using telnet to access CMS server
k5osx
Hi,

If you are using plain old telnet (eg, not the telnet support in paclink or airmail) to connect to server.winlink.org, port 8772, to read winlink2000 mail, you need to put a '.' in front of your callsign, to force the telnet connection to use 8bit transparency mode. Apparently this is some old convention that dates back to the early 70s.

For example:

Download source  Code

bash-3.2$ telnet server.winlink.org 8772
Trying 142.177.196.170...
Will map carriage return on output.
Connected to server.winlink.org.
Escape character is '^]'.

Callsign :
.k5osx
Password :
CMSTELNET
[WL2K-1.6.1.6-B2FIHM$]
Halifax CMS >



This is now documented in the winlink FAQ, but unless you constantly peruse that for new info, you might miss it.

fyi,
robert
