SyncTERM is an ANSI-BBS terminal designed to connect to remote BBSs via telnet, rlogin, or SSH.

Supports ANSI music and the IBM charset when possible.
What's New
Version 0.9.2:
  • [Fixed] data_waiting() doesn't return TRUE when the connection is gone away. As a result, a disconnection wasn't properly detected after the last commit.
  • [Fixed] Loop on input to avoid "slowness" on Win32 which is basically a result of SyncTERM being too "nice"
  • [Fixed] Add an install target.
  • [Fixed] Include /usr/local/include Pass PREFIX through to GCC
  • [Fixed] Use PREFIX/etc for global list.
  • [Fixed] Expand the max syspass to 40 chars.
  • [Fixed] Add support for STATIC_LINK
  • [Fixed] Set the ID for newly added list entries. Prevents bug where usage stats for newly added items weren't updated until after the list was re-read.
  • [Fixed] Prevent NULL dereference.
  • [Fixed] Fix bug in last commit.
  • [Fixed] Save/restore current screen on an upload.
  • [Fixed] Remove USE_CRYPTLIB stuff. Cryptlib support is always compiled in now. (Of course, you'll still need the cryptlib LIBRARY for it to actually work)
  • [Fixed] Fix cryptlib OBJS addition
  • [Fixed] Add uifcinput() function (used to get password when blank)
  • [Fixed] Fix function key sequences (was sending one byte short)
  • [Fixed] Bix bug when build with SSH support.
  • [Fixed] Check the return value of initciolib()
  • [Fixed] Initialize y before using it (heh)
  • [Fixed] If the SSH password is blank, prompt for it during connection.
  • [Fixed] Add K_PASSWORD mode to not echo input back.
  • [Fixed] Fix mouse mis-selection bug on non full-sized lists.
  • [Fixed] Fix possible segfault when no *bar is passed.

I concur with Bedouin. Here we are in the third quarter of 2008, and my experience has been that SyncTERM, (now up to version 0.9.2) is STILL the ONLY telnet client for Mac OSX, (and a free one at that), which properly displays ANSI graphics on BBSes. Every other telnet client I have tried has had problems of one kind or another with ANSI display.

Up to this very day, the developer of the Mac OSX version of SyncTERM, (Stephen Hurd), continues to make improvements to the client, and is to be applauded. Hopefully, we will see a more Mac-like GUI for the program in the future. Job well done Stephen!

It would be great if this supported rs-232 serial ports also.

The 0.9.2 version does support RS-232 connections as well as PTY and modem

This is the *ONLY* terminal emulator for OS X that properly emulates DOS ANSI characters letting you telnet to on-line BBS's and enjoy ANSI art and door games the way they were intended. Plus the interface is reminiscent of ProComm, Telix, Terminate, etc. It makes you fell like it's 1993 again.

Thanks to the developer for putting this out there. A universal binary might be nice, but it runs nicely under Rosetta.
