Hey folks,
My first post here, so be gentle

I seem to have run into a quite a problem with the MS telnet server. I'm writing an application that will connect to a remote machine and execute a few scripts there.
I'm using jakarta net for the connection. It all seems to work fine, but when I do connect to the machine, I'm getting a whole load of MS-specific mumbo jumbo that I can't seem to avoid. Here's how it looks from my side:

$ java TelnetConnect
Microsoft (R) Windows (TM) Version 5.00 (Build 2195)
Welcome to Microsoft Telnet Service
Telnet Server Build 5.00.99201.1

---------------------------------------------------------
Now, when I connect to a unix machine, it all seems to work perfectly.

Is there some parser package for this or a connection option? I looked everywhere and can't seem to find a solution.

Thanks!

Jekin, are you running your program in a DOS window? If yes, it does not understand VT100 (or other terminal's) control characters. The XTerm window does terminal emulation correctly.

Hey Alex,

I tried running this from within MKS Toolkit (Korn shell), Cygwin, and cmd - all with the same result

terminal emulation is supposed to be option as part of the option negotiation process. Unfortunately the telnet server that comes with Windows seems to be a poor implementation as it ignores the telnet client when the telnet client refuses terminal emulation. In this case the Windows server sends the emulated data anyway. Unfortunately the only option is to use a different server that properly follows the option negotiation standard or parse the emulated data.

Thanks for the clarification Van Glass! I guess I'll have to find a new server.
