Hi everybody
    When i log onto the school solaris host to do my projects using PuTTY
Telnet from my windows machine...I have modified my .emacs file to display
the colors that i like on the Sun SPARC workstations on campus and it works

    However, i want to see some color display in my PuTTY telnet window also
when I am using GNU Emacs, NOT XEmacs....The best i could come up with is
turning on the font-lock-mode and see the syntax in grayscale mode with some
of the syntax underlined and bolded....

     I really do remember that I have got the colors to display the PuTTY
terminal window once when one of my friends did something and I can't
remember what he did....But I ran into another problem again with the
Solaris workstations at the school after I get the syntax highlighting
workingn in my PuTTY telnet on my Microsoft Windows because the syntax
highlighting would not come up on the Sun machines anymore....

    I've been trying all kinds of things to get the syntax highlighting in
my PuTTY telnet window...
I've already tried setting the XTERM on my Solaris account to these and they
didn't work...
alias color setenv TERM xterm-color    <--- that's what some websites
suggested to do and change the
                                                           .cshrc file to
call  "color" at startup
alias regular setenv TERM vt100         <--- this is to reset it to normal
when the "color" does not work

Here are the version of the softwares.
        GNU Emacs   --->  20.6.1

OS Info....(according to "uname" command)
        Hardward Implementation --- SUNW, Untra-250
        Machine Hardware Class    --- sun4u
        Processor Type               --- sparc
        System Release Level       --- 5.7
        OS Name                       --- SunOS
        OS Version                    --- Generic_106541-19

The strange thing is that when I log onto a Linux host using PuTTY, I don't
even need to do
special things to get the syntax highlighting comes up

So, what do I do to get syntax highlighting available in my PuTTY Telnet
window when i log onto Solaris host ???

I'd really appreciate if anyone can help me get this thing working.....
