yes, the base.google.com example works verbatim, and you can use a normal web browser to compare your results. I also use this regularly to download a file from my dropbox, but am not giving out my dropbox member number.

Maybe it is neater if you combine lines 1. and 2. like this: telnet -f TelnetLog.txt dl.dropbox.com 80

You can actually cut and paste my commands straight from the second example; you only have to customize the dropbox member number.

The telnet -f TelNetLogFileName.txt needs to be issued at the cmd prompt. (See telnet /?) for help. The commands 3-8 are issued inside telnet at the telnet prompt. open dl.dropbox.com 80 is a telnet command, not a cmd command. It is different to one's usual method of calling telnet, where one follows telnet with the url.
