How to terminate a telnet session from within your C/C++ program

Dear all,

Given the following challenge:
1. The application is an exe on a W2K server
2. User logs via telnet to the server
3. After checking the user account and password, a bat file runs
cmd.exe that starts the app.
4. The app starts looking for another instance of itself and if it was
found it will kill the instance (but not the telnet session that
originally started the instance as described in 1. to 3.)
5. Since the server allows only 2 telnet sessions, as a consequence,
the next log-in will be refused even there is only one or none
application.

I am looking for a piece of code that will be plugged into the app
and:
1. will not only look for aonther instance of itself but also for the
telnet session that has started the instance and kill this session.

I appreciate any help/hints you can give us,

Michael

Hint: you are asking your question in the wrong newsgroup. This one is for
the C++ language and not the telnet protocol or socket programming.

I'm trying to programmatically access information from a telnet session which is normally accessed with a telnet program capable of terminal emulation (currently set at VT320). The initial login text displays fine, of course, but when I get to the section which displays extended ASCII characters, Telnet from telnetlib displays the following garbled mess: ?[?40h?[?3l?[0;1m?>?[?1l?[?25l?[?3l?[0;0H?[2J?[?25l?(B??[0;7m?[23B ba6.0 version...

Hello all, I'm currently trying to pass commands to a telnet session and get the texte generated (stdin + stdout) by the session. The problem I get is that the Telnet.read_until() function seems to freeze after a couple of command. I did a simplify script that reproduce the problem each time (I'm using 2.3.4 on W2K):

I created a database to work out of at my office, right now we work out of a unix system. we connect using a telnet session software that came with our system we use, but was wanting to place this telnet session in a control or something inside my database form, so everything will be in one place.

Hi, I am trying to establish a telnet session to do screen scraping. This device returns some custom escape sequences, which I can ignore, and some standard escape seq's. At your suggestion, I used Ethereal and netcap.exe. On negotiation the server requests ECHO, and also BINARY. When submitting username, it echos back every charactor I type as I type it. The password gets an ack on every char typed, but not an echo. After that, echo...
