telnet client missing in busybox

Post by Indigo »

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

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