What UTF is and how to use/enable it on telnet server?

Q: What UTF is and how to use/enable it on telnet server?


So I have this little question (out of curiosity) what UTF "version" uses and how (if it's possible) can it be enabled on a telnet server?

Preferred Solution: What UTF is and how to use/enable it on telnet server?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello All,

Just got on to Win 7 Enterprise 64 at work. I was able to add the registry hack for IE7 on Win XP to enable telnet:// links but this has proved to be an issue with IE8 in win7. Has anyone been able to get this to work? Ive been googling for a few days now and even searched the forums. I use SecureCRT and would like it to open when clicking a telnet://x.x.x.x link in IE8. Any help would be appreciated.


A:How to Enable Telnet Links in IE8?

Actually, you aren't actually using IE for telnet, it just calls the built in client so you are using a real client. It is an easier way to start the telnet client though.

There should not be a space in the word TELNET in the Registry Key name, the forum editor must have added that on the other site; happens here as well on lines longer than 75 characters that do not contain a space. That my be why it didn't work for you.
And the wording can be confusing. You create a new Dword value (the DWORD Name part) which contains Data (the DWORD Value part).
You can't rename the Default value.
You right click in the right pane, point to New, click Dword value. A new Name will appear named New Value #1. Should already be highlighted ready to rename. Then name that new item iexplore.exe. You then double click it and set it to zero, though it should already be zero.

It does work for IE8.
You can copy the text in the following code block into Notepad, save it as a .reg file (Be sure to change the Save as Type box to All Files) and double click to create the entry. I've included a line to remove the one with the extraneous space if it exists.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



My telnet shell command already had the rundll32 part. That the website linked above doesn't have the correct value though. It should include the full path as that makes it harder for malware to interfere:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="\"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\rundll32.exe\" \"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\url.dll\",TelnetProtocolHandler %l"

Note that the last character is actually a lowercase letter L, not the number 1.
If your Windows folder is not on C: or is named something else, you'd need to modify that to match your system, or use this version which uses the %Systemroot% variable instead of hard coding the path:

Just wondering if this is possible in any way. I can get to the router via the web interface, but would like to (possibly) have some more control over the settings, so I'm hoping telnet would work. I've tried telnetting to the device, but I keep getting "Connection Refused" errors.

Is there a setting I need to change on the command line side to enable telnet connections?

Or do I need to upgrade the device, and if so, will going to an rv220w be enough, or do I have to go with higher-end stuff?

A:Enable telnet/cli on cisco rv110w?

You're certainly asking a lot from a consumer grade router.

Typically, the consumer grade and even the enterprise/business class routers are built around some sort of Linux/Unix/Posix type core. The amount of functionality you get is based on the amount of effort they've spent in customizing the OS. You're not going to find CLI access on consumer grade stuff as the market doesn't demand it. Your best option if you really want this is to see if there is a hack firmware that gives you this feature.

Incidentally, SonicWall never really provided a CLI. They have a very basic one but they're adding a full function CLI in future firmware releases.

A:I need some help on how to run my FTP Server, and how to use Telnet

To access another computer via telnet that computer must be running a telnet server. This is not the case on most Windows systems and in many cases is not even installed. Port 23 being open does not mean that a telnet server is accessible, running, or even installed. You would also need to know a valid user name and password on that computer.

This forum cannot help you gain access to a computer you do not own or manage. Forum rules do not permit this.

A:To Microsoft - Please enable RDP (server) in Home Premi

I don't know how "standard" it may be, internationally, but in my abode, most ISPs have the facility to log in direct to the email site. But, with your other problem, the only versions with the "server" of Remote Desktop is Professional and Ultimate. Home Premium does NOT have this. It has Remote Desktop Connection, so it can connect to other PC's, but cannot be connected to. Maybe (??) , Microsoft will realise the crippling effect on users and send out an update - maybe!

Just today, I noticed that realtime protection wasn't enabled on Malwarebytes, so I tried re-enabling it with no success. As well, when I tried updating, Malwarebytes was unable to access the update server.
A few days before this happened, I tried to download a song from an MP3 site, but instead of it being an MP3, it turned out to be a Windows executable that Malwarebytes detected as a PUP. I removed the PUP, but I think it may still have been responsible for the problem I currently have.
Also, when I try to run a scan in Malwarebytes, it gets hung up on some files. If I delete a file it gets stuck on, it'll just get stuck on another.

A:Server (WINDOWS 2008) Mail Issue (MAIL ENABLE)

This has now been resolved, by the kind folk at mailenable.

