Anyone had any success getting the Win2K telnet server to run on WindowsNT
4.0 (sp6). I've moved all the required files, set-up the registry etc but
find it hangs when I start the session (I logon fine but then no command
prompt comes up).

Anyone know a way around this (apart from purchasing a 3rd party telnet
server of course!).

Cheers,
Paul DS.

Your right, there is a telnet install in the NT resource kit; the read
me file included mention's checking: ftp ntrk.microsoft.com\telnetd
for an update of the program.

Both correct, but the telnet server on the resource kit seems to be a beta
copy (unless you know of a later version) and it's as stable as a piece of
wet spaghetti.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was, of course, trying to get something for
nothing but at present I'm using a telnet server from GoodTech - costs a
small licence fee but good enough for what I need. However having had a
quick go at getting the Win2K server installed I was hoping someone else
might have tried this and been able to say "here's what you've missed" or
"give it up".

I've found the Win2K server to work very well (on Win2K!) which is why I was
trying that - oh, and I'm a tight wad who doesn't like spending money. ;-).
