Server A & B On both the servers I have enabled telnet client. There is no application running on them. When I try to telnet port 389 it does not connect. These are datacenter edition trials. not core editions. Windows firewall is disabled and even its service. I am unable to telnet port 389 from Server A to B and vice versa Will telnet only go through if there is an application which is using port 389 or if there is no application installed then too port 389 should connect (as the ports are open) ? Thanks joeqwertyModerator December 17, 2017 at 7:38 pm #304613 If there’s no process or service listening on that port then telnet can’t connect to that port.
