From my windows 2008 server I cannot telnet a particular port on remote system. This port I am able to telnet from other machines.

Please let me know how can I disable firewall in windows 2008 server or allow access to this particular port.

Thank you

In the Server Manager on the summary screen cluck the firewall settings option.

Alternatively it's in Control Panel.  You can disable it completely or add exceptions.

The problem could also be 3rd party security products.

Thanks for your reply.

Apparently the firewall is off. Please refer to the attached screenshot.

What else could be there on this 2008 server which is not allowing me to access the port on another machine?

On another server? The local firewall will not prevent you from accessing resources on remote servers, the firewall on that remote server might.

Then what could be the problem?
Let me explain the problem in detail.
I have a Windows 2008 server and I have a Solaris server. From 2008 server when I try to telnet a port on the Solaris server, it fails. But same port (on Solaris) I am able to telnet from a Windows XP machine. All machines are in the same network.
So where could the problem be. Could the Solaris server be selectively allowing/disallowing calls.

it could be only allowing from certain IP's, if you have a machine that is working then change the Windows 2008 server IP to the same as that machine and check if it works.

What error are you getting from the 2008 server when you try to telnet?
