    ervers send information. Clients retrieve. Simple.
    Windows comes with a built in program to connect to other computers called telnet.
    To start Windows telnet Start menu> Run> type Telnet. Click connect> remote system
    Ports are doors into computers. Hosts are computer names
    (ip number or a name that is translated into the ip automatically)
    Different programs open different ports, but they always open the same ports so other computers know which port to connect to. You can get a port list listing all the different ports, but a basic one is:
    11 :- Sends info on the computer
    21 :- FTP (File transfer program)
    23 :- Telnet (Login to the computers command line)
    25 :- Smtp (Sends mail)
    80 :- Http (Web pages)
    There are thousands of different programs using different ports. You can get programs called portscanners which check a computer for all ports up to a certain number, looking for ways in. You can portscan a computer looking for ways-in.
    Anyway, back to telnet.
    Type as the host and port as 80 the clic...le on the server at / (try /index.html) etc.)

    This doesn't seem to be his own article. while copy & paste, he missed the 's' in the servers.

    That is the reason it did not qualify as articles.
