I'm starting to use telnet for remote access and control of others windows pc. The problem that I'm facing is that when i start the VIM program the telnet session hangs and it doesn't respond to any key press. What is the reason behind that?

I've seen this happen when using PuTTy to ssh to a UWIN instance via localhost.
Vim for Windows assumes it is running inside a Windows console window, which is not the case when all you've got is a remote ANSI terminal emulator.
