Can anyone tell me why I've lost the ability to access my blag server using telnet from my MS windows 2000 computer? I used to be able to connect with
"Microsoft Telnet> open"
but now it says
"Connecting To not open a connection to host: Connect failed"

you need to have "telnet-server" installled

apt-get install telnet-server

Menu -> System Settings -> Server Settings -> Services.

Make sure telnet-server is checked off.

By "checked off" he means "checked" not "off" ;)

I'd recommend using ssh instead of telnet though as it is more secure.

/sbin/service sshd start

Will start the sshd server. There are lots of windows ssh clients.

Just to add on to what jebba said, a good SSH/Telnet client for Windows is PuTTY:
