Can't connect to Sun Solaris7 system with telnet.

(OP)
Need help regarding using telnet to connect to my Sparcstation2 Sun machine running Solaris7 OS. It used to work OK when I had Solaris 2.4. Am running an Intel Pentium III with Windows 98 2nd edition. Have 5 computers on the network all PCs running Windows98 and the lone Sun machine.
The network is working OK otherwise.

Thanks for the query but, I have resolved the problem. When I had installed Connection Sharing On the Windows box it had automaticly changed the network address to become the gateway for the other Windows machines and of course the Sun box was left out.

Thanks again.
