This should be a simple one. I am running Windows XP Prof with IIS 5.1.
From the ‘DOS Prompt’ I am trying send an HTTP request to my own server, on
the same computer, using TELNET. Ultimately, I will do an HTTP request
using the “GET” command.
From the DOS prompt using these commands, I get these errors:
returns error “Could not open connection to the host; on port 23…”
c:\>TELNET localhost 80
apparently connects, but another black DOS like window opens with caption
‘Telnet localhost’. There is a blinking cursor, but I cannot type
anything – it looks like a dead window.
How can I figure out which port # to use?

The blank screen is probably working okay, apart from the fact that
you can’t see what it’s doing. Try
Microsoft Telnet>set LOCAL_ECHO ON
Microsoft Telnet>open localhost 80

It helped, somewhat, but still apparently no connection. I started a new
thread on this one.
