I want to know if it is possible for a VB application to run through telnet. It doesn't seem to work for me but am I doing something wrong.

Regards,

Under NT, you can run a VB app using the "Start" command. Of course, unless your program explicitly writes to the console you won't see any output. And when you log off the telnet session your program will be killed. You can run a program which will survive your logoff from telnet using "at" (or "soon" from the resource kit).

Win95 doesn't have the same extended cmd.exe so I don't think there is a way... but I am assuming your question refers to NT, I don't recall seeing a telnet daemon that runs on 95.

Hope this helps!