Here are details of the fix, from the email they sent me:-
Ok we have logged into the server and performed a telnet test locally on the
server to see if we were able to connect to the MailEnable POP, IMAP and
SMTP services which were unsuccessful. We could see that you are running
Symantec Endpoint protection which is includes a firewall option. We added
the MailEnable IMAP service to the firewall rules which allowed us to
successfully connect the IMAP service. You can now use the Horde webmail
interface and log in using the IMAP protocol.

We then tried adding the SMTP service to the Symantec Endpoint Protection
firewall rules, however this did not make any difference. So we then
accessed the MailEnable SMTP properties and enabled the alternate port for
the SMTP service to listen on (587). We were then able to telnet to the SMTP
service on port 587 which indicates that there is some other
application/firewall that is blocking access on port 25. I noticed that the
Windows firewall was also running so we added a rule to the firewall for the
SMTP service and can now successfully connect to the service and send using
the Horde webmail interface. I'm quite certain that your Outlook errors
should be addressed so give it go and see if you can send/receive from the
Outlook client.

Cheers, and I hope this helps anyone who has a similar situation.

Best regards

Hit OK
After that you can start Telnet via Command Prompt.


Well, telnet is technically an 'archaic' communications type program. While technically, there are still a lot of devices that use telnet for other things, the more secure communication method for terminal based systems is to use SSH clients like Putty, SecureCRT and the like.

I also believe that MS purposely disabled some of that stuff, in favor of people who really need the old style internet applications like that, would also be more in favor of getting communications software that actually would use it. Like again, SecureCRT or Putty or other similar programs because of the whole 'Anti-Command Line' sentiment with majority of users these days and wanting nice programs with user friendly interfaces.

I would like to change the default port that my Telnet client listens on to another port. Most content on the net does not have the details as required , so i have turned to you all for assistance. I need to change it from 23 to 3990


Common communication ports

TCP port 23 is reserved for Telnet client and server communication. By default, most Telnet clients initiate communication on port 23, and most Telnet servers listen on port 23 for connection requests. You can change the default port assignments with some Telnet client and server software, such as Windows Server 2003 Telnet Client and Server, but port 23 is the universally accepted port for Telnet communication.

I've never used Telnet before. I decided to look into it a little bit and want to try an MUD which I've also never tried before. I knew there were MUD clients but I wanted to use Telnet since I already had it and I want something simple. I found what looked like a good beginner newbie MUD online so I got the connection information to use on Telnet. I was playing with telnet commands and I tired using the MUD connection information to connect with the command "open", but:

As you can see, it didn't work and I was unsuccessful. Anyone on this forum familiar with Telnet?

What command(s) do I use to connect to servers properly on Telnet?

hi im a win7 newbie
my quest is to
how to connect to windows using only ftp/telnet on lan
i tried using by typing the following in cmd
=ftp ip/hostname
it says not connected but when i type
=ping ip
=tracert ip
it works, but still icannot use ftp for that ip
do i need to config the server like 'allow remote connections' in remote settings
plz state every bit if it works for your network /without any software/ if there is a need to config server_ftp is there a way to acces other pc on lan without touching it


Do you have a FTP server installed on the target system?
The "'allow remote connections' in remote settings" enables the remote desktop server, totally unrelated. You need some FTP software or telnet server fro those to work. There isn't anything listening to your connection attempt otherwise.

Q: Telnet

Is there a way to grant a user the right/permission to log into telnet without making them an administrator in Windows 2000?
Just so they can perform some basic operations, like ping, etc.


Logged in as an ordinary user (power user) with an account on the remote machine, you can run telnet to that machine.

I've recently installed a wireless lan in my office. I have Roadrunner cable coming into their router which in turn is attached to a Linksys router. I have one desktop (Dell) running XP Pro hardwire to the router. I also have a laptop and another desktop connected via wireless. I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing. So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing? I've been able to send print from the wireless laptop to the printer attached to the wireless desktop. It's just the folders I'm having problems accessing.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

A:To enable or not to enable (file sharing that is)

Where exactly have "I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing".

If you don't that is fine. But then you can't share files. Just a choice to make.

With a router you should be reasonably protected.

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

A:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.

It's not less simple... the Run box has been integrated into the Start menu search box.

If that black box dissapears straight away, it's because the program has finished. In this case, it means you've not run it correctly, so the program returns an error and closes. Start up a command prompt (click start, type cmd, Enter). Then type your telnet command in there to see what it says.

Do I have to use port 25 or 587 only for smtp connection or can I use any other port ?
If I am getting connection error, how do I know whether this is because of server or is it because port I am using on my end is being used by other application ?

If Port I am using on my end is used by some different application, will I get same error or will it be different error ?

