listen on port 7550
Posted on 2012-03-20
We have a data interchange process which transfers data across a VPN. The sender wants to telnet on port 7550. Microsoft telnet cannot (to our knowledge) be set to listen on a port higher than 1023 (tlntadmn config port=7550 returns an error saying to select a port lower than 1024). The sending application cannot send on ports less than 1024. The sender is testing using
telnet xx.yy.zz.aa 7550
(where xx.yy.zz.aa is the destination IP). It fails obviously, and a
netstat -an | find /i "listening" does not show 7550 nor does "established".
Anyone know a way to trick telnet to listen on 7550? Is there a third party product which does?
