Re: telnet with port

it looks like the remote device you are trying to telnet to is not "listing" on that specific port number.

Re: telnet with port

well first you need to install a telnet server, in your telnet server configuration you tell the telnet server to listen to a specific port.

The easiest way to do things like this just for testing purposes is to use an realy old program called Netcat.

Then we have the small problem of firewalls, if the host has a software firewall you would need to configure it to let the desired ports through.

And of course all routing and firewall/nat issues. but that is a different question.

Re: telnet with port

Are you performing any PAT or NAT between the switch and the remote devices?

What happens when you try and use port 23?

Re: telnet with port

when i m trying with 23/80 it is ok, telnet is getting fine. but when i m trying with other ports its not happening..

Re: telnet with port

OK - if 23/80 is working for your telnet, why are you trying different ports?

Are the devices you are trying to connect to using different ports actually "listening" for a telnet connection using that port?

Re: telnet with port

yes, some application needs to connect through different ports, so I need to check the port is open or not.

Re: telnet with port

The I would suggest that you check on the server itself if it is "listening" on that specific port number.

The "netstat" command works on Windows and Linux.

Re: telnet with port

there is a ping utility called slping.

It will ping on any port you specify. I uploaded the program once before, it is a .exe program.

Here is the link with instructions too.

This will tell you if the device is open for any port number. If not then you will need to go to the server and do a netstat -a to see if the port is listening or established.
