I have a server and client running on 2 separate machines. I want to invoke a telnet window from the client using WebStart. I was able to do that, but the catch is telnet should happen from the server machine, not from the client. Any suggestion as to how to do it?
So you want the Telnet window to open on the server? Is that what you mean?
And remember that JNLP is specifically designed so that you can run the application without being connected to the server it was downloaded from. So are you sure you chose the right technology to implement this (rather peculiar) requirement?
Probably I have just misunderstood what you really want to do. Could you clarify a bit more?