I can access Internet through proxy using http, no problems, but I can not telnet through it (all internet type requests (http, telnet, ftp,...) from the server to the outside network work as expected). The sever has a real Internet access on the outside, and we use the 10.X network on the inside.

I have MS proxy client installed on workstation (tried 95, 98 & 2K) and have tried using IP & IPX modes... I have also tried several Telnet clients on the workstation including the Windows telnet client.

On the server have tried enabling and disabling access control on winsocks, but still no access through it.

Hi prasannakarthiki,

Telnet is not secure if you are talking about connecting over the Internet, however, if you are in a secured local area network within a company, telnet would be ok to use as long as it is deployed and not able to access the Internet.

Use Putty instead of telnet if connecting over the Internet as it is more secure.

Jus had a question about Telnet. How would i use telnet from My school? I dont get how to use the user names and passwords? Can someone plz give me helpful info on how to set this up!?! Thanks

A:Question's about telnet

First of all, telnet is Bad since it is unencrypted and anyone can sniff your passwords and everything you do. I recommend SSH instead.

First you enable telnet on the server computer. On Windows it is a service to install/enable. On unixoid systems you have to enable it in either inetd or xinetd.

If you have a firewall then you have to enable connections to port 23 on the server side.

Telnet uses the users and passwords on its host computer. So if you telnet to a system then you just enter a user and a password on that target system as prompted. Usually you cannot login as the root user via telnet by default.

I am working on a Postfix server and find that everything is operational inside the network (ie at the office). I can telnet to each of the ports open on the Linux box including port 25 INSIDE the network.

I can get to each port (ftp, Apache, ssh, etc) from outside the network (ie Home) with the exception of the SMTP (port 25). My first thought was that I had not opened the firewall and it was blocking this port; however, I have confirmed that the firewall is open and mail is being delivered.

Is there a way to check if my outbound port 25 is blocked? Is that something that is typical in a home DSL connection in the US?

Hey all,

I just completed a job where they wanted to go wireless and switch ISP. Well, I setup all the new ISP WAN info in the router (WRT54G Linksys wireless router), and set the telnet port (23) to the address of their UNIX server. They use a software called Medical Manager, and we have no problems what so ever telnetting to this server from inside the network. The problem I am having, is that it wont telnet from the WAN address. Let me make a small diagram:

Router IP:

The telnet port is forwarded to .99, and I even turned on DMZ to .99, still no telnet to the wan address. The WAN is pingable from any location I am at, and I have a remote connection to one station there at the office. Has anyone ever expeirienced this before?

BTW: I have updated the router to the newest firmware.

A:Telnet through WAN to UNIX

the port forward needs to originate from the router's PUBLIC IP to the
unix server ip.

And I am confused because at the end there are two values for the same key:

@="\"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\rundll32.exe\" \"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\url.dll\",TelnetProtocolHandler %l"


Does the second one replace the first one? What do I call the second one and what kind of key is it?

I tried creating a .reg file and running it but it didn't work.

A:Telnet in IE8 continued

The first one is a plain text string, and the path has to be spelled out.
The second one uses an expandable type entry (REG_EXPAND_SZ), so the %Systemroot% variable can be used. This points to the Windows folder no matter what drive it's on, or what name it's been given.

If Windows is installed on C:\Windows, you can use either.

If windows is installed elsewhere, you'd have to edit the first to match, or use the 2nd one that I've copied here:

First the other computer has to have the telnet server running (I think that has to be installed manually)
And you have to have the telnet client running (also installed manually in programs and features, windows components).

A:how to close port 23 telnet

You can use this excellent listing of what ports are designated for, and what purpose here: This will allow you to be able to determine if you need a port open or not.Port 23 is used for Telnet purposes. If you do not use Telnet services you can disable it using the following method/s.You can stop the service doing the following (Click Start -> Run -> services.msc) and disable it from there. Or with the use of a 3rd party firewall, Such as Online Armor, ZoneAlarm, or Comodo Firewall.Port 21 is used for FTP purposes. That port is up to you to either leave open or not. And Port 80 is a very important one if you want to be able to post here or even access the WWW.

Port 23 is still blocked and i am still unable to use telnet. I am assuming the port is the problem due to when i try and connect via telnet I get a "Could not connect to host on port 23: connection failed". What could the problem be? where should i troubleshoot first?

A:Telnet setup / problem

windows ships with only the Telnet client; the system to which you are attempting the connection needs the Telnet Server which then opens the port 23.

Hi All,

Am trying to:

telnet 25

as our private mail host. Our ISP (TelstraClear/Paradise) insists there is no filtering/blocking on 25, and that the problem is on my PC. My service host (different to ISP) insists that the site is fine (and it is, we can connect from other locations to email, it's just this new ISP setup).

