Hi i need some advice on starting a software package to allow remote access to a router for configuration via an IP network. I believe the use of socket programming is required and telnet as well. I would appreciate some help with the telnet section, something in the area of tutorials or sites that can help me understand how to implement it.

Thanks

Is this a J2ME question? Telnet is just a protocol over the socket connection. For most cases, you can easily implement it inside your own apps.

Hi, the software package runs from the mobile phone which connects to the router via the IP network for configuration. I am doing research on telnet and on implementing it in J2ME but i was wondering if you knew any good starting points or tutorials to help me understand and implement it.
Thanks.

To implement telnet over standard socket, all you need is to make sure that the data exchange between client server (handshake, request/response) conforms to the telnet specification. I'd start by looking an open source Java telnet client to see how it is done.
