When I do dpkg-reconfigure console-setup there isn't the CP437, how can I enable it? I've installed the console-data package, put the ACM cp437 on the /etc/default/console-setup, rebooted and run setupcon and run my application, but nothing happens.

Actually it's pretty clear. OP is trying to connect to a telnet service with codepage 437 (also known as Extended ASCII) which is not supported by Ubuntu. – user426293 Mar 16 at 14:20
