I want to connect to some bbs networks but im behind a very strict proxy server. I was wondering if there is a client or way to make the telnet port (23) go through port 80 just as skype does for voice conferencing and trillian does for irc.  

Thanks for the help

If you want the proxy server to let you go to those places, you need to talk to the folks who run it.

Tunnelling over port 80 will just encourage them to upgrade to a proxy that stops you from doing that, and blocks skype and trillian too....

sure:

Can use the telnet 'program' to telnett into any OPEN port.  As you know, telnet normally tries to come 'in' using TCP on PORT 23, but you can 'change' that in the command line to what ever port you want it to (this is 'guessing' that you are using a Windows OS).  For example to telnet to port 80 on a 'web server', you would use the following syntax:

telnet www.myserver.com 80

I don't know if that was exactly what you were looking for, but hey, I tried.

Port 23 is on the 'other side' not on your side.  Is it that you want to ACCESS a computer with port 23 open?  So you have some 'server' stopping this connection from either going out to port 23, or from coming back into you with the return of port 23 traffic???

I was thinking you wanted to use the TELNET software to access a port other then the normal port 23.  Seems to me that you want to do the INVERSE of that.

Exactly  i  cant access 23 becuase of my isp's  restrictions. Thats why i mentioned the programs like trillian that let me access irc (usu. 6667) through 80.

I really 'doubt' an ISP would block port 23, but if you say so ....

Are you sure it is not the local sys. admin or power that be.

From what you wrote ... it would be like McDonalds saying we do not allow drinks to be sold with our meals?

doesn't hopster do this?

you could set up an outside machine that's not filtered yet on port 80 with squid, to redirect to port 80.  Or even less complicated.  Set up a *nix (BSD, Linux, Unix, etc) with an SSH shell up on port 80. Connect to it. from there you can telnet to your hearts delight.
