 |  Version: Tera Term 4.87


For the better part of my 25 year career as an engineer I have only used Tera Term as my terminal emulator. With this latest version... You broke it.


It doesn't work anymore. Since this latest version and the addition of so-called OPENSSH 6.8

I consistently get "A communication error occurred while sending an SSH packet. The connection will close. (WSAAsyncSelect1:10093) "

But PuTty works, and Tera Term Pro work exactly as they always have.

Seriously dissapointing as I have used this terminal emulator longer than any other in my 25 professional years in IT.

I can't figure it out or waste anymore time on it. Had to uninstall and go with Tera Term Pro.

Maybe one day when this is sorted out i will think of using it again.


Tera Term Pro does not have all the bells and whistles but it is dependable.

"Great Terminal Emulation program"

Reliable, convenient, allows creation of multiple connections to be reused in the future.


It does not allow color customization specific to a connection, at least I have not discovered how to do it.

"excellent terminal emulator"

 |  Version: Tera Term 4.85


ability to automatically creates logs with unique log names
ssh, standard telnet and serial port support
supports dec/digital/vt terminal standards


del function for dec vt (backspace/delete) needs setting up (not default)


if all you need is a vt emulation then this is far superior to the paid versions, and the automatic default logging is a clear bonus, but the file name setting can take a little getting used to. blows putty out of the water!

Yet to find any cons so that can't be bad
