I seldom use Telnet, but it seems to be working fine for me on Win2K. It's been a long time and the last couple times I used Putty. All I did though was follow these instructions here to refresh my memory a bit and it worked exactly as described (except I used a different website)

//BTW -- are you using the underscore? e.g. "set local_echo"

no, i didnt use an underscore, like the thing told me to. i followed what that link said to do (what i tried on my own), and it still didn't work. yeah, it echos before i connect, but after i do, it wont show what im typing.

ill look at putty, thanks.

I'm sorry, but it still works if Telnet is allowed. What you should see echoed is something along these lines:

If you are not seeing that, then Telnet is disabled, or you don't belong there. Based on your question I'll assume it's the former and not the latter.

As an added note, I only get your problem where it doesn't echo locally when I visit sites that I know for sure don't have Telnet enabled.
