Anyone know any cheap or free SCO ANSI Terminal emulation programs?

Slayer_
Our current terminal emulator doesn't work for 64bit Windows and the company that built our current solution went belly up in 2000 so no updates. So we need a new one. Free or cheap per seat for about 500+ seats (we expect this number to reach 1000 in the next 2 years).

Anyone know of any?

We have this licensed for thousands of clients, and it better and faster than the expensive commercial product that we used to use.

You can try it for free.

Though its a tad expensive, 500 seats is $83,000. That's a bit much...
Or I am looking at this wrong...

Trust me for 500 users you can get it much cheaper than the 10 pack price.

For 500 users, you might want to consider their Server version. You can also get an Enterprise license.

FacetWin is what we use and it works just fine for SCO ANSI on Unix. (SCO 5.0.6) Commercial but cheap enough, and has all the F keys.

free = putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/). no frills, but works.
cheap = anzio-lite (at 500 seats, goes for $19 each, at 1000, its $17 per) - http://www.anzio.com/product/anzio-lite
better = anzio-win (at 500 seats, goes for $32 each, at 1000 its $26 per) -
http://www.anzio.com/product/anziowin
anzio-win adds cool scripting and printing stuff - see http://www.anzio.com/content/anzio-lite-and-anziowin-differences for differences.
I am not associated with any of the above.

Can Putty do SCO ANSI?

ANSI should be ANSI, but isn't mentioned much in the docs, and PuTTY does Unix. All I could suggest is to try it. It's free.
