Windows Server 2003 Telnet Service

    We have a Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition, SP1 and all patches plus the
    W2K3 Server Resource Kit applied. It is set up to be a telnet server for RF
    Guns to access a Command Line application. We have the users that need
    access added into the TelnetClient group on the server.

    The following are the Telnet server settings on the server:
    Alt Key Mapped to 'CTRL+A' : YES
    Idle session timeout : 1 hours
    Max connections : 50
    Telnet port : 23
    Max failed login attempts : 10
    End tasks on disconnect : YES
    Mode of Operation : Console
    Authentication Mechanism : Password
    Default Domain : TST
    State : Running

    The server will work fine for a while, then it will not allow anyone to log
    in if they are not a member of the administrators group. If we restart the
    telnet service, users can log in again. It will work for a while, then stop
    allowing logins again. Once the problem starts, only restarting the service
    or rebooting the server will allow non-administrators to log in again.

    We think this is a permissions problem, but we can't see why it will work
    sometimes and not others. Any ideas appreciated...

  2. You could start reading this kb article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326638/en-us

    If it doesn't work, there are a pair of hotfixes available for the telnet
    service in w2k3. Read the following kb articles:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902439/en-us
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/837702/en-us

    Hope one of these can help you.

    Regards,
