    That message means that the system can't reach that IP. If telnet was down you would get "Connection Refuse". Can you telnet to localhost from the FC3 machine?

    I second this question. If this machine is EVER going to be ANYWHERE near the internet... use SSH and disable telnet IMMEDIATELY.

    Anyway to answer YOUR question, that error means that your route between the machine you're trying to telnet FROM to 192.168.1.201 doesn't exist. IE the machine you're on doesn't know how to contact that IP address.
