Way for a Terminal on a Windows PC to show Sixel Graphics?

Hi,
does anybody know a way to show Sixel Graphics in a MS-Windows-11 terminal?
I have a WLAN Telnet connection using Teraterm, which unfortunately does not support Sixel Graphics. I have tried different things but have not succeeded and would be happy for some hints..
Thanks, Christof

    Did you ever experimented-with/heard-about Wezterm?

    Thanks for pointing me at wezterm.
    I finally was able to connect to the host by starting Microsoft Telnet inside the wezterm Windows console. Unfortunately with this setup the terminal does not recognize the start sequence Esc Pq for sixel.
    Same for MobaXterm.
    Thanks anyway! Christof

    You're welcome!

    Pity it doesn't work the way it was expected to, perhaps there's something in the "middle", filtering-out the sixel-enableing escape sequence (or whatever)...

    As an alternative, perhaps XTerm configured to work as a VT340-emulator (with some Sixel-enableing steroids; just take a look at the second link bellow) can do it:

    Fingers crossed here :smile:

  • Thanks again, Henrique!
    I wanted to experiment with sixel graphics to see, if this brings good benefit for me.

    Afer having spent a bunch of hours I give up. The combination of xterm with telnet and Windows is not well covered. Xterm or vt340 with ssh and Windows would perhaps be more easy.
    At the moment I will focus on Tek4014 graphics.....
