I have a problem concerning the telnet client on Solaris 2.6. I
implemented a server which provides a character
oriented user interface via a special port. After accepting a connection
initiated by the telnet client the server force the
user to type in a password.
The telnet client works in line mode with local echo on, which is fine
except for the password entry.
I already tried to send (from the server to the telnet client) the
telnet command sequence
IAC ECHO OFF (and after pwd input again ON)
but it seems that it gets ignored. I wonder because exactly this
implementation works when using
from WinNT via Hummingbird Exceed TELNET.
Has someone a solution?
