ok im not a hacker our an auditor but more of a programer so i can quite easly have this wrong, but i dont think u can connect onto a port thats not running a telnet service behind it, connecting to a random open port isnt gonna work with just telent, u need to know which protocol the post is running with.

so if im correct, then the port u will be looking for is 23. if the server has no port 23 open then either they are running telnet on a different port, or are smart enough to use SSH (port 23 default). All new linux Major Distro's (well from like FC2) are using SSH and not telnet, telnet is so early XP release.

SSH port default is 22 not 23... 23 is telnet

and Decemberunderground just putting the word ethical in every post does not make us stupid, you are trying to gain access to a server (I'm guessing web server) that you do not own. AND if you had even read my last post to you... you'd know the port number already.

And from the syntax you're using I'm also guessing that you don't yet know enough about how a network works. this should be a good start for you. http://computer.howstuffworks.com/home-network.htm

edit:

after you've read that read this... http://computer.howstuffworks.com/lan-switch.htm

and if I am right and it is a web server it might be good to know a little more about it http://computer.howstuffworks.com/web-server.htm so read that one too

just to clarify, you can use telnet to access more than just telnet services. i use it to diagnose smtp servers (port 25) all the time. hell you could even surf the web by telnetting to port 80 on a web server and issuing the right commands, though it's not going to be a lot of fun.

telnet is so early XP release.

try a bit earlier, say 1969. and though its unsecure doesnt mean its not a useful tool for diagnostics

This is true and I was a nub for forgetting that...

on another me being an noob note none of those links have anything to do with ports I'll see if I can't find one that explains them better. aardwolf remininded me of wikipedia this will kinda explain ports http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TCP_and_UDP_port I'm still looking for a better one too
