Getting Telnet or Sclient (mud client) to stop freezing upon trying too connect.

When ever I use Telnet or Sclient (Mud client) to connect to a mud they lock up or freeze.
How can I correct this?

I have installed RH6.1 several times. This just recently started happening. I'm using a Micron P166 with 48Megs RAM and a 1.5GB HD.

why do you connect to whois (4321)?
You never get some response there, if you do not talk the expected protocol.
Connect to port 23 with telnet

Port 4321 is the port too a game. Called the midnight hour. port 23 would take me too the main server. I have tried both 4321 and 23 and all it says is trying  206.230.220.4....

Before LINUX I had WIN98 with ZMUD and I could get too the address just fine even in telnet. This only recently started happening recently. The first few installs Telnet worked fine. I did see something strange on a REBOOT STDIN does not equal TTY.
NO idea what it means but it was different
