[REBOL] Network Port Reading Problem

From: rsnell::webtrends::com at: 7-Sep-2000 15:18

I need to implement a telnet client in Rebol for a fixed task (that is, I don't want a terminal type thing - all client commands are fixed and will be run with no user interaction). Anyway, so I open up a telnet connection to the box of interest:
>> c: open tcp:// >>
Cool. Now in this particular case, the telnet server returns an IAC packet asking me to DO (telnet parlance) some option stuff. My question is - how do I get the data that the server has sent me? I try:
>> print copy c
..... finally get network timeout or
>> print first c
..... finally get network timeout In my sniffer I see that there IS definitely data sent to me over the open telnet socket and the telnet server is waiting for me to get it and respond. If I sniff the Win32 built-in telnet client I see that the client do the right thing and respond to this packet. What am I not doing correct here to get this data? TIA, Rodney
