Anyone aware of a telnet library written in c or c++ (Linux) that I can use to login with password to telnet server?

I got this option however it requires Boost, which I don't want to use.

I want to login to the following server and send command: (hosted by: Pittsburg State University, Kansas, USA) - login: library

  • Any reason you don't want to use BOOST? Also do you care about pricing? how about licensing? Commented Jun 18, 2014 at 13:59
  • There probably isn't one because telnet is so simple that nobody has bothered. You just connect a port on a socket and send probably the simplest header format you've ever seen. Busy box has a basic c implementation to start from though. Commented Dec 29, 2014 at 20:51
