There were quite a lot of programs of the PCAnywhere / Carbon Copy type. At least earlier versions supported 640K machines, but they'd be finnicky to use by today's expectations.
For server administration though, graphics typically weren't needed. I'd be highly surprised if most network server software couldn't enable a Telnet / BBS-door-like functionality.
Edit: didn't notice age of thread. Oh well 😀
Thank you very much for the information! 😁
Seems PC Anywhere was originally made by Dynamic Microprocessor Associates, Inc.,
before it was bought by "evil" Symantec, so I may give it a try.
Here's some description that I found:
Version 4.5 adds the ability to control Windows 3.0 remotely from DOS, scripting, and Ethernet IPX networking support.
It boasted the fastest, most responsive remote sessions of all competing remote control applications. It competed against CO/Session, Close Up, Commute, and Carbon Copy.
