How to Set Up dataComet to allow Mac to run applications on a UNIX server

I have downloaded dataComet onto an IMAC computer to serve as a terminal emulator to run applications on a UNIX Server. How can I get directions on setting up this application? We have previously used J.River's ICE-TCP PRO as the terminal emulator for the PC's. The gentleman at databeast was quite helpful, but the setup was more complicated than he could walk me through.

omarfarid: Actually, the article did help. It allowed me to make a connection and run the application on setting the emulator as scoansi the funciion keys do not work.

omarfarid: The UNIX operating system is SCO Open Server Release 5.
In dataComet the emulations for:
Terminal type are: Automatic, SCO-Ansi, VT52, VT100, VT102, VT220, VT220, IBM 3278, and IBM 3279.

Host Menus and function keys are: Automatic, IBM 3270, IBM 5250, ICSA Telnet, Linux, scoansi, xterm, 386at, wyse-60, and UNIX tn3270.

In the J.River's ICE-TCP PRO emulator which we are using on the PC's the only choice is "Terminal type" and for that our selection is ANSI (25 line)

I am going to close this question.  dataComet appears to be a good product but I cannot get an emulation that will cause the Function keys to operate.  I will repost the question asking specifically about the function keys.
