I've figured out how to make it work in XP, but since the manual doesn't
show any examples for XP, the workaround isn't documented, and the manual
may be incorrect even for Win2000 (see below), I'd contact the help desk
before doing anything.
In WinXP, if you look in the "Innovative Millennium" window after clicking
the Telnet button in the control bar, you should see that the file
"atelnet.bat" is run in response to the call for telnet. In other words,
Millennium doesn't appear to be looking for admin.cmd---it's looking for
atelnet.bat. Instead of naming the text file admin.cmd, name it
atelnet.bat. And because it's a DOS file, make sure the path to the telnet
app complies with DOS file naming conventions. Example:
This fires up the QVT telnet client when the Telnet button in the control
bar is clicked.
In Win2000, it looks like Mill is looking for atelnet.cmd, not admin.cmd,
but I'd still contact the helpdesk before defying the almighty manual.
