    I have a linux box that I am trying to telnet out of. I've disabled firewall, port forwarding seems fine from the router machine(WinXp), and I can even access the internet from the linux box using browsers. Why oh why can I not telnet out? It is installed, and I can telnet within the machine, but can't access outside addresses. I have a wireless router and a hub hooked up, and I'm sure this is where the issue is. One more thing, when I try to telnet it shows: Trying 1.0.0.0... then times out. ARgh!
