NewTELnet P800 is a TELNET terminal emulator for the Sony-ericsson P800 or P900 series. The terminal engine, and user interface are based on the successful PSION and Communicator products. NewTELnet P800 is widely used by systems and network managers to access their equipment remotely, and for this reason it also includes a PING engine.
The user can therefore test the network connectivity and performance using the same application that he later uses to log into the host. The TELNET and PING connections are made via the standard TCP/IP stack built into the mobile telephone which allows GPRS or GSM to be used.
NewTELnet P800 Users are often responsible for large networks, and systems and need extra tools to help them manage their networks. The PING function in newTELnet P800 gives the user a analysis of the response time to a specific host in the network.
One of the most important design considerations was ease of use, for this reason the buttons can be configured by the user to allow easy entry of standard texts, or even program functions. A standard text, or escape sequence is entered in a very simple form, during which any control character can also be easily entered. By doing this the user can enter complex commands with a single menu click.
NewTELnet P800 stores the last ten remote internet addresses connected to, to help the user easily select different hosts without having to enter their addresses for each connection. The user just clicks on the entry, and the connection is immediately started using the correct protocol i.e. PING or TELNET.
