Using TCC.exe through an SSH connection

Is there some way to configure TCC so that it will not attempt any window popups and funnel its I/O through the STDIN and STDOUT streams? When I run that shell through an SSH connection, I typically have no convenient way to access the desktop or use a mouse to do anything in another window. So I want something more like the old 4NT -- a great CLI-only shell. Is there a way to run any CLI-only version of the JPSoftware shell on a modern Windows platform?

You can get rid of the command history and directory history GUI popups with the INI directive

Code:
ConsolePopupWindows=Yes
You'll get the old (4NT) style lists in the console. I don't know how they will work in a remote session.

They don't work well, even in a local session. I've called attention to that in another thread.

Thanks, Vince. Now if I could just persuade the list command's search to do without a new, modal dialog window, TCC v26 would be close to perfectly usable without access to the desktop. I suppose I can use aliases to use another lister as a work-around for my unthinking (muscle memory) use of list.
