I was telneting whois.internic.com (GUIDE TO mostly HARMLESS HACKING Beginners Series #2, Section 3 :p). But I get a "Connection closed by foreign host." message after every query. Even after port scanning (nmap) and telneting to random servers, I get this error after some seconds pause; although I am able to connect to the servers.
Telnet is enabled in guarddog and in the /etc/inetd.conf.
Am I wishing some packages?
