A. Non-Windows clients that connect to a Windows Telnet server might work better if the Telnet server is in Stream mode rather than Console mode. To change your server to use Stream mode, go to the command prompt and type

tlntadmn config mode=stream

To check your current mode under Windows XP, type

tlntadmn
Windows will display the mode under Mode of Operation. For example,
Alt Key Mapped to 'CTRL+A' : YES                              Idle session timeout : 1 hours                              Max connections : 2                              Telnet port : 23                              Max failed login attempts : 3                              End tasks on disconnect : NO                              Mode of Operation : Stream                              Authentication Mechanism : NTLM, Password                              Default Domain : TRINITY                              State : Stopped
