windows 2003 R2 won't allow a tcp socket connection

I have a windows 2003 R2 server that I need to connect to via tcp on port 25333. When I try to connect via telnet, I receive the following message:  
   "Connecting To 192.168.100.105...Could not open connection to the host, on port 25333: Connect failed".

I ran netstat -aon and see the localhost 127.0.0.1 listening on that port, but not the server's ip.

I don't have an active firewall, or any other restriction that I know of.  I have tried starting the telnet service but that does no good either.

Any help greatly appreciated before I lose the rest of my (sparse) hair!

And what has a process ID of 1828 in task manager under processes? You will have to enable the column.

Perhaps you can explain what you are trying to achieve? If you have a service listening on the ports you want to connect to they need to be listening on the LAN IP.

If you telnet on the server itself to 127.0.0.1 on that port what happens?

What service are you trying to connect to on that port?

I can telnet to the localhost, no problem.  I am just trying to establish a telnet connection from a command window.
