Previous  Top  Next

·Service Status  

To start and stop the service, use the start and stop buttons respectively. The animated icon indicates the service status. By default, the service starts automatically on system boot up.

·Self Test  

Use this feature to initiate a self test. This will launch the default telnet client and connect to "localhost" at the configured telnet port.

·Listen On Port  

The standard telnet port is port 23. By default telnet clients contact servers at this port. However, you may configure the service to listen for telnet connections on a different port. Some system administrators use this feature as a security measure.

·Timeout Seconds  

This parameter determines how long the server waits before disconnecting an idle client connection. Use a value of zero if you wish idle connections to persist indefinitely.

·Enable Logging  

If this option is enabled, BFTelnet will record relevant information in the Windows NT application event log. This includes user logons, as well as service start and stop.

·Enable Startup Script  

If this option is enabled, BFTelnet will search the user's "home" directory for a script named "BFTELNET.BAT" and execute the same whenever the user logs in. The user's home directory is deemed to be the user's default login directory, usually located under "C:\Winnt\Profiles\<user name>\".
