I'm guessing from what you're saying that you are using Windows. If
so, try either the standard
telnet program as shipped with Windows, or my prefered option, Hyper

shipped with Windows. If you need ssh access, try Open SSH for

Marriage (N.): An arrangement which usually results in twice the
of arguing and half the amount of sex.
