    Telnet ?'s

    i was trying to do a telnet on whois.alldomains.com and for whatever reason it boots me off after i do one search, anybody know why? also, what happens when u telnet to a webserver on port 80? wouldnt the html source show up? cuz it just gives me a wierd blank screen then disconnects me.

    Phonedog,

    The days of telnet are becoming fewer and fewer with the advent of more secure means. As a result the telnet services are secured. So it's not too surprising that you can't telnet to whom every you desire.

    cheers

    ??? Why would you want or need to telnet into a webserver? For that matter, why would you telnet into whois.alldomains.com?
    Telnet was not designed to surf the web.

    whois.alldomains.com is a whois server, and best accessed
    by a whois client. If your system doesn't have one, you can download it.

    whois was meant to be used by a whois client which uses port 43 i believe. i suppose you could do it with telnet if you adheared to the format.

    telnet is handy for a few things still. IRC for one, getting webpage headers, and checking your own ports. If you want to try out a terminal webpage client, go get one of the links or lynx binaries. It is loads of fun!
