Shalom,

Possible causes.

1) Cable unplugged
2) Firewall configuration blocks traffic.
3) Incompatble network configuration with network on the console.
4) telnet blocked by network administration.

if you passwrd contain some special character then you will have to use escapa character "\" before that special char like "*".
