Ajax Telnet Application

P: n/a
Hi,

I am looking for a suitable Ajax Telnet Application.
The main reason for this is I have a training company client that needs
to allow access to their training systems via completely vanilla
browsers, and does not want the trainees to have to install anything,
or accept anything, on their machines.

My requirements are that it:
1) has a command filter
2) supports authentication
3) supports cut&paste

Anyone have any ideas?

Many many thanks for your time!
Luvic

where I should post it.

"Ajax" (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, an often misused term) is using
HTTP, not telnet.

So what you can only want is a Web (HTTP) interface to a telnet client
running on the server. However, to have a real-time interface, you would
have to either control telnet(1) while it is running, or rewrite telnet(1)
from scratch in any server-side programming language; the former probably
can be done with a Tcl/Expect script triggered by the server-side
application that is to evaluate the user input, and to include telnet's
response into a HTTP response body.

That said, you should definitely consider using either SSH or Secure Telnet
instead.

Probably comp.infosystems.www.authoring.misc would be appropriate. For
questions specific to the techniques I mentioned, post to the corresponding
newsgroups.
