Question


Greets all,

I am a 'linux newbie'...i've gotten redhat linux 7.0 installed, and i've gotten the telnet-server package installed. So now I can telnet to myself by doing
'telnet localhost' ... I have a prog that is suppose to run
on port 9000 ... however whenever I try to use :
'telnet localhost [9000]' i get [9000]: bad port number ...

can anyone give me an idea what i'm doing wrong...or what
a valid port number would be?

thanks.

You need to type the port number without the brackets. "telnet localhost 9000" should work fine.
