I have verified the connection from the client using the cwbping utility.
Everything, including Telnet, verifies. I have connected to our system from
the client using Telnet from within the DOS command window; I get a signon
They can run the Data Transfer process. The only difference (port-wise) is
that it uses the database port (8471) rather than the telnet port (23).
I re-booted the PC; still no love.
I asked the network guy to check out the firewall and anything else he could
think of. He'll get around to it when he can - whatever that means.

Subject: RE: Remote Site Cannot Connect
Have you run a NETSTAT *CNN to see if the remote site is connecting? If you
see the telnet connection but they never get a sign on screen, it is on the
client side or the network in between. If the telnet connections never
hits, then it is one of the other servers that they are not reaching. Have
you verified your connection settings as far as when to look up the IP
address and/or port?
