I have modified my TWiki.pm to support telnet URL's. The changes were pretty minor, I just added |telnet after all of the https patterns in TWiki.pm. A context diff is appended to this topic.

I added this because we are using TWiki to document port configurations on a terminal server. With the telnet URL we have a switchboard to go to to access the computer consoles attached to the terminal server.

It wors with bare telnet:// urls as well as [[telnet://][telnet to local host]] type links.

  • telnet.diff: diff -c for twiki.pm.orig and twiki.pm with telnet

Implemented and in TWikiAlphaRelease. Introduced variable for pattern, $linkProtocolPattern = "(http|ftp|gopher|news|file|https|telnet)";

You might as well add support for ssh at the same time.

Which browsers support ssh:// type URLs? I just tried this in IE 5.5 and it doesn't work - I suspect other browsers don't support it either.

OK, time to eat crow. I should have checked before posting. But people really should use ssh instead of telnet whenever they can.
