What is the best way to peel an orange? Numerous ways come to my mind. First is just to do what your trying to do, the manual way with telnet. Another way is to have the server either stop taking requests either upon special command either quiting or waiting for the "on" command. And yet another way would be to have the server not take requests between a certain time periods. Your decision just depends really on what you want it to do in the grand scheme of things. I will be kind and give an example to play with. rebol [ Title: "Slightly Upgraded SID Server" ] listen-port: open/lines tcp://:8080 max-sid: "5000" send-http: func [data mime] [ insert data rejoin ["HTTP/1.0 200 OK^/Content-type: " mime "^/^/"] insert http-port data ] command-list: [ "/kill" [ mime: "text/html" send-http "<H1>SERVER KILLED</H1>" mime close http-port quit ] "/reset" [ mime: "text/html" send-http "<H1>SERVER RESET</H1>" mime max-sid: "5000" ] "/" [ max-sid: form (load max-sid) + 5000 mime: "text/plain" send-http copy max-sid mime ] ] forever [ http-port: first wait listen-port probe request: first http-port command: second probe parse/all request " " do select command-list command close http-port ]

Hmmm... I have never run into this. Probably your telnet server. Are you logged in as root? Try another telnetd maybe. Good question for a Linux newsgroup. Anyways, have fun, --Ryan Ryan Cole Programmer Analyst 707-468-5400
