    I need a script to activate telnet daemon. I want to put the script in SES/AOSS Button -> Custom Script and when I press the SES button to activate telnet; when I press the SES button again to dezactivate the telnet daemon.

    Something like this in the "Custom Script" box:

    [ $1 -ge 5 ] && /usr/sbin/telnetd -p 23 -l /bin/sh
    [ $1 -ge 10 ] && /usr/bin/killall telnetd

    Translation: push 5-10 seconds, start telnet. push greater than 10 seconds, kill telnet. The "-p 23" tells telnet which port to listen on; you can use an alternate port if you want.

    telnet will only be available on the local network, not from the internet.

    Thank you for the answer. I use Tomato Victek mod so I put "/usr/sbin/telnetd -p 23 -l /bin/sh" in the first custom script box and "/usr/bin/killall telnetd" in the seccond custom script box.

    Thanks again!
