Where it'll be rare that you'll find a telnet port open at a host; let alone one which would be possible to connect to openly without authentication; you must be able to know how to communicate with the port you are accessing.

For example, when connecting via Telnet to I recieve:
C:\Documents and Settings\Gizmo>telnet
Connecting To not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed
Why do I recieve this message? Because Yahoo doesn't have Telnet enabled on "" (which would be port 23); as stated previously, it'll be rare to find one which has telnet open due to the insecurity of the protocol compared to others such as SSH which allows encrypted data transfers.

None of us are going to give some "random guy" who asks on the forums a shell on our machines; we however do use the provider for our IRC servers.
