telnet question 2

Ok, I've managed to telnet into my netbook from my pc: just one problem. I'm faced with a black screen with a blinking cursor, and I can't seem to elicit a response of any kind. I turned on local echo, so I can see what I type, I'm just not sure how to proceed. Help a newb out?

Why would you want to when there are so many more useful alternatives

It would help us understand what you are doing if you could let us know exactly what steps you have taken to get where you are so that we can advise on next steps.

Sure, no problem. I enabled telnet on both computers, then I used a port scanner to identify open ports on my netbook, and I've been telneting into it using port 135. I've managed to establish a connection, but after that I'm faced with a blank command line window, and nothing I type in seems to get a response. I tried creating a new inbound rule on my netbook in the firewall settings to open port 23, but that doesn't seem to work either. That's about the size of it so far.

Are you running Windows seven on both machines? If so, make sure you enable "Telnet Server" on the machine you want to telnet TO and "telnet client" on the one you want to telnet FROM (enable server and client if you want to go either way). Make sure that the servers are started and then in a command tool windows enter:- "telnet <ip address of the other machine>" and you should be OK from there.
