Might use 3270 emulation.

What is the exact name of what you want to do?

Could run x windows or x over ssh or something like that.

The server is a IBM Point of Sale system running 4690 ACE.
The ACE application has menu options like File, Transactions, etc. on the local console, I can access these menus using a mouse, or by pressing Alt-F or Alt-T
But with a Telnet session, I don't have a mouse, and I I don't know how ot send Alt-F, Alt-T, etc.

Kind of wonder how old that is if it let's you telnet in.

I would still consider any 3270 to work with an IBM system and IBM program.

Kind of depends on a few things. You might try ctrl-a to work as an alt key. Assumes a lot of stuff.

Might have to map keyboard. See techet for map key telnet.

See this from IBM news.
