Hi,

Is there any application running on the port 9903?
could you please post the o/p of
#netstat |grep -i 9903

Thanks,
Shan.

Re: HP UX telnet issue

Pardon? You want to be able to telnet to port 9903? You'd need to have something listening to port 9903 in order for that to work - by default, nothing is:

netstat -afinet -n | grep 9903

gives nothing.

But, *why* would you want telnet (assuming that's the service you want to connect to) to run on a non-standard port?

PS, ssh is better in every way...

Is that anything like a _problem_?

Not a very detailed description of anything.

uname -a

> [...] i also wants to telnet server on
> port 9903. [...]

Why? Is there some actual problem which you
are trying to solve?

> [...] not able to telnet on 9903.

"Not able" is not a useful problem
description. It does not say what you did.
It does not say what happened when you did
it. As usual, showing actual commands with
their actual output can be more helpful than
vague descriptions or interpretations.

> even i stopped firewall in server [...]

How, exactly?
