Does anyone know the escape sequence for writing to the title bar of a Windows telnet session?  When I telnet to unix I like to write the current directory and other info in the title bar of the window I'm in.  I know the escape sequences for xterm and sun-cmd windows, but I can't find the escape for a Windows 95 telnet window.  Thanks.

There is no escape sequence.  Windows isn't as 'friendlly' as Unix.  The only thing you're going to get in the title bar is the name of the computer you connected to.  Its in the code, and they don't give provisions to change it.

Thanks.  Maybe I can find an alternative to Microsoft's telnet that is friendlier to Unix.
