If you're using telnet to communicate between two QNX machines (QNX 4 or Neutrino), use the -8 option to enable an eight-bit data path. If you're connecting to a Neutrino box from some other operating system, and the terminal isn't behaving properly, quit from telnet and start it again with the -8 option.

Note: To telnet from Windows to a Neutrino machine, use ansi or vt100 for your terminal type.
