I have a VB application running as a service in NT 4 and I want to implement some telnet HOST functionality so I can control some of the application functions using a standard telnet client. Someone knows about any script or freeware ocx to do this? I'm already using winsock components on this application.

If you use the Microsoft Winsock Control, you can develop your own host software quite easily. Check out the help page in the MSDN library on the Winsock control (About a page of info) and you can pick up all of the neccessary commands for TCP connection. (Make sure you dont try to use UDP protocol with telnet)

The application is already a specific TCP host. I'm just looking for some ready to use routine or OCX just to make things easy and faster. I'm quite busy right now so I was looking for something easy to implement.

Hi,

At the following site they have a couple of examples of Telnet servers in VB

Try:
http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb

search for 'razon'
search for 'priest'

NOTE: Each author has a number of submisions, so look for the Telnet sample.

Hope this helps
