    "Connection closed by foreign host" is all my mac says when I type in this command. Anyone here who could help me?

    You can do it on Windows too, the process is quite similar, just open cmd and type pkgmgr /iu"TelnetClient" (hit enter) and then restart cmd. Next type Telnet (hit enter) O (hit enter) and finally type towel.blinkenlights.nl and press enter, and you're done!
