Welcome to telnetd2!
telnetd is an Open Source effort to implement a Java telnet daemon that is compact and generic and thus easily embeddable into other applications.
Main Features are:
- Telnet protocol implementation (following specifications, support for NVT, ECHO, TTYPE, NAWS, LINEMODE,NEWENV)
- Terminal I/O with support for various terminal types
- Simple UI toolkit as OO layer on top of the basic terminal I/O (work progress)
- Connection management (host based access and handling of idle connections)
Main focus is a design that is flexible and powerful, yet at the same time stable and with a small runtime footprint. Threads required are two system threads per listener, as well as one per connection.
Developers that want to integrate reasonable telnet access into their application.
