Sparcz, a tiny telnet server - MASM winsock example code

SparcZerver is a funny network utility, precision crafted for remote access of CDROM drive eject mechanism via an IP based network such as the Internet..! ie. it enables to open and close cdrom drive tray of the computer in which this program is running; from a telnet terminal of an other computer connected to the same network. It also includes options for passing messages, opening files and starting programs on the other end. Keeping this program in the windows startup list will be extremely wise. Originally developed for KGB by a CIA double agent, the program is specially coded to create no windows, it works in hidden in the dark background. It is a bare basic socket server program using winsock API to makes Windows 9x machines telnet accessible [TCP/IP, port=23]. Entire source code of the secret program is included below this page; simply ignore it if you are not a coder. Due to written in assembly language and not even having an icon; the executable weights only about 6kB, zip'ed along with the source code to 4k7 bytes. And it downloads faster than this webpage..!

Download Sparcz - ( Freeware )

Before starting.. the first thing you should know is the IP address of the machine where you are running 'sparcz.exe'. If you don't know your IP number, get MS-DOS prompt and enter command 'ipconfig'.

Note: If you are using dial-up connection, the IP address changes each time you login. B'coz dial-up connections use Dynamic IP address protocol, at each login the client is automatically configured with a new IP address, free available at that time in an IP address pool of your Internet Service Provider.

Windows 98 ipconfig DOS box

If your computer is not configured or not connected to any network, you can use the internal loopback address for testing. Opening 'sparcz.exe' won't show up any windows.. the program works in background and visible on Ctrl+Alt+Delete table. Now run (Start menu -> Run) Telnet program either on current machine or any other computer connected to the network,
give the IP address of SparcZerver as argument (eg. telnet You can do the same in a Unix (Linux, BSD) shell, telnet actually belongs to Unix. Telnet terminal programs are usually available with all operating systems.

Be sure that the 'Local Echo' option is 'ON' at Terminal->Preferences

telnet screen 1

From the telnet terminal you can send the following commands to the sparcz server:

open filename - open the file or program
msg message - place message plainly over screen
box message - show within a messagebox
cdopen - to open CDROM drive door
cdclose - to close CDROM drive door
bye - terminate connection, handles one user at a time
kill - terminate sparczerver

The 'open' function is a much versatile one. It actually uses windows shell interface, the 'ShellExecute' API call. It can open document files and program files, thus a lot of operations can be performed on a remote machine through telnet. See following examples. Sending parameters to a program is currently not supported, feel free to contact me if you need that feature.
