How to program telnet?

Hello,

I have an application (record set) and I need to incorporate a telnet program into it.  What it needs to do is dial either a local or long distance number to a BBS line.  It needs to upload/download files into this BBS.  It must support ANSI or ANSI_BBS.  Is there a way to program this?  If so, how (is it called TAPI)?  Or are there freeware programs out there that I can incorporate into my application?

thanks, i would appreciate any help

What you need is Windows socket programming.

A console telnet application with source code

Hello chensu,

Thanks for replying.  Sorry, it has taken me this long for a comment.  I visited that site but the owner of the site said the source code is not completely done.  I took a look at it and I don't see any application of TAPI.  Is this right?  Can you briefly tell me how to go about in starting the telnet program?

thanks

It has nothing do to with TAPI. Telnet programs involve Windows Socket programming and Telnet protocol. You may go to the following Web sites to get more information.

Hello Chensu,

Thanks for all the links.  I checked them out but there were some that listed books that can help.  The problem is that all the books are on connecting with the internet.  Would you happen to know any books that would help me for my situation?

thanks Chensu

Actually, the program you are writing is not a Telnet program but a BBS program. Therefore, it is not related to the Internet, Winsock and the Telnet protocol. I have never done a BBS program. I think Windows communications API can be used and Telephony API probably. I am sorry that I cannot give you any useful help.
