Has anyone here implemented or heard of a telnet client written in CF (v5 or earlier)?  I've got some telnet controlled devices that I'd like to create a web-based interface for.  I'm thinking of perhaps emulating a telnet client, with text screen output and throw in a few buttons and controls for commonly executed commands.  Could be very handy for the sysadmin that can't remember obscure telnet commands. Thanks, Jim

Back in the 4.5 days I thought about using CFFILE to run telnet commands.  Is this still a possibility?

What about using cfexecute? Just an idea... not sure how you can pipe input and output inti it. > Has anyone here implemented or heard of a telnet client written in CF (v5 or > earlier)?  I've got some telnet controlled devices that I'd like to create a > web-based interface for.  I'm thinking of perhaps emulating a telnet client, > with text screen output and throw in a few buttons and controls for commonly > executed commands.  Could be very handy for the sysadmin that can't remember > obscure telnet commands. > > Thanks, > Jim

I think you're looking at the wrong technology imho... You can probably just find an ActiveX control or an Applet that'll do that...  Probably don't need to use ColdFusion...  Maybe some javascript with the applet or some vbscript with the activex control... A quick search on google gets you this one: http://javassh.org/ Here's more info on it: http://javassh.org/wiki-view?oid=408180808080808080808080808084neotis Has anyone here implemented or heard of a telnet client written in CF (v5 or earlier)?  I've got some telnet controlled devices that I'd like to create a web-based interface for.  I'm thinking of perhaps emulating a telnet client, with text screen output and throw in a few buttons and controls for commonly executed commands.  Could be very handy for the sysadmin that can't remember obscure telnet commands.

Now that I think about it, you're probably right.  For interactive sessions, anyway. The devices are remote power/reboot controllers for colocated servers.  I'm also writing a monitoring application and may incorporate the ability to automate a power cycling for servers and equipment that won't respond to any other type of reset.  In that case a non-interactive telnet session from my CF app would be necessary. I did a long search through my CF list archive and came up with a couple of tags, including cfx_telnet and cfx_tcpclient that may prove useful.

We have been using cfx_tcpclient for years now for just this sort of work. We use it to monitor routers, set off commands on remote machines, all sorts of things. It is an excellent tool. -- Yours, Kym

TSt10 is a script for telnet that is very easy to use. Just create the script commands with CF and use CFEXECUTE. You can download it from me http://www.kchost.net/tst10.zip Rick Eidson Has anyone here implemented or heard of a telnet client written in CF (v5 or earlier)?  I've got some telnet controlled devices that I'd like to create a web-based interface for.  I'm thinking of perhaps emulating a telnet client, with text screen output and throw in a few buttons and controls for commonly executed commands.  Could be very handy for the sysadmin that can't remember obscure telnet commands.
