I know this question has been asked, and I tried to ask Brent Thorn, but didn't get a response. I am sure he is tired of answering the same question.

I am trying to write a telnet client, that send specific scripts and when asked questions. I have the basic format down, the buttons working and filling in the variable, but I can't get the Telnet client figured out. I was going to try the Telnet WIP at the bottom of this forum, bu the code doesn't compile and I havent figured out where the sub routine is missing.

I don't need a type ahead box, just a plain, telnet to a UNIX box, send text and get a reply, and be able to send my scripts.

Can anyone lend me a hand. I have searched the Internet for examples and I see Brent's examples, the most, but I can't get just the client to compile and HI/LO has alot of stuff in it that I haven't figured out yet.

I am new at code writing, am I barking up the wrong tree and should just break down and buy C++, I thought if I could learn to do it in basic I could convert it later after I am better at this.

Dakota,

I'm so sorry that I misses your question earlier.

I started writing a Telnet client in LB, based on one I wrote in VB, but got distracted and lost interest in it. It's not very easy to make a standards-compliant client.

I'm not trying to discourage you, but have you looked for a scriptable Telnet client? I know they exist, usually for the purpose of playing Telnet-based multiplayer games (MUDs, MOOs, etc.). If not scriptable, there are clients with command aliases and triggers (i.e. sending a command automatically when a certain text string is encountered).

I will try to help you in whatever direction you want to go.
