First released in early 2004, this is an update for LB 4 and Windows 2000 and later (though it should run fine on earlier Windows). The demo implements a simple server using plain ASCII over a TCP socket using raw Winsock DLL calls and WMLiberty fpr event trapping. The application serves up a number guessing game.

The "Telnet" in the title is not entirely correct since the server does not actually implement any of the Telnet protocol. I gave it that name to emphasize that the Telnet client that comes with all versions of Windows since 95 can connect to the server without causing any problems. If you were to use a different Telnet client, that may not be the case.

After starting the server, you can connect locally by running from a command line
Code:
telnet localhost

If you are behind a router, the address to connect displayed in the console is your LAN address. I will not answer questions about putting a server out on the Internet here.

Works for me, WinXP Pro SP2, LB 4.03, WMLiberty 1.1. This is a pretty good demo of what can be done with LB and WMLiberty.
