Telnet Client: Windows XP
Telnet Server: Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Can I use the telnet client on my xp machine to determine if tcp port 25 is open on a telnet server (exchange Server)?
I tried, and here is what I get, even though the telnet server (exchange) is listening on port 25.
C:\>telnet outbound.fakemailservertest.net 25
Connecting To outbound.absmailgateway.net...Could not open a connection to host on port 25 : Connect failed
I thought I could do this, but somebody told me the following, and I am not sure if it is correct:
"MS supplied Telnet client to ports is not supported"
