    Telnet

    I'm using Windows XP and for some strange reason, I cannot use telnet to connect to any ports on other servers. I checked my firewall and made sure telnet is allowed outbound and inbound traffic. Any advice?

    What servers are you trying to connect to?

    Code:
     telnet smtp.mail.yahoo.com 25
    What the problem is????



    As long as you can supply proper credentils......(maybe)........(or if not you cant you can still send emails)......

    or if you wana check your emails:
    Code:
     telnet pop.mail.yahoo.com 110
    enter your correct user name/password and your away!


    You probably was not entering the correct port number at the end - telnet defaults to port 23 - but mail is either port 25 (send) or 110 (receive) you need to enter these at the end of your command depending what you want to do.

    hence: ............telnet pop.mail.yahoo.com 110 ..............to check your emails

    ......................telnet smtp.mail.yahoo.com 25 ................ to send your emails.


    Hope this cleared it up for you!
