    well im running xp and when i use tellnet and connect to something ,anything that is,
    ill connect but there are 2 scenarioes that happen

    1. it'll connect and cmd prompt screen will go blank and when i type the blinking underscore moves but no letters no message but the tittle changes to something like
    "telnet 193.89.345.2"


    2.i connect jus the same but the words that were tthere stay there and it starts writting at the top like it should but no messages show up


    in both scenarioes randomly and rarely it go like that then the message that should show up does and it starts working but ussually not

    What telnet program are you using? Where are you trying to telnet to?

    Mpre than likely it is a setting that is not right in the program. Re-check all of the settings and try again.
