( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Other monks have pointed to problems with MS telnet server's implementation. My guess is that you've not reached these problems yet as the Telnet server that comes with win2k & up uses funky Microsoft only authentification by default

For win2K (and probably XP) you need to look in the local microsoft help for "telnet admin" and follow the bouncing wizard to change authentication from "NTLM" to "plain."

If MS telnet server doesn't work w/ Net::Telnet and you hae to install another server anyway, consider a ssh server as you won't be passing passwords over the net in the clear. Every cracked box I've seen or heard of has had a password sniffer installed

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
