ol.sc had contacted me, telling me that he intends to make a new release of Telnet65, and if I'd like
to port it to Atari for this release.

I accepted and the port is finished now.

Telnet65 is a VT100 Telnet client. I guess it can best be described as remake of Kipperterm. Like Kipperterm it
is based on IP65 combined with VT100 code of Cater (http://www.opppf.de/Cater/).

Telnet65 is based on the latest IP65 code and the latest Cater code. Additionally support for line drawing as seen
i.e. in Midnight Commander was added.

Telnet65 for Atari writes directly into the screen memory for speed reasons. It uses the default 40x24 text screen.

Therefore no custom E: handlers (XEP80, VBXE) are supported currently.

Full source code can be found at https://github.com/oliverschmidt/ip65, and precompiled binaries at
https://github.com/o...t/ip65/releases.

 

I've attached a bootable ATR file containing TELNET65.COM. I couldn't attach TELNET.COM ("cannot attach this type of file" stupidity), so it's inside the ZIP.

Attached Files

Not right now. I maybe record one during the next days.

 

But you can test it with Altirra. It emulates a DragonCart. But please note, that the keyboard type-in latency after being connected only happens in Altirra, not on real hardware.

Just fired this up and it is awesome!  I immediately connected to my MacPro and could surf the web with Links and played Zork with Frotz.  Great speed and so easy to use.  Thanks for this!

Can this telnet be used to download xex or dcm images? I would like to, for example, ftp to pigwa.net and then download from there. It is not practical at all, but I like the concept of a full Atari 8-bit solution. I tried the wget and the browser and I could not make it happen. The menu item "save URL as" makes me think is possible, to download a file to diskette in the disk drive.

Hi,

 

I tried the wget and the browser [...]

 

Are you refering to the Contiki web browser and the Contiki wget?

 

The menu item "save URL as" [...]

 

Neither the Contiki web browser nor the Contiki wget have any menu.

 

The web browser shows the text "Would you like to download instead?" - see

https://github.com/c...wser/www.c#L715

 

The wget shows a prompt asking "Save as:" - see

https://github.com/c...get/wget.c#L183

 

But maybe you are rather refering to some web browser / wget running on some box you are connected to via Telnet. Then it's obvious that you can only download files to the file system on the box you are connected to via Telnet. 

 

Even if you run the Contiki wget on your Atari you will only be able to download to a file in your Atari file system, but not to "raw blocks" on your disk. Maybe I'll provide a new wget that will be able to do the latter.

 

Regards,

Oliver

Hi Oliver,
Thanks for the reply.
Reading my latest post I understand it wasn't clear.
The contiki browser and contiki wget fail to download xex or dcm images from pigwa and other sites.
On the other hand, this new telnet has a "save URL as", in menu according to the images uploaded. So I assumed it has some kind of "wget" integrated.
I have accomplish a "full Atari solution" for downloading software using a terminal server, rverter interface and terminal program plus x,y or zmodem protocol in both the atari side and the Linux side (sx/rx or sz/rz )
I would love to see some way to download software using the dragoncart and the new telnet. I don't think is possible but maybe I'm wrong.
Wrt the capability to write directly to sectors, it would be great, but I was not thinking about that when I wrote my last post.
Thanks again, these software and the dragoncart are amazing, I never through back then, it would be possible to connect the Atari directly to internet.
Regards,
Mauricio

No, that's not a menu entry of Telnet65, but from a program started on the host the Telnet was connected.

 

Telnet65 doesn't have the ability to download files. The telnet protocol doesn't support that.

 

Oliver thinks about creating a wget-like program which could be used to download files (and upload). And files as files and disk images directly to floppy.

 

regards,

chris
