I created my channel and I'm trying to package it for distribution but on my macbook and on my raspberry pi terminal says "command not found: telnet"
telnet Roku-IP-address 8080
Please HELP. Thank you very much
In Putty we use telnet
you connect to your Roku device!
You simply enter the roku ip address without the http or https
220.127.116.11.12 not http://18.104.22.168
watch this video I made
errors like that arrive when the data is to large or information is not present and missing!
Just run the telnet again but reboot or clear cache first!
If this post or above post fixed or solved your problem then mark as solved!
Mac no longer has Telnet installed. Installing Putty on the Mac involves several hoops (installing Xcode, etc).
Trying to put aside the odd instructions from Roku to use the no-longer-built-in telnet command on Mac in the instructions for converting DP channels, is there a way to SSH in or do something else to get this key?
Found a workaround. I think this will help fellow Mac-ppl!
Telnet is not installed on Macs anymore due to it being less secure.
Instead, use the netcat command "nc" with the tag -v (verbose) as follows:
nc -v <Roku-IP-address> 8080
From there, you can execute the keygen command!👍🏻
ROKU...please update Mac/Linux instructions on this page to avoid this craziness!
By default, the Telnet client is not installed on macOS.
General steps to install telnet commands in your Mac machine.
Open Terminal and start to install Homebrew on macOS.
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Input your administrator password and authorize the installation.
Once Homebrew is installed, can start to install the telnet client with the following command.
brew install telnet
When installation has been completed, you can run Telnet as usual:
telnet [hostname/ipaddress] [port number]
