I want to access my server from telnet. Whenver I add any site on the server and give that site permission. I am abl to do the telnet but I am not able to do the telnet my server.
Is there any way I can do the telnet with my server.
From start I click run and telnet the primary IP address of my server.
In host I write the host and pw the password. But it says login incorrect.
Let me know where I am going wrong?

Jolly, I only could guess. Perhaps there is a firewall that you are going through which is denying you access? Are you able to set up a new user and get access?

If you are trying to telnet in and use root as the id that won't work. You need to go in with a less privilidged id then type "su" and then the root password - just a guess ...
