No that's wrong. So far none of the solutions presented has given me the IP or hostname of the particular telnet clients involved.
As I mentioned before, you probably didn't read this one, when you start a telnet client it appears in the tasklist In this case, it's tl_server.exe which is Rocket's special telnet server However IF you do *not* login on that telnet server, then no corresponding entry is made in the netstat table, or perhaps one is made and then nulled out again. At the point you want to ask, well what are the ip numbers of these connections, you have 62 tl_server entries and 61 (repeat 61, not 62) netstat entries. That one extra "zombie entry" in the tasklist, is not present in the netstat output. So netstat is apparently only showing live or active connections or whatever you might call it, whereas the windows server is holding on to one or more *extra* zombies. Yes you can kill those *extra* tl_server.exe sessions, but really it would be nice to know what activated them. I killed all the zombies last week, and now I'm back up to about six extra tl_server sessions without corresponding netstat entries -----Original Message----- From: Tony Gravagno <3xk547...@sneakemail.com> To: u2-users <email@example.com> Sent: Mon, Sep 10, 2012 2:37 pm Subject: Re: [U2] [Windows] What's the real goal here? To get the hostname of any random telnet client? You have the information you need to do that. If nothing else you can get the IP address and someone can manually chase down who's connecting in. Block rogue connections at the firewall. I mean, at this point you're going around in circles and the detail you're providing is irrelevant to the task. What still needs to be resolved? You're right. It doesn't matter what client program is being used as long as they come in via the standard telnet port and we don't care what time of night someone is connecting in.
