Subject Re: is this module integrated with handlers at all
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2003 20:10:01 GMT
It is sort of in it's infancy... and certainly could use all the help we can get
in really rounding it out.

As a matter of fact, I'm looking at a 'vanilla' telnet handler (filter and
bucket type) that could hand the lightweight requirements of other
protocols such as smtp, ftp, etc.  This would simply comply with the
telnet spec (FF over the wire as FFFF, create a custom bucket for
telnet metadata such as IP, SYNC etc.)

As far as handler integration, I believe this module doesn't at the moment.
I wish it would and might help if I free up some time next month.
