Can Rev Telnet?

After a little digging, there might be a possibility.

The problem is the entering of a special "interactive"
shell program that waits for information to be typed in.

I tried to telnet into my router and couldn't get the info
back even though I queued all the commands in.

If I paste the text into the shell, it works but you can't
seem to send it to the shell command.

But there's two modes to telnet... See the telnet.chm file
in your winnt folder: client side.

So the key may be to be able to send a control-] (ascii 27)
to the shell. I tried this too and no go.

My guess is that you have to write your own telnet client...

Here's the RFC...
