ERALink32 is a customised version of IBM's wIntegrate software. It is essentially a glorified telnet client that allows automotive dealers to access the ERA Dealer Management System which ironically runs on a version of Unix. As it is a simple telnet client, it would seem easier to run a different program to make this connection. There are two very good reasons why this isn't possible. Firstly, ERALink32 includes special interfaces to a server program that cannot be duplicated by a regular telnet client. Second...most telnet clients do not support Televideo 955/965 emulation which is also a requirement.
