thats not the way it's done. You can try something like <A HREF="" target="_new">this</A>

no, I mean that i want to telnet to a router, but before I do that, I want to tel net to an anonymous telnet host first.
me -> anon telnet -> router

oh, you said surf which implies http. OK, I don't think there are machines on the Internet just sitting there waiting for you to telnet to them so you can hop to another machine. Maybe 10 years ago. These days telnet is one of the biggest security breaches you could possibly expose. Thats why practically nobody exposes it any more, if anything they would use SSH. But again, good luck finding anyone that will allow someone they don't know on their machine.

and why would you need to telnet into a router anonymously? just do a port scan on a bunch of subnets, sooner or later your bound to find some poor sap that can be your scape goat.

my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!

No, lol,
I'm not trying to find a scape goat or even do something where I might need a scape goat. I'm just very new to networking and I want to play around with my router and mess with my settings. Sorry for the implication that I was going to cause havoc or something!
