DataReel is a free, cross-platform database and communications toolkit. It can be used to rapidly develop and deploy multi-threaded database and communications applications. The DataReel toolkit is composed of a modular C++ library designed to build cross-platform infrastructures for end-user applications, embedded systems, and reusable libraries. DataReel's unique modular design simplifies adaptation, allowing you to determine the level of complexity. DataReel makes Internet connectivity and database programming easy.
The Poor Woman's Telnet Server was quickly hacked together to provide a simple cross-platform telnet server. For non-Windows or non-Unix operating systems, you must adapt the call for the system shell. It is not advisable to run such an program on a production server, but for software development and testing purposes this program can satisfy some needs. It doesn't require a password and starts a system shell as the user who started the server.
The sniffy project can trace/log the data of any pseudo terminal in the system. Due to the way the terminal works, such a terminal trace provides complete information of what happened on the terminal screen, and sniffy is able to display/replay this information. It consists of a kernel module able to connect/hook on the pseudo terminal, a program to display the contents of any pseudo terminal on the fly, a daemon process tracing the pseudo terminal content into the file, and a replay program to replay any stored pseudo terminal session.
Libtermui is a terminal driver library. It is fully standalone and lightweight. It does not rely on termcap or curses libraries. It can drive terminals on a TTY or through a telnet connection directly on a TCP socket. It is fully re-entrant, and can be used to drive multiple terminals from different threads. It includes a getline feature (similar to the one in readline) and some console user interface facilities.
ZOC is a popular terminal emulator and telnet client that supports telnet, modem, SSH 1 and 2, ISDN, serial, TAPI, Rlogin and other means of communication. Its terminal emulator supports Xterm emulation with full colors, meta-keys, mouse support, and local printing; VT102, VT220, and several types of ANSI; and Wyse, TVI, TN3270, and Sun's CDE. Unique features include full keyboard remapping, REXX scripting, and support for connecting to named pipes.
PAC provides a GUI to configure SSH and Telnet connections, including usernames, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, and macros. It is similar in function to SecureCRT or Putty. It is intended for people who connect to many servers through SSH. It can automate logins and command executions.
KildClient is a MUD client written with the GTK+ windowing toolkit. It supports many common features of other clients, such as triggers, gags, aliases, macros, timers, and much more. But its main feature is the built-in Perl interpreter. At any moment, the user can execute Perl statements and functions to do things much more powerful than simply sending text the the MUD. Perl statements can also be run, for example, as the action of a trigger, allowing you to do complex things.
