    telnet show greetings only in Linux

    I have a programmer that installed a POP running by java. The problem is when I do telnet using WINDOWS XP, there's no greetings. It's just blank screen, no letters appear but the logs in the POP server shows that this XP is connecting. But when I do telnet using a LINUX OS, it has greetings and I can type a command there.

    Is there a different algorithm between telnet in WINDOWS AND LINUX?

    There is shouldn't be any difference in the telnet clients, they should conform to the standard in set in the RFC. It's also pretty damn easy to code a telnet client which will conform to these standards. Perhaps one of the clients doesn't conform to the standard. Why are you logging into a POP server with telnet anyway? Why not use a mail client?
