    I would really like for a developer to create an application for the Touchpad that does Telnet.

    I'm a network tech at my college and have been working on a large wireless re-haul. Would love to be able to telnet into switches and change configurations with the touchpad that i bring with me everywhere.

    would be a nice application for a dev to enter this contest with.

    You can do that today with one of the following combinations from WebOS Internals:

    A)

    Xecutah + Optware Command Line Installer + Optware telnet

    B)

    Xecutah + Ubuntu chroot + Ubuntu telnet


    It's not packaged in a convenient manner, but it works.

    I seems you do not have a valid data connection, or a bad DNS server. You may also be behind a wifi hotspot which is not allowing data through.

    In any case, the problem is your network connection, not Preware.

    i'm thinking it didnt uninstall properly when i did it. when i look in device management in webos Quick Install, it still shows preware as an application that is installed, bit when i try to uninstall it, it just says "Error" and disappears off the list.

    i have xecutah and the command line installed but I cant find the optware telnet.

    where is that and once its installed how exactly do I set it up?

    I am going to need a bluetooth keyboard to use it?

    I got as far as trying to run ipkg-opt to poke around and try to find telnet, but no matter what arguments I gave it I never got any output other than the single line "Successfully terminated". Then I ran out of time.
