HELP - 08/12/03 10:52 AM

Okay, I have had a number of posts on a few topics, but I have decided than rather than tie up the boards with a bunch of topics, I would have one post on a number of topics.Please answer, it would really help

1. This is how I connect to a telnet host, i have read a number of diffrent guids, and they all seem to have a diffrent way of doing it, PLEASE CORRECT IF ANY OF IT IS WORNG(sorry about all of the capatols).
I go to the command prompt and type in telnet, than i type in o (ip address) (port number, none for port 23).

2.I have not been successful in getting into any servers, how do I get in.

3. Can someone PLEASE give me some ip addresses that work on port 23.

4. Can someone give me a newbie guide(for EXTREME newbies) other than the beginners guide to hacking and phreaking.

P.S. Please ignore spelling/grammer errors, it is about 3:00 am here, and i am a little disorented.

P.S. #2 I have windows XP if it helps answer any of the questions.

P.S. #3, I have just realized that #2 might not be clear, I cant get a username/password for any servers(they are on telnet and all of the ones i have tried are UNIX)

1, 2, and 3: You will not find many machines hosting telnet with anonymous logins. You will need to find someone that will give you a login and password to succesfully connect to one of these machines. Though SSH is a lot more commen these days telnet is still used in places where security is not important.

Now I have a question for you.

We already told you to look for free shell providers, no one is going to give you addresses of hosts and people running servers deffinately are going to give you access because you have no use for it. What exactly are you planning on doing when you get inside a *nix based machine? Do you think once you log on all your questions will be ansered? Quite the contrary, it will just raise a million more questions. There is not much you can do from a *nix based machine that you cant do from windows. One of the boards most prominent members here does not use linux or unix and has no problem accomplishing any task set before him.

4 no one is going to hold you hand and walk you through the computer world. Just keep trying eventually you'll figure it out. Im sorry for having to be so harsh but sometimes thats what's needed to get the point across.

PS. we really dont care that much about the spelling mistakes if you're really that worries about it try the 'spell check' option right next to 'add reply' and 'preview post'. If your running windows XP try to master that OS before you move onto a *nix OS.

I got these from a port scan. I think the program I used is avaiable on the http://www.undergroundnews.com front page.

[ips removed, bad idea. scan for them yourself.]
