Based on the title, you can surmise I don't know a lot about communications protocols. I've got the SSH component working well on the application I wrote. However, I've been asked to add a telnet login option.

I think would call for a different component, but if I there's a way I can use the SSH component for this, I'd really be happy.

Thanks for feedback. Norm

There are examples where you can send and interact with a ssh server.

SSH Exec (Execute Command Line)

The "telnet" protocol is and older protocol that is typically disabled on any given operating system (Windows, Linux, etc.) Chilkat doesn't have anything explicitly for telnet. If you're just looking for remote shell / command capability, you would want to use SSH instead of telnet.

My problem is that I am writing components to support a/v equipment which, even the with current models, the manufacturers still use insist on using telnet as the communications protocol (in addition to RS232). I've written a simple telnet interface for those devices, so I'll stick with that. My goal was to reduce the size my component by creating a shared set of telnet and SSH. Thanks for the feedback.
