So, I can't use
telnet to connect to any server but it works fine from a different computer. It just says it can't connect. I tried the following things:
- Disable firewall and AV protection. (Basically, there was no security feature left online)
- Telnet is set to "Trusted" in my AV protection. (Kaspersky Internet Security 2011)
- Using Putty to telnet, but apparently Putty's connection is also inhibited. (Says it can't connect to host)
- Disabling the
telnetclient in Control Panel and then re-enabling it. (Windows 7 Ultimate)
hostsfile is clean.
- Checked for nasties using MBAM and KIS 2011 as well as going though my HijackThis logs, nothing found.
I can connect to the same machines/servers through the web browser, ping, tracert, etc. Only
telnet seems to be blocked.
Any other thoughts?
