VTERM is a PC telecommunications program designed to emulate the DEC VT100 and interface with Digital Equipment Corporation systems. In addition to emulating a terminal, it supports binary file transfers. VTERM was primarily targeted at large corporations that also owned, used, or interfaced with large VAX VMS or PDP systems.

VTERM II supports baud rates up to 9600, and file transfers using ASCII, VTRANS7, VTRANS7, or XMODEM. Later versions supported the Kermit file transfer protocol.

There was an earlier VTERM 1.x that reportedly worked under PC-DOS 1.1. A later version added Kermit file transfer support, there was a separate version that emulated a Tektronix 4010 terminal, and another separate version that emulated a VT220 terminal. VTERM II was eventually followed up with VTERM III.
