Hi all,
Kindly help me with ideas to connect to a unix aix server through winsock.My requirement is to simulate a telnet session between my pc and the  server.I am not able to use winsock.getdata 'cause the connection state is always 6(connecting !).
In the winsock.data_arrival i get 6 bytes as the total bytes received.I cant proceed any further.Any help is highly appreciated.Also I am new to socket programming.

Your best bet would be to purchase a telnet control.
I've always been a big fan of Dart Controls:

They make a great product.

If you still insist on doing this project via winsock. You should probably read up on the Telnet RFC which is 854.

Good Luck.

There is an example telnet client here that uses winsock. Maybe it can help:
