Creating a Telnet server

Recommended Posts

zackriggle    130
I am looking for something to keep me occupied until summer starts, and I figure that I ought to do something that has a lot to do with the internet, sockets, and networking in general. Since Telnet has been around for awhile, I chose it. Would anyone point me towards an RFC or documentary on the Telnet protocol? That is, unless you simply receive the commands as text, and send the replies back in text. However, I doubt this is the case. Any help would be welcomed. Thanks. [XtaC]

go to www.rfc-editor.org .. they have all the RFCs and i''m pretty sure the telnet specification is among them.

None of that is really required (unless you want to implement file transfer or other advanced features).. i have created a simple program that would let you see the contents of your assigned directories and subdirectories based on your privileges in java (very good for this kind of program.. unfortunately, it adds a carriage return at the end of every sent message i think).. all you have to do is send and recieve text.. very simple..
