Reading from Server w/Telnet

I've been working with some videos with my shadow cam trying to get it to work nicely and easily embed on this forum, because no one really likes links!. Unfortunately the html editor doesn't support iframes, thus I have just included my two links. My first Vlog post I suppose so don't judge ;)

I've used some telnet functionality when I was working in telecoms and thought this would be a useful video for those at this part of the reading and don't want to activate the telnet client.


  • Hey Jesse,

    I just commented on your other post, before you could get the videos working. I'm glad you got them, though. Your first video is useful and I'll reference it in my own work for sure, when I get to using telnet because I'm also running windows 10. What I found amusing was that you were using the NIST time servers for your example. I actually had to write a NIST timestamp - fetching program in Java a couple of years back using network connections and multithreading =). In my own blogs, I've written about how I feel like I messed it all up, in retrospect. I hadn't had the benefit of the knowledge this course has given me already (and will no doubt continue to give me). 

    Your second video was also quite useful. I've never used telnet extensively, but it is nice to know that even backspacing would ruin the beginning of what I've already typed due to "illegal characters," which I suppose makes sense. If you hadn't explicitly mentioned it, I would've been very very confused indeed by this error message. Despite programming for over four years, I still make typing mistakes all the time and I'm a regular backspacer =). Thanks for your committment!
