I believe there are two separate questions. The Win32 port has some
support for the mouse, but I am not sure how much. This is said to
work on the NT. Try downloading the binary and associated files from:

When connected to unix via Kermit, I don't think mouse support is
possible, but it is even more convenient to navigate with either the
hjkl "vi keys" or to use the GOTO function, to go to the numbered link
or form of your choice. Just use any recent version of lynx on unix
and set "vi keys" on and "links and form fields are numbered". If
your ISP doesn't have a recent version of lynx (currently at 2.8.2dev
series, latest release version 2.8.1), you can compile your own. The
autoconfigure procedure makes this easy on most systems. You may want
to start at "";.
