It sounds like the way to get this working would be to have whatever sits in fr
nt that accepts the 1st inbound telnet - have it initiate an outbound binary te
net connection to the second host.
Yes, I think so. I thought that Synchronet might work doing that but have found that I also have issues attempting to download after I have opened a telgate connection to another bbs from Synchronet.
I am not aware of any frontends that will properly initiate the binary connetion. :(

Mystic can do a double telnet back to Mystic. That is the only working example that I'm aware of at the moment. Looking to see if there is a
I believe the way Mystic works is that its behavior varies depending on the connection circumstances. For example:
If you are connected via a telnet client and you do an outbound telnet, then Mystic knows that your telnet client can handle the telnet negotiation, so it connects but passes any telnet negotiations directly to your client and any response from the client directly to the outbound telnet server.
But if you are connected via SSH or RLOGIN and you do an outbound telnet connection, then Mystic knows that it must translate from telnet to SSH/RLOGIN and it will handle all of the telnet negotiations so they never reach your client (because your client won't be able to handle telnet stuff).
