OK, I'll take it that your connectivity method requires this. Probable it's because in SP2 Telnet is disabled.
So, click Start, Run type services.msc and press Enter. Locate the Telnet item, right click, click Start.

I am using a 2 yr old AMD AthlonXP 1800+ powered PC running Win XP Home SP2. Also Norton Systemworks 2003 all updated.
I also have a broadband connection so everything is up to date.
2 days ago while I was browsing my net connection just stopped. Finally The ISP tech cane home and found out the the main antenna power plug had come off.
This is a cable connection which I log on tousing a login client provided by the ISP.
So anyway after the tech guy came in he checked up everything and said the network was fine but when he came to check up my machine apparently the Telnet service from the services window is missing and I cannot use the login client without that.
He suggested that I reinstall windows.
Thats the last thing I want to do.
Could somebody help me out here? Is there anyway just to import that service?
Only 2 incidents I can think of whihc may have even remotely affected my computer.
I installed a new stick of RAM last week.
Also last week during a routine AV scan Norton deleted a file called cmd.ftp (or something similar) bcos it was infected with the Sasser worm.
