I've been trying to talk to an Arduino Ethernet board (not shield)
with telnet, and have go nowhere; thanks to this forum I've got
ping running, but the telnet or udp or web stuff I want to add
simply hangs.  Below is the sketch I've been trying - it runs ok
(without handling telnet) until the EthernetClient line is added,
and then it hangs - no response to ping, nothing on the serial port.

I'm using arduino-1.0.1 and avr-gcc-4.5.3 (on Linux).  It looks as
if the Ethernet library is blocking somewhere, but following through
a maze of C++ class initialisations isn't easy.  Can anyone see
where I might be going wrong, or suggest a working library?

Thanks - Will

Code: [Select]

// Test of Arduino Telnet.
#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

// Undefine this to get a working program.
#undef TELNET

// the media access control (ethernet hardware) address for the Arduino:
byte mac[] = { 0x90, 0xA2, 0xDA, 0x00, 0x92, 0x34 };

// the IP address for the Arduino:
byte ip[] = { 192, 168, 1, 20 };

// telnet defaults to port 23
EthernetServer server(23);

void setup()
 // Initialise the serial device.

 // Initialize the ethernet device
 Ethernet.begin(mac, ip);

 // start listening for clients

void loop()
 // Uncommenting this statement hangs the sketch.
 // The response from ICMP is "Destination Host Unreachable"
 EthernetClient client = server.available();

 // Read bytes from the incoming client and write them back
 // to any clients connected to the server.
#ifdef TELNET
 if (client) {
   char c = client.read();

// eof
