Hi,

it depends on what you mean by "work together".

You can dial into MSN using Trumpet Winsock or something like that (at least you can here in Germany, the procedure is: Use PPP, use CHAP, log in as "MSN/user-id" with your MSN password), and then use tiny term to connect to some machine on the Internet.

You could, even, access the MSN web pages this way by tinyterming into a machine that has lynx installed.

You can not, however, navigate MSN itself through tiny term. It is designed to work exclusively with the Win95 client. Of course, if you use MSN just as an ISP, that is not an issue.

Sorry, forget that concept. Tiny Term doesn't have the calls needed.

I have not used v.3.2

Remember the design goal of Tiny Term was TINY.
It is the smallest emulator I know of!
That does bring trade offs.....

I still suspect you dead in the water on this one.

I doubt that MSN would allow term sessions.  They don't even have a client for Win3.1!!  Why would they allow term?  I don't even think AOL supports term anymore.  Only Prodigy and Compuserve still do for sure.  Of course, I might be off (which does happen, however, infrequently :).  

If MSN does support term sessions, then get a copy of Qmodem (Not the PRO, but the freeware version.  This supports just about everything, but is DOS ONLY.  Until I got a PPP login, Qmodem and a few BBS's were my gateway to the NET.
