For anyone doing the Web Application course who is using Windows were you able to successfully connect to the servers using telnet? I installed telnet and then tried to connect within the telnet window using:
and I get a message saying "connecting to www.udacity.com..." which stays there forever.
If I try other port numbers (or no port number at all) I get error messages saying that I can't connnect.
Also I can't run telnet from the command prompt as windows won't recognise the telnet command. Is this something to do with my environmental variables?
