Hi all, I'm taking an intro to routing and switching class at kaplan college as part of an associates degree in computer networking. We're diving into router and switch configuration and the various ways to log into said devices. I'm reading about telnet as one of those options and a light bulb goes off in my head. Can mushclient be used for this purpose??

I'm not familiar with the network stack at a very low level, but Telnet is a very low-overhead protocol, and MUDs don't really add much to it. Perhaps the only "odd" thing MUSHclient might send is suboption requests (i.e. IAC DO NAWS), but that's perfectly within the realm of Telnet, and a correct Telnet implementation should be able to handle those readily (probably with a WONT response). I'm pretty sure it's possible to telnet into a remote computer using MUSHclient, too.

Unless you're planing on creating miniwindows to display remote information, I'd just use PuTTY or something similar. But nothing springs to mind that would prevent MUSHclient from being used.

Well ideally I want to be able to create macros and divert output to other windows from the device I'm telneting into. Possibly even something that keeps track of the ip address and interfaces and info about each interface on the device. Thanks for the response twisol!

IOS kind of expects vt100 emulation, and cursor placement and inline editting. While MC is great, it's not really the best tool for this job. As for triggers and switch maintenance, that's what SNMP is for.

While Telnet is the original configuration protocol for switches, these days you're pretty much going to use SSH for the security. Leaving Telnet open for administration is asking to get hacked and a man-in-the-middle attack.

I thought I remember seeing that MUSHclient can connect using SSH.
