Re: Windows Telnet...

Good day all...
Quick question. Can I use Window's telent.exe as a command in a door to connect to an outside IP and have the I/O appear in the callers client?
Possibly. I'm not sure I would trust users with access to Microsoft's telnet.exe. For one thing, it would allow them to 'close' the
connection you're bridging them with and open another connection, anywhere, potentially using your system as an unsuspecting attack
Reason behind this, the IP i am trying to access requires a newer version
of telnet than what is supplied with Synchronet's telgate.
What led you to that conclusion? I'm not aware of any "newer version of telnet" since RFC854, from 1983. There are additional
options, suboptions, etc. introduced in subsequent RFCs, but these
aren't "newer versions of telnet"
At a command
prompt using Windows telnet I can access the site with no problems.
That's one data point. If you want to root-cause and resolve the issue with telgate, I could help with that.
Connecting to the system with a client the system opens a DOS window, the information is displayed within that window yet nothing to the incoming client. Do I need to configure the Intercept I/O?
You would need enable I/O interception, yes. But like I said, I think that's a bad idea (for security reasons).

I don't know if this will work for you... TelnetDoor is out there... google it... if you cannot find it IO'll send it over to you if you
cannot find it.
Works like a door...

I can also confirm it works here. I got my forecast for the next
week anyways, if that's what you're looking for.
Question is, were you successful by using the Control Panel's login or
did you use a remote program? It works for me also when I login
I telnetted to my system using Syncterm, from another machine, using my BBS address and not my local LAN IP. Also, I use Linux here, so I don't have a "Control Panel". :)
Once you do get passed the opening screen, most is self
So you hit enter when it says to and nothing happens? Try typing in
your 3 character city code and hitting enter (after hitting enter to
pass that screen). Maybe it's just not displaying properly?

Maybe you can try it on your end.
Yeah, I'll give it a look-see and let you know.
Thank you sir!!
I tried it myself by using the sysop command ";EXEC ?telgate rainmaker.wunderground.com" and it worked fine. You have to hit enter/return when it prompt you to and then you can enter a city
code and use the menu.
i just tried it on max's system exactly like you show above... no
amount of mashing on any of the enter keys worked to get past that
"press enter to continue" prompt...
Perhaps you're running an older version of Synchronet?
possibly... max hasn't updated that synchronet install in several months... we're not even sure if the past updates from CVS have gone properly because of some sort of framebuffer error when running the
on the nix system that max is using and there's no GUI either...

I did a dns on your bbs to see if I had your IP blocked and I don't... if you were using that IP to try and connect. I have no record of it here. Were you using a different address?
Nope. Trying to connect from home. My BBS is hosted somewhere else.

I Found what I was looking for, but am still a bit confused. http://www.synchro.net/docs/external_programs.html#InternalGateways
So, from what the docs are telling me, it should be passed on the
command line, but I'm unsure of formatting. Would it look like this?
*telgate rainmaker.wunderground.com TG_ECHO
that's what we tried, too... but the telgate.js script ignores
everything after the remote host... that's why we copied the telgate.js file and edited the new one to manually add those options...
that is the only real set of changes we made other than commenting out
the pause line as noted in my previous post...
