Hello everyone, I would like to set up telnet to work on a small network using xp sp3 machines. (This is for a experiment for learning purposes only). I understand telnet requires port 23 to be forwarded to the pc to be remotely accessed. however, after doing this with my router (D-Link mod:dir 655 ) and disabling all fire walls (only have the windows firewall running) using the tool PFPortChecker [(http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DIR-655/TELNET.htm) link at the bottom] 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?
