ability to alter telnet url

Post by ostapus » Tue Mar 31, 2020 2:28 pm

Hello,

requesting the followin feature - ability to alter/customize "click to node" url for node access.. Currently (ie for telnet) the url has followin form: telnet://1.2.3.4:5678. The probles is, under the linux - when i click and open terminal to the node, terminal window has no proper title (like "R1"... i am using konsole as terminal). I can assign script as uri handler, howere it is not help as there is no way to pass router's name to url.
as POC i modified community version of eve-ng to construct uri as telnet://1.2.3.4:5678@ROUTER_NAME, however, i can't modify prof. version because of encrypted files.

thanks

Ostap

The root cause is the telnet client Used...

EVE send back Console name but some client are just unable to handle such information !

Hello,

thanks for the answer. Do you mind to point me how exactly EVE sents info back ? i couldn't find anything in telnet specification and looking at the connection dump (with tcpdump) i don't see remote device name either.
Either way, another use case is when you have to use jump/bastion host and do ssh tunnel to telnet because of firewalls - ie: ssh eve-ng-host telnet localhost 60685, you have to pass remote device name to change window/tab title.

thanks

It is a sequence handled by xterm type terminals
