TelNet Help

Last Modified: 2020-02-13
I am a race timer and I use a proprietary timing software.  I am migrating to a new timing system and in order to get it to work with my software I have to stream the data from the timing box to a directory on my PC using a TelNet utility.  I have one that works perfectly...except that it seems to time out or simply stop communicating at certain points for one reason or another.  I need to resolve this in order to complete my migration.  

I found a TelNet program and modified it using vb6 to interface nicely with my system.  I have the source code.  I am looking for help on finding a setting or something that is causing the failure.  Let me know what I need to provide.  If this is more than I should be asking for I am willing to pay a reasonable fee for help with this.

Thank you very much!
