What problem are you having?

Telnet Client is not restored after Services for UNIX is uninstalled.

Cause:  Setup attempted to restore the original Telnet files but failed.

Solution:  Restore the Telnet files from the Windows CD. For example, here are the commands you would use to restore the required files if C:\WINDOWS is the system folder, and D is the source CD:

C:\>copy D:\I386\telnet.exe C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

C:\>expand -r D:\I386\tlntsvr.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

C:\>expand -r D:\I386\tlntsvrp.dl_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

C:\>expand -r D:\I386\tlntsess.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

Characters and lines on the Telnet Client display are misaligned when connecting to the computer running Telnet Server.

Cause:  This problem can be caused by a mismatch between the size of the Telnet Client window and the maximum size of the command window that Telnet Server can support.

Solution:  Try reducing the size of the Telnet Client window before reconnecting.
