTCP Telnet is a telnet client for DOS that allows you to connect to other systems running telnet servers, telnet BBSes, or online MUDs (multi-user dungeons, the original online virtual worlds.) Telnet includes ANSI terminal emulation so that you should be able to enjoy color and cursor control on the systems you are connecting to.
