For some it works, for others it doesn't. SimH does not do exact
simulation (for at least PDP-11 and VAX architectures) so its
machine footprint to the operating system software is rather
messy and confusing. That said.. it's decent. I use it for
VAX, mostly.

Correct. So good luck on standalone systems, or on Win32 platforms in
a command window. I did a VT module for it, as well as someone else,
but Bob dumped it and favored the "telnet console" method.
