    any ideas... don't matter to me what it is as long as it fits the following criteria

    1. Cross platform compatible
    2. Not Winsock
    3. Relatively low level
    4. FAST!

    This answer is actually from an earlier post about telnet. We can thank Quzah for this one...

    "Your best bet would be to instead just handle the connection yourself. Do a quick search for "beej" and "socket" in your favourite search engine and you can write your own client to actually handle the connection yourself. (Becaue quite frankly, windows telent really sucks.)"

    These are by nature mutually exclusive. The lower you go, the more platform specific it becomes.
