Re: telnet, ftp unknown service
I noticed that cygwin telnet works when I specify the port to use in the
command line like this :
telnet <hosts> 23.
So I presumed it was a problem with my "services" file, I took the one of a
colleague (where cygwin telnet works correctly) but it's still the same.
Please, any help is welcome, I am desperate.
