This is because your computer can not connect to the telnet server due to the type of windows you are running.Or you might just have to turn all telnet servers on by activating it in settings. Although i would not recommend you do this,as the telent service is a target for all hackers and you are Likely to pick up a virus.For more info or help please email me at camerondeal2004@gmail.com or camdeal20042@gamil.com.

You need telnet in "turn window features on or off" to be on.
Batch files are awesome.

This is really old, but still you can do this in Vista, 7, and 8 but you need to find stuff.

Just type CMD in start menu.

Then in cmd type "telnet"

then type "o"

And then type "towel.blinkenlights.nl"

EASY!

Enjoy

*Hint* if u want a more color full movie

Type "color oa" in cmd before u type telnet.

If this is a hack try: "telnet %%"
where %% is a link underneath:

WINTERMUTE.HOMEUNIX.COM
bbs.hispamsx.org
scn.org
tek1systems.com
warzone.dyndns.org

just some nice BBS for the console ...

You can also type "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl".
This will also work in other OS's. In Mac, or other *nix environments, you just need to open a terminal and enter the same command.

In windows, under Vista and newer, you need to allow "telnet client" under the Programs and Features menu.

Not a hack, it's simply connecting telnet to a remote server, and this is pretty old but it's nice to see people still know about it.

CamWaite (author)2011-03-14

Not sure if anyone said but on vista and 7 you have to enable telnet as described here: http://www.fettesps.com/windows-7-enable-telnet/

Click the Start button , click Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. In the Windows Features dialog box, select the Telnet Client check box. Click OK. The installation might take several minutes.

what? that comment is pretty old

You can enable vista to allow telnet by going to:
Control Panel> Programs and Features> Turn Windows Features On and Off.

Scroll down the list and put a check next to Telnet Client. Let the computer configure. (took me about 2-3 minutes) Then it should work. =]
