Solved How to telnet to a specific port?

Can anyone tell me how to telnet to an address using a specific port?

I've tried the following:

telnet 206.XXX.244.XXX 36985
telnet 206.XXX.244.XXX:36985

If either of those are correct, I suppose a route just hasn't been set up between the two hosts.

Thanks in advance.

✔ Best Answer
By default, Telnet servers listen on TCP port 23.

You have to configure the server and all firewalls and proxies.

Also depends on the client. Some can use telnet ip address port instead of ip address:port. host /PORT=80 and others.

See man telnet or use telnet --help or your help system.

I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.

the above commands are OK, but the telnet server on 206.XXX.244.XXX must be set to listen on port 36985

Please try to change the port of your telnet server in linux machine.
