Q. When I try and launch the telnet Helper App in InterMapper RemoteAccess running on a Windows XP Pro 64-bit platform, an error is displayed that telnet is not a recognized command.

A. The problem is that the telnet executable is only available in the 64-bit command processor, and there's no way to launch that from a 32-bit program, as the system changes pathnames behind the scenes.

You can try editing the Helper App to use the following path:


The \Windows\Sysnative\ path lets the OS pick the correct application to run.

You could also use the free plink utility instead to launch a telnet client. Save the plink.exe file to C:\ and edit the telnet helper app using the parameters below:

Path(${PATH}): c:\plink.exe
Arguments(${ARGS}): -telnet
