Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91023
Telnet option -8 and -L do nothing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
Supposedly, telnet options -8 and -L should change the 8-bit/7-bit mode and
force sending TELNET BINARY option. They do neither.
Also, -7 option is not documented in the man page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# telnet -8
telnet> set options on
telnet> open REMOTEHOST
==> TELNET BINARY option is never sent; the same with -L. Actually, as binary is
the default mode, this isn't changed either.
