    Hi,
    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?

    ok, it seemed to copy in telnet but didn't show it even with local echo on. I pressed Enter and saw it working. However it doesn't seem to copy multiple lines into the telnet window :(. Like for eg:-

    GET / HTTP/1.0
    Host: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    User-Agent: ABCD

    It seems only the first line is being copied.

    It's so much more easier in Linux, all that you copy is shown and multiple lines are copied too.

    I bet it doesn't recognize the carriage return :(
