Tcp problem

I have a 5215 Mac running 7.5.5 & OT 1.1.2
I'm etherneted to the University computer system.
Netscape works fine.  However when launching either Telnet or Eudora the error message Mac OS error -43 appears and TCP error 440 appears.
Any help would be appreciated

A -43 error (fnfErr) indicates a file or folder not found or something else missing from the system. I'm not sure about the TCP error, but it suggests to me that you should check that you have the latest version of MacTCP and that there is no error in the file or its settings.

Try the following:

1. Reinstall MacTCP.
2. Ensure that the file MacTCP DNR is in the System folder (not the Control Panels, even though it is listed as a CP device.)
3. Check that a copy of MacTCP Prep is in both the System folder and in the Preferences folder in the System folder.

Reboot the computer and see if you can open telnet. If that's not the solution, then there must be something wrong with the Sys 7.5.5./OT combination.

Good luck.

Rifty.
