Can you telnet from Adtran 908 to a url and specifi port

Hi Guys,

I am new to adtran and have learned alot from the documents as i take over this role for my company. Looking to get the command as i am not able to find in the documents, for telneting from a Access 908 to an outbound url and pointing it to a specific port.

so i have a url that my SIP provider gave me and i want to verify that i can reach it. They advised that i can do a telnet from my edge device as so:

telnet gateway1.hosted.carriername.com 447 (447 is the port that is opened for this test). I try and get the following error:

% Unrecognized command

or if i put the command as telnet gateway1.hosted.carriername.com:447 i get:

Invalid IP or web address.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Brian

Re: Can you telnet from Adtran 908 to a url and specifi port

Hi:

The telnet command would be: "telnet google.com port 80" or in your case "telnet gateway1.hosted.carriername.com port 447". Please see below for explanation:

router#telnet ?

vrf                    - Open a telnet connection on a specified VRF

WORD                   - Telnet destination address (A.B.C.D) or hostname

router#telnet google.com ?

<cr>

port                   - TCP port

router#telnet google.com port ?

<1-65535>              - Configure an alternate port for this telnet session

router#telnet google.com port 80

Trying google.com...Press Ctrl+C to abort


% Connection Established

Thanks!

Be sure you have a DNS entry in your config that is reachable to resolute the name.
