It is off-subject, and thanks for apologizing. A Macintosh is abbreviated
as "Mac", not MAC. A MAC is hardware address or the name of the origital
computer science project: Man and Computers. The terminal emulation
program you want is the shareware Zterm, which supports color ANSI BBS. I
have no idea what "doorway" mode is. Zterm may be found at,, and mirrors thereof. Just
for your information, these types of questions are best posted to the
comp.sys.mac.comm USENET newsgroup. Enjoy!
