Is there a way to call to telnet and have it connect to site from inside of a form
I need to pass information to telnet from my application so that the user can see what is happening
I tried using the shell and shellexecute examples supplied and I can get telnet to open in a window by itself but I was wondering if it can be done inside of my application

Well I found out that I can use socketwrench to do what I wanted to do inside of my program...
The issue is that the text the is returned by the server is way to big for the textbox I am using .
is there a way to cut the length of the received text and force it to a second line within the textbox?
I have set the textbox to multiple lines and have both scrollbars active...all this does is allow me to scroll to see all of the returning text.
I guess what I am asking is there a way to format the text that is recieved

change it so that only the vertical scrollbar is present.

do you happen to know if there is a way to format the text IE: show the colors or formatting inside the window
BTW thanks removing the one scrollbar fixed the other problem

well, you could use the RichTextBox control, and use the Sel properties.
Like: <pre>RichTextBox1.SelText = "This is green text!"
RichTextBox1.SelStart = 9
RichTextBox1.SelLength = 5
RichTextBox1.SelColor = vbGreen</pre>
would make the textbox say:
This is <font color=green>green</font color=green> text!
