Cannot connect to telnet

Hi!

I am trying to connect via telnet. I have specified the IP addres and the port number.

telnet.connect(<ipaddress>, <portNumber>);

But I get

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect

But I can connect using putty using the same ip address and port.

How can I troubleshoot the java connection refused error?

Thanks

Putty can be used for both SSH and Telnet. Are you trying to telnet to the SSH port?
