I'm trying write a program that you can telnet to.
I've made it *connect* to a host and *receive* data.
But when i try to connect to it telnet just says couldn't connect to host.
im using tcp, OnConnectRequest, tcp1.accept(requestID);

Sounds like you've setup a client rather than a server..

What libraries/components are you using for this purpose?
I use IPworks, which does a great job telnetting in to for me..

Everything you need is on F. Piette site. The correct components (what means, no ActiveX, dll's needed...) freeware (i.e. cardware, the cost is one postcard...!) and great help mailing-list.

For your information : example of a telnet program on his site too. Plus, I believe other examples available too.


(I don't know how many times i've given this link, but it's worth to give it).
