Not sure what you are looking to do....however, if you just want to
send/receive telnet spots you can simply use a null cable to connect
your two shack computer COM ports.  I have TR on a separate DOS PC in my
shack (along with my regular logging program) and have been using this
setup for some time now.  If you are looking for the connection to do
more than just send/receive telnet spots then some of the other info you
have received would probably be better.
