I was wondering are you talking about c-kermit (Linux) here??? I had the 
same fight trying on a linux console to let c-kermit emulate a xenix-co 
terminal, because a AIX application wants to see a xenix-co terminal on the 
others side of the line.

I never got it working because c-kermit unlike ms-kermit does not support 
terminal emulation. I wish it did!!!!

Have you found a way to translate the send-out ascii string of the <F>-keys 
as well?? If so, I am very interested how you did this. That would give me 
a solution for my problem as well!!
