I've been telnetting to cyberspace.org for years, but have recently started not being able to on my WinXP (SP2) PC (not sure what's changed).
There are several ways I can telnet, but for example, on my Win98SE PC, I can open a DOS prompt and type:
and a telnet window appears and I can login. I can still do this even today.
However, if I go to the cmd prompt on my WinXP PC, and type:
I get this:
Connecting To cyberspace.org...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

If I go into my WinXP Control Panel, the Firewall is turned off, and I don't believe I'm running any other firewall.
Any ideas why I can't telnet to cyberspace.org on my WinXP PC? Thanks.
