Telnet implementation for Node.js

Build Status

This module offers an implementation of the Telnet Protocol (RFC854), making it possible to write a telnet server that can interact with the various telnet features.

Implemented Options:

Name Event Specification
Binary transmission 'transmit binary' RFC856
Echo 'echo' RFC857
Suppress Go Ahead 'suppress go ahead' RFC858
Window Size 'window size' RFC1073

Installation

Install with npm:

$ npm install telnet

Examples

var telnet = require('telnet')

telnet.createServer(function (client) {

  // make unicode characters work properly
  client.do.transmit_binary()

  // make the client emit 'window size' events
  client.do.window_size()

  // listen for the window size events from the client
  client.on('window size', function (e) {
    if (e.command === 'sb') {
      console.log('telnet window resized to %d x %d', e.width, e.height)
    }
  })

  // listen for the actual data from the client
  client.on('data', function (b) {
    client.write(b)
  })

  client.write('connected to Telnet server!')

}).listen(23)

And then you can connect to your server using telnet(1)

$ telnet localhost
connected to Telnet server!
