ok i was playing around for telnet for the first time on a win xp computer, and i noticed the default port to connect to is port 23, and the telnet is all in dos, i dont know if there is a GUI version on xp, but if there is i cant find it. so I spent 2 hours trying to figure how to get it off that default port and im completely stuck can anyone tell me how to do it?

There's a huge difference in what port it connects to. 21 is ftp, 23 is telnet. If you use telnet to go to port 21, you don't get the same thing. Here's what you wanna do:

telnet host port

So an example:
>telnet 67

That will connect to on port 67

the telnet can be accessed through the command prompt by typing

>telnet 23

thats pretty much what pergesu just said, but i just wanted to point out that it can be done through the command prompt opposed to searching for the file telnet and opening it.
