We have set-up a new SCO server. We are able to Ping and FTP, but not can not Telnet to the server from a Win95 client. The card is a 3Com (3c90x Combo PCI). The error message we get when we try to connect with Telnet is, "Connection to Host lost".  We have tried everything, but to no avail.
Any suggestions?
