fTelnet for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Quick Tips

  • If the PlayBook keyboard isn't visible, swipe from the bottom-left corner of the device to the middle of the device. This is a standard PlayBook gesture that should bring up the keyboard in most applications.
  • To bring down the application menu, swipe down from the top of the screen to the bottom of the device. This is also a standard PlayBook gesture that should bring up the application menu in most applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I'm typing, but nothing is happening
    This should have been fixed in the latest version, but if it is still happening please try clicking the client area of the screen to give fTelnet focus before you type.
  • Does fTelnet support SSH
    No, it does not. Support is not planned to be added either, sorry.
  • Does fTelnet support Chinese characters
    Sorry, no, fTelnet only supports some of the single-byte character sets, and none of the multi-byte character sets.
