No, it is on already cuz when I typed telnet and press enter it showed me this:

'Microsoft Telnet>'

Okay, Microsoft Telnet> means you were at the telnet prompt.

Using mangabird.com or that plus o 443 resulted in an invalid cmd.

Here's what I saw when I used: o 443, there at the bottom, connect failed. It might be you have the wrong port.

Can you contact anyone at mangabird to see how they allow connections?

Ok, Anak I realize something, I didn't forward my ports. After forwarding them using a Port Mapper and using a port listener tool to listen on port 443, It showed a blinking cursor. Does that mean that its forwarded?

The bottom line is that pinging to or through a specific port is a meaningless concept. You ping a network device identified by it's IP address. A port can be thought of as a service running on that device.

Telnet doesn't have any relevance to the original question.

I was thinking the same thing, but didn't think to ask.

To be honest, I'm not sure.

Could you think of a better way? My experience in telnet is from back in the day.

Hi js,

I've been waiting for a response from the other guys but so far nothing. Even though I'm rusty I'd still be willing to help you.

From what Miller said he believes there is a better way to do what you want to do, what exactly is it that you want to do? Because if you're not careful you can get into a lot of trouble with telnet, open ports are an invite to malware. For one thing SSH is more secure, but if there's a better way other than telnet or SSH that'd be the way to go.

Read up here: How Telnet Works: Telnet and see if it helps.

I suspect that a lot of servers will "drop" (i.e. not respond to) ping requests to prevent malicious external activity.
