When I create a manhole as in the howto documentation I
cannot access it with a regular Windows XP telnet client. It
works perfectly with PuTTY however.

Might be windows telnet sending a line delimiter other 
than CRLF? shrug.

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by Rudy

After examination with a sniffer I can say that there are
two differences between PuTTy and Windows Telnet:
1. When asked for the username and password, PuTTy sends the
whole text at once, MSTelnet does it character per character.
2. In PuTTY both username and paddword are followed by a
CRLF, in MSTelnet the username is followed by a CRLF, the
password by a CR only (even after SET CRLF). Just as Radix

It's a windows issue... throw it on the pile.

It's manhole.  I don't know what to do with it. :-)

Actually it's twisted.protocols.telnet.

Maybe add a remark in the documentation: Windows XP Telent sucks, use 
other client.

I'm using PuTTy now and am very happy with it.
