Had :2300 in the setup...but :23 kept answering/disconnecting on her end.
it appears, from what's been written here, that your terminal, whatever it is/was, wasn't attempting to connect to the remote system's port 2300 for some reason... it appears that it was using the default port 23 instead... different
terminals (and virtual modems if using such for old DOS programs) have different ways of specifying the destination port to connect to... quite many of them do not use the defacto standard of today where you tack a colon and the
port on to the end of the domain address... some use another character in place of the colon... some use an AT command to change the destination port... it depends on the implementation...
if you provide a little more detail on what terminal and possible virtual modem
setup you used, i'm sure that someone will provide a pointer on how to connect
to a non-standard port...
