    Sorry for my ignorance, but what's telnet?
    When I try to do it, a message box appears telling me that the connection ahs been closed. What does that mean?

    in windows do this...

    click start then run, in the tun box type "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl"

    without the ""

    Telnet is a layer 7 application which runs ontop of tcp/IP it allows a user to remotely connect to another device... ("remote terminal connection service")
