Is the telnet client something what came with XP? This thing wont work
well at all.
No. It's a third party package (sorry, I didn't make a note
of the vendor). I have experience with the MS telnet client
and noted that this was different. I will try to take better
notes, on my next visit, and compare the MS client to this one.
I use ssh and the Putty-client if I have to work on my server. If I
remember right there is even a Telnet-Putty, but I am not sure it is an
XP-version (if it makes any difference with that Windows-stuff).
I use PuTTY on my own machines. But, telling a client he
should/must install a particular piece of software (especially
when he obviously as already purchased a third party client)
tends to meet with a bit of... "resistance"? :>
[Like MD's telling patients to quit smoking, lose weight, exercise...]
If its your server I suggest to use sshd and Putty. Works perfect for
me, is fast and safe.
