Is it possible to telnet to an IP address?


#1

I am forced to use a telnet proxy where I work, and I can’t seem to connect via telnet when using a hostname. I’ll speak to the necessary people here to try and get it resolved, but in the meantime, is there an IP address I can use?

I believe gaz.dreamhost.com is my host server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sure you can.
