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://127.0.0.1:25
urls as well as
[[telnet://127.0.0.1][telnet to local host]] type links.

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

You might as well add support for
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.
