Telnet Client

  • As far as I know RRF and DUET WIFI/Ethernet currently does not support telnet in client mode, only server mode. I have a device which I want to control from DUET using telnet, in order for it to work DUET has to be the client.

    I wanted to ask if there are any obstacles other than time required for adding telnet client support? Are there any hardware or software reasons for only server mode being supported at the moment?

  • I would guess the reason there is no such thing is that there is no standardized peripheral that needs to be controlled by a telnet client, and if used on WiFi it would be subject to uncertainty. I would elaborate a little on the use case and see if you get any alternative solutions, maintaining a custom firmware mod across upgrades could be tedious.
