Telnet Through Firewall


I'm not sure if I'm in the right Topic Area for this question, but here goes.

I'm trying to telnet through a firewall, but the firewall wall has all ports blocked except for port 3000, for example. The server I'm trying to telnet to is server.org port 4000.

Is there anyway to make telnet use port 3000 as the outgoing port?

If the administrator blocks the port , it is not correct to go against that

Not really, as telnet uses port 23 by default as destination port. If you admin blocks this port or other ports you want to telnet, there should no way around this as otherwise the firewall would not be secure.

Talk to your admin and ask him, why he blocks the outgoing traffic.
