Re: [vox-tech] Telnetting to port 80 when you don't run telnet on the server



Sorry, I suffer from not giving enough info.  My web server, sits on my
woody box.  My woody box does not have telnetd installed.  From my client
machine I'd like to:

telnet www.mydomain.com 80
GET index.html

But can't do it (because I don't run telnetd).  Is there some workaround?  I
can ssh to the host running the web server (could I do some sort of internal
request??)
