    If it already reads ttyvc0, what is it you ewant to change? And why?

    The application is configured so that the console name is ttyvc0. Some
    of the characters come up funky, so I thought I would try to make the
    new server look like the old one, and see if that would work. There is
    an area in the app where you can specify the terminal type.

    I will have to check if there is also tty01. I did take a look at
    /etc/inittab, and it was modified to reflect ttyvc0.

    ^^^^^
    But is this required? I see in your 'who' output that other users are
    logged on - Do you have this problem on non-console screens on the
    5.0.7 system?

    That would be one of *many* places.

    Does the /etc/ttytype entry for ttyvc0 on the 3.2v4.2 box match the
    entry for tty01 on the 5.0.7 system? What does the 'ortho' user's
    ..profile do, if anything, with the TERM environment variable?

    There have been reports in this group regarding legacy apps / 5.0.x
    and screens not drawing correctly - You may need to play with mapchan.

    That's probably terminal emulation. Run "mkdev scoansi"

    If that doesn't help, visit [url]http://aplawrence.com/search.html[/url] and
    type "scoansi" into the search box.

    Also check that /etc/ttytype is correct for this..
