A Telnet Question

6 posts in this topic

Through services.msc if I stop the telnet service then will I be able to telnet to any computer or only a remote user can not telnet to my computer?

Stopping the Telnet service kills the Telnet server, meaning no one can log into your box with Telnet.

Also take note of all the settings, you can make it so the service does not start at boot in the same menu, as well as a few other options that can be useful

By stopping the service, would I be able to telnet to another box?

Yes. Assuming they have telnet enabled.

Telnet.exe = the client, tlntsvr = the server.

One does not rely on the other.

Type net stop tlntsvr <- to stop it temporarily.

Type sc config tlntsvr start= disabled <- to stop it permanently.

With the service disabled nobody can login to you, but you can still say:

telnet adobe.com 80

>GET HTTP/1.0

>

This will perform a simple http request to adobe.com's webserver, using telnet.
