Windows 7: Telnet error from cmd, ok from PuTTY

02 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Telnet error from cmd, ok from PuTTY

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.
