When logged into the device with ZOC, it now has a [25;26H escape code

I found a PC with a serial port. Loaded up ArcaOS on it. Guess what? The serial port works perfect. No extra characters when typing into a serial session. I tried two USB->Serial adapters and they both have the same behaviour with the escape sequences. I'm guessing it has something to do with the USBCOM.SYS and it's PL2303 support, perhaps there is something with my two adapters and the way their PL2303 chipset.. ZOC is working great and so is HyperAccess Lite with the plain USBCOM.SYS.

I've numerous PL2303 adapters which do not send/receive extra characters. Neither with the old PL2303 driver from hobbes nor with the latest usbcom from ArcaNoae.

Weird, right? Maybe these have counterfeit chips  ;D These PL2303 based adapters are no names. I have a few more that I will try out.

What does this
Quote
[25;26H
mean in HEX values? Are these 2, 3 or more bytes?

I ran lsusb for each USB-> serial adapter, and they are the same.

As a child of the BBS era, I can safely assume that those are ANSI escape sequences:

Sounds like your ZOC terminal emulation on the working host is probably ANSI and on the non-working host probably VT100?

That's what I was thinking. But the host is VT100. I tried changing the terminal emulation and that didn't help.
