Thank you for the patch, is is working great now. I had in between tried
other telnet proxies such as tn-gw. That did not work because required
emulation was tn5250 ( not char based).
However I notice the following: (not related to the patch)
If I run delegate as
./delegated -vv -f +=telnet
Contents of file telnet:
delegate starts up without any error, but clients are unable to connect.
But if I give the port number on command line as:
./delegated -vv -f -P9999 +=telnet
It works alright
Whats wrong here?
