Is it possible to run telnet commands from an API macro on Cisco touch 10?

Hello,

I'm trying to control lighting in a room by using the macro feature and commands. In order to do this, I need to be able to run telnet commands.  Is it possible to run telnet commands directly from api macro calls?  If so, how would I do this?  I noticed that the documentation contains http calls, but currently cannot find a telnet feature. 

 

If not, is it possible to include telnet client external library for javascript that would work, such as

var request = new XMLHttpRequest();

Thanks

No, the endpoint itself cannot make outbound telnet connections.

As a workaround, you can have some other system monitoring the xFeedback of the endpoint looking for your button presses on the Touch10, then triggering a telnet (or whatever other functionality you may require for other things).  You can do this with something simple and cheap like a Raspberry Pi if you don't have other infrastructure available in your environment to do this from.
