Making Simple Sockets Server run Standalone

Is there a way to have this example program which uses Telnet on port 30, for a Max10 FPGA, to run without the aid of the NIOS II Eclipse software? In other words, can I set it up to just have the FPGA development board (terasic MAX 10 NEEK) run standalone with just an Ethernet cable connected to a host machine with a Telnet console, and no uart/jtag uart? I have followed App Note 730 before to successfully self-boot another project. 

 

Thanks!

Even if you do, what are you going to talk to? You'd need something to decode the incoming commands and give some sort of response. A nios will be the easiest option.

NIOS would run internally on the MAX10 FPGA. I'm just saying I'd only want to connect Ethernet, no uart/JTAG cable. And it would be self-bootable. Is this possible?

Can I get any other opinions? The final application needs to not have the JTAG/USB cable connected. This is an embedded device that needs to have predetermined commands issued from a TCP/IP connection to a host computer.

You will need logic to decode the IP and TCP layers, as well as a Mac and something to talk to the phy. These can be done with a core but you need something to decode the TCP after the IP later is stripped off.
