    tn3270, protocol wise, is nothing more than telnet, so you can try "telnet <host>" to see if it is functional enough for you.

    I used telnet before to emulate TN5250, and the only issue I had was function keys not mapping properly.

    Hm, sounds like you need to set you $TERM environmental variable to match the system you're trying
    to connect to.

    Something similar to this:

    export TERM
