    Well I had a big crash five weeks ago and ended up doing a full install and forgot what I did to get hyperterm (telnet) client to connect to a telnet account from my primary ISP Juno.

    When clicking on "start" and "run" in Windows 2000 and then typing in "telnet://scn.org", I get an error message in a popup box that says:

    "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this function. Click on the folders option to associate a file".

    Well I then clicked on the "folders option" by clicking on "start",
    "settings", "control panel", "folders", "file". I then clicked on "new", "org" and associate the file ending with .org with hypterminal (.ht)

    And I still get the error message indicating that there is a problem. I had this working before and wondering what I am doing wrong. I tried downloading Hyperterminal 8.4, a much newer version that has a free 15 trial period. I went ahead and installed that and it came up fine. However, after uninstalling, the hyperterm would not work. The new installation probably overset something with the file associations, but I can't figure out how to get things associated. The procedures mentioned earlier should have taken care of it, but they didn't.
