    NEVER use telnet.... it is completely insecure. Instead use SSH. You
    may need to open your firewall (TCP port 22) and if you are stuck in
    windows for your client you'll need an SSH client (Putty is the
    most-popuar, and it's open-source, and of course free and trivial to
    install) but otherwise it is the only way you should do this type of
    thing. 'telnet' is a huge security hole.

    Good luck.

    Not sure what you are trying to do.
    Is openSUSE 10.3 running on the client, the server, or both?
    If not both, what is running on the other machine?
    What kind of service do you want to connect to on the server?
    Why do you want or have to use the obsolete and insecure Telnet protocol?
    What is between your client and your server - just a direct Ethernet
    LAN connection, some sort of firewall, or perhaps a long distance or
    Internet connection?

    T.
