      I have gotten this to work with a Unix telnet client called PuTTY.
      This client also works well with Windows as well.

      For some reason, I changed nothing with PuTTY and got the
      user/password correctly when I telneted into it.

      If any has been able to do this with the telnet command in a terminal
      with Linux/Mac OS X, I would be interested in any responses.

      I have a feature request for the Remote Telnet Server and for BPQ32,
      if it has not been done. What I would like to do is to connect to the
      laptop that is running AGWPE/BPQ and get a trace of its radio ports.
      It is the same idea as the Telnet Remote Server but add the ability t
      monitor the radio ports. As far as I am aware, none of the AGW
      programs will do this, they require the use of the Windows machine. I
      don't want to do this but be able to do everything from my Mac.

      I can already do this with a program called TelMgr but it doesn't
      display what digipeater the packets are coming from. Other then that,
      it does a good job of displaying everything else.