The connection fails for:

telnet 25 and
telnet 25 this is my ISPs SMTP.

However, I can connect to:

telnet 25 (a rival to our ISP)

So this suggests that there is no problem with accesing Port 25 from my PC. I was previously running NOD32, but have totally unistalled it. Have taken down Windows Firewall; rebooted numerous times, have no other Virus/Spy based software even installed.

Tried everything, but failing dismally....

Can anybody assist?

Hi Todd

Just to humor them: why not try things with another PC?

If you've advanced options selected in your broadband modem or router, have a look that no settings in there are amiss.

Of course, there's the magic steps of power cycling the modems, routers, and PCs involved . . . (while praying for luck at the same time)

Curious to hear if you find a cure
Best of luck

Connecting To not open connectin to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

I tried a diferent software vendor and it had the same problem. I ran netstat -an and it shows the port is listening although I'm not sure what that means. I tried using for help but, after over an hour on the phone and much patience on the gentlemen's part who was working with me we couldn't get it working. I have this working on an old laptop with OS of XP Home, the new one has XP Professional. I tried disabling the Windows firewall and making sure Internet settings and Network Connections were similar. I enabled telnet services. I tried following some MS support info for turning on ports for software under exceptions for the firewall. Nothing has worked. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Am I to understand that Telnet was working on your old computer, just not the new laptop....right??

I recently setup a new windows 2003 server. It is not a domain controller or anything special. Just plain windows 2003 server. The problem i am having is: When I go to another pc and try to telnet into this windows 2003 server via ip address or pc name; the connection will take about 15 secs before it shows me a login, then I can log in fine. I have went to other pc's that have windows xp pro and windows 2000 within my network, but all have the 15 secs delay using telnet before a login is shown. If i use telnet on my xp and 2000 pc's and telnet into one of our linux boxes the telnet connects within 1 second...
any help would be greatly appreciated..

I use either the W98 Micro$oft Telnet program version 1.0 or on occasion Peter Tattam's Trumpet Telnet version 0.07. Each program has features the other does not.

Can anyone suggest a site or source for other Telnet programs, preferably freeware?

Ok here we go;
(printers are HP 4050 and OS i win2k)
we have 3 printers and they need to be connected (not at the same time) to 3 different Vlans in our office, to do so they need to change the ip address everytime they go to an other Vlan. This can be done on the printer via telnet.
My problem is that when I write a batch with all the answers in it for the telnet session they are not run in to the session, is there anyway to give an auto command to telnet to read commands from text file or other?

I need to write a vb script with menu for our catering department that runs on every printer to change the Ip address when they are moved to an othe Vlan (user friendly) could you help please?

A:Auto batchfile Telnet

I have found a solution myself it is called tst10.exe it is a telnet scripting exe file when opening it you can see the help file, basicly it has an answer.txt in the same directory where you can set several settings. To change ip address on HP4050 machine's you need to telnet or manualy perform the task. If you need more info let me know.

I am running a machine which i control via the win 2k telnet client, i want to now autonaumously control the machine by using a c++ code such that i can redirect the output of the c++ code directly on this window telnet client. the telnet client i am referring to is the same client which pops up when i run the command in winows 2k: telnet <hostname> <portname>

i just want to know how can we send the output of a c++ code on the telnet client window.



A:c++ output to win 2k telnet client

Why not just implement the telnet protocol directly in the C++ application? There are many TCP/IP libraries that will ease the task...

I have MS Windows 98 SE and it has the Microsoft Telnet Version 1.0 bundled with it. I am facing an annoying problem with it. I can't copy and paste from notepad into the Telnet window after I connect to a host. I need to be able to do this. I have the Local Echo setting turned on too. Is there anyone who's been able to do this or knows how to do this?

Hi, I know telnet is not secure and ssh is a better choice but this is only for educational purposes. I want to telnet a computer in my workgroup. The telnet service is running on both computers. If I type telnet localhost in both computers it works fine and logs on to the same system. However if I type telnet it says can not connect on port 23 or something of that sort. Firewalls on both computers are disabled. What could be the problem?

My mother seems to have had some infection on her computer. I am currently running scans and a virus was found by her AV and deleted. However the computer is very slow, display settings were altered (I've fixed that), and some programs were crashing. These may or may not have had other causes.

However the BIG concern I have is that I found a file in her MY Documents folder entitled Telnettrace.log. In that file, her internet username and password were displayed.

Can someone please explain the significance of this - I'm worried if it means someone has hacked her computer and obtained her username and password.

The clearing up of the virus is something I can work through with a bit of help (will ring AV company in morning) but I am desperate to find out if her security has been compromised.
