telnet client missing in busybox

Postby Indigo » Sat Nov 03, 2018 4:36 pm

just installed a more recent version of ipysail gargoyle builds (one of the september builds 1.11) and noticed that telnet client is no longer included in busybox?

would it be possible to reinclude telnet client capability, i need this to fetch some data from a LTE modem.

I think you can install “simpletelnet” from the Openwrt repo, or just use Netcat (nc) to simulate Telnet
WRT32X on 1.11.X
Various ar71xx/mvebu boards in a constant state of flux
www.lantisproject.com for custom builds and other projects

Sorry, looks like it was proposed but not accepted.
I’d suggest using netcat

WRT32X on 1.11.X
