Using Term to Pierce an Internet Firewall: Telnet mode

Be sure the remote telnetd is not in some nasty seven-bit mode. Or if it is, you have to tell term about it when you invoke term, by adding the -a switch at both ends. (I sometimes use « ^] telnet> set outbin » or « set bin » or invoke telnet with a -8 switch to put the connection into eight-bit mode.)
