More information would help...

I tried it myself and got...
$ telnet
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Attempt
to connect timed out without establishing a
connection this the same error you get?
It apparently belongs to Hernry Ford Community
College. I assume you are supposed to have
telent access? The error seems to imply that
telnet (at port 23) is not answering on that
machine. You should talk to the administrator.

Hammer & Screwdriver Thanks

Thanks man, I really appreciate that you tried...and yes the same thing is happening to me, but the thing is that, my other friends are able to log on...and when I never works..I have not idea why...
We talked to System Administrator and he said: I have load some patches...but he must be done by my other pals are logging in and doing their homework..
But I really appreciate that you tried...and I am very thankful to you...
stay cool...
have fun
Your UNIX pal
