I have a script that required Telnet so I activated it in Win 7. When I try to test a connection from "Administrator: Command Prompt" I immidiately get "Connection to host lost
" after I entered the password.
telnet -l myusername telnetserver 1002
When I try to connect with the same command from Linux (a VM, different IP) or PuTTY (on the local machine, same IP as cmd) and the Telnet.exe double-clicked it works without a problem. What's the difference in the cmd-version of Telnet?
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>tlntadmn
The following are the settings on localhost
Alt Key Mapped to 'CTRL+A' : YES
Idle session timeout : 1 hours
Max connections : 2
Telnet port : 1002
Max failed login attempts : 3
End tasks on disconnect : YES
Mode of Operation : Console
Authentication Mechanism : Password
Default Domain : telnetserver
State : Running
Any ideas what's wrong? Thanks.
