Subject:   erratic telnet modes
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
When I telnet into my local FreeBSD-stable box from a DOS box
running NCSA telnet 2408b, I get erratic telnet mode settings (echo
and block mode).  When I telnet into local non-FreeBSD boxes
or non-local FreeBSD-stable boxes, the problem doesn't manifest.
I even grabbed the telnet daemon from one of the remote FreeBSD-stable
boxes to be sure I didn't just have a broken telnet daemon, and
it didn't help.  Is this seems pretty odd, and it is quite annoying
to have to make three or four attempts to establish a telnet session.
It seems like the echo and block bits are just random, with about a
50/50 chance on each, so only about 1/4 of my attempts come up the
way I want...
