EWAN is a Telnet and terminal emulator for PCs with MS Windows 3.1 or later with a winsock 1.1 compliant TCP/IP stack installed. It includes DEC VT52, VT100, and ANSI emulations. As emulations are defined by external DLLs and linked to the emulator at run time, the emulation capabilities can be extended by any one who is able to create Windows DLLs.
