My setup: NT 4.0 SP3 on FAT, Cygwin b.19.1, coolview, Ohapkin
remote tools.

NT Emacs 19.34.6

Problem: How to run emacs on a console and from telnet sessions.

I am able to run emacs on a CMD console, but  I can't run it from
a bash console. Also if I start bash and then cmd within bash, I
can't run emacs -nw. The message is

emacs -nw try
emacs: standard input is not a tty

Anybody knows a workaround for this?
