can anyone help me i am getting error saying could not connect to the host on port 23

camdeal20042 (author)matrix man2017-04-20

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 or

Mr_ MikaS (author)2015-09-16

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

coolguy1745 (author)2015-04-25

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 ""



*Hint* if u want a more color full movie

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

rocketman7 (author)2012-02-12

this isn't a hack! This is some ASCII art animation written up by two guys who published it on Telnet!

Dark-player (author)2012-01-05

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


just some nice BBS for the console ...

keeflookeem (author)2011-08-09

You can also type "telnet".
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 really a hack, but still very cool.

azzer98jf (author)2011-06-27

how do i get the sound

scratchr (author)2011-05-10

FYI: the command also works on linux.

XOIIO (author)2011-05-10

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:

Pantalaimonpan (author)2011-01-31

Wahh it won't load the telnet client I waited about 2 hours and it won't load!

stark9000 (author)2010-10-28

awesome awesome awesome !

you guys rock !

Jimmy2190 (author)2010-09-04

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.

messmaker (author)ReCreate2010-02-19

*types a star, and then draws its mate*

ReCreate (author)messmaker2010-02-22

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. =]

thanks alot
