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.

what other emulations do you have? What is your unix server platform and version?

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.
