text scroller / text marquee with TELNET input

hi

i'm looking for a applet that has got the possibility to read telnet input

we are willing to use this marquee option to monitor certain servers..

we did create some monitor apps in perl and use netcat to output this information on a specific port (standard ascii output)

we are trying to find a applet that can read data from this port (other system via tcp/ip) and output it in a scrolling text..

thanks

but i'm not searching a TELNET application :)

i'm searching a TEXT SCROLLER that has the ability to read a input stream from a tcp/ip connection (telnet)

It's very similar, because what the telnet applets do is to connect to a tcp/ip connection and display whatever it receive from that socket. Except that there's no userinput in this case.
You must customize the code a little .. it's not difficult I think. And it's ok too if you don't want to change, just that your applet will look strange.
I don't know if there is an exact program for your requirements. I'll look for it and let you know. Anyway, this is a programming forum, we should talk about programming, shouldn't we?

that's right :)

it would be easier to find something :)

it has been a LONG time since i programmed in java

i know that there is a option to open remote URL's .. as files; but that isn't suitable at the other hand ..

i'll take a look at those tcp/ip applets anyhow :)

yeah, try them. You can use them as is and see if they're what you need. Modification only to remove the redundant GUI stuffs.
