    I've used Terminal as my Telnet application for Packet Cluster for many years now. Recently however, I'm encountering a form of a "dead session" phenomena that has me stumped. Recently, the site VE7CC has become one of those "dead session" sites for me.

    telnet dxc.ve7cc.net (my command)
    Connected to dxc.ve7cc.net.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    *** Connected to VE7CC-1:
    Greetings from the VE7CC-1 cluster.
    Located near Vancouver BC
    Running CC Cluster software version 3.101c

    Yet, at the point where I enter my call, the session become INOP. Terminal itself does not think the session is closed, however.

    However, if Terminal is launched through a link on a web page as found on bcdxc.org, my login is successful and DX spots flow. The line of code within the bcdxc.org web page is:

    "telnet://dxc.ve7cc.net:23" (no surprises here)

    Of course, I have also tried starting a Telnet session with port 23 specified without success. I am guessing that something is different in the Terminal environment when launched from Safari, but I can't guess what.

    OS 10.11.6

    Thanks in advance!
