Hi! anyone have any luck with a "TELNET" like connection with MS ACCESS? I send simple text commands to a connected unit via TELNET. By TELNET I mean using a communications application that converses with a connected device via IP address. Something like sending "readbuffer01" and a response like "0,00.4,2" is returned by the conneted device. I do this over a TELNET application like Tera Term set up for IP of the connected device xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format for IP and TCP/IP port 3602 emulating a VT100 terminal. Any way that ACCESS can send commands and listen for a response like these terminal programs. I am basically trying to automate data collection over the tcp/ip connection and store in a form/table.
