Telnet through Proxy/Firewall

By pbtoms ·
We have just set up a DSL connection at the law firm I work for. We have a SonicWall firewall connected to a server running Proxy Server, which then connects to the network. The attorneys use a research software package that uses Telnet, and it isn't working. Telnet from start:run doesn't work, either. They work on my PC, but not the attys'. I gave permissions to "Everyone" and "domain users" and a specific attorney to Telnet and Everything (I forget exactly what it was called) on the Proxy Server, and allowed outgoing Telnet on the Firewall. Any ideas?

You will need to make an in/outgoing rule in order to allow Telnet traffic to an specific IP address.
Telnet works on port 23 and by default is blocked, due to the many remote-control and remote configuration tools that can be used.

Actually, the problem turned out to be a bonehead error on my part. This whole upgrade thing involved adding a different proxy server, and I didn't reinstall the proxy client. When I did that, it worked. :-P
