Telnetting to a port is successful for 3 attempts, but on subsequent, it fails
Posted on 2011-05-02
Hi guys I hope you are all well.
We have an issue where we have 5 systems that all have the same OS, same configuration.
All 5 systems can connect to a 6th system on port 8400 via telnet.
However, one of these machines has the following problem:
It can telnet to the 6th system on 3 goes, but when it tries a 4th or more time, it says the connection was not successful.
This has the problem that we cannot back up data, so want to try and understand what things we can check to ensure that it can telnet successfully.
Any help greatly appreciated.
