Indy Telnet console app in Kylix 2/ RH 7.1

     Can someone explain why in Kylix2 on RedHat Linux 7.1 this application
 doesn't respond?

     The source of this tiny simple, console app is here:

     Of course, replace the Host address with a valid telnet server address.

     I want a console app that I can use the IdTelnet component in.  Why
 doesn't the TdmTelnet.IdTelnetDataAvailable event fire?  When I run this
 with a valid host address, I get just the connected message.  No data event
 fires.  Why?

    Help help!
