Cannot telnet from windows client.
Hi folks. I'm pretty much a newbie with Linux, so please take that into account. I have a linux box hosting some software on my network. One Linux box and around 20 Windows XP boxes that Telnet and/or SSH to it. We had some problems a few months back connecting to port 23 using NetTerm, so our Linux software provider guys told us to switch to Secure NetTerm and connect to port 22 instead... worked great. Well, now we're needing to go back to NetTerm and connect to the default port 23 again... so here I am.
I can get on the Linux box and "telnet localhost" and it prompts me for a logon. If I get on a windows client and try "telnet 192.168.1.10" it gives me "getaddrinfo: localhost: Connection timed out" "Temporary failure in name resolution: Illegal seek".
Anyone have any good ideas for me to try?
