This information may be a bit outdated, since it is more than a decade
since I worked daily with VMS.

This only happens if you have the set terminal/inquire command in the
sylogin.com or login.com command files. With non-VT100/200/300 series
compatible terminals connected to a host, it is better to leave out
this command at least from sylogin.com, since the sequence might cause
havoc with these terminals.

If I remember correctly, there is a command like
that at least prevents sending out C1 controls, but I do not remember,
what it does to input characters in the C1 range.
