Hi

I am trying to telnet to another computer on a network i enter the followinf command from a command prompt

"telnet ict221"

ict221 is the computer name.

But when i enter this command i get the following error message

"could not open a connection to host on port 23: connect failed"

Any suggestions why this error is appearing?

cheers

I don't know anything about using Telnet to connect to another computer, but I found this here click here


If telnet is not able to connect to the remote host specified in <hostname> or establish a connection on the <port> specified, it will report an error similar to the following:
C:> telnet fred.plus.com <CR>
Connecting To fred.plus.com...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed
C:> telnet mail.plus.net 60 <CR>
Connecting To mail.plus.com...Could not open connection to the host, on port 60: Connect failed.
C:> telnet 60.92.12.56 74 <CR>
Connecting To 60.92.12.56...Could not open connection to the host, on port 74: Connect failed.

If this happens check you have the correct hostname / IP address and port and try again.

There are several ways in which the telnet program can be run in Windows:

is there a firewall blocking port 23?
