Hi, I\'m new to telnet, I was trying to telnet to a local PC (on my home network, practicing...) running vista (ver. home basic) and I got a blank screen, on the bottom it said connected, but it did not show anything even when i typed commands.

What am I doing wrong

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME 🙄

Generally speaking, you don\'t telnet to your local PC. Unless of course you\'re running a telnet server on that machine. I rather doubt that Vista home basic runs a telnet server by default, so unless you\'ve installed one yourself, it\'s not going to work.

What port did you telnet to that gave you the \'connected\' message?
