    Question telent to port 21

    well this is a very simple problem ..
    when I telnet to other ports of a computer in my network it ussually give me this error ..
    connecting to 10.100.*.* ... could not open connection to that host on port <port no#>: connection failed

    however when I connect to it on port 21 .. the following happens
    I get a blank screen
    after the first charecter I type on the screen I get back my computer prompt with the charecter I had typed displayed above it ..

    if I have not been clear please tell me I'll take some screen shots and try to explain what I mean

    if some one could please tell me why this is happening I shall be gratefull

    btw am still upset over those negs :'( ..

    Do you have the server installed? Is it running? Is the port open?

    I'm sorry
    I forgot to mention that no server is running what I want to know is why doesnt it give my the same response for the ftp port as it did for the others. All ports are closed i had first telneted to port 80 that gave the error message and later to port 21. The computer isnt mine but my roommates I had asked him to close both ports and no server was running i checked myself.

    once again thank you.

    Hey Hey,

    A couple of things would be useful here...

    Screen Shot to Clarify what you mean
    Output from Netstat -an
    and possibly output from fport (that could come later if needed)...

    Throw those up and we'll take a look through... Since it's a 10. address you really don't have to worry about masking it...

    Peace,
