notes: From the Telnet prompt, we have to provide the IP address of the
Server to connect to, and if it is the current or local machine, then
127.0.0.1 will work. So we type
'open 127.0.0.1' followed by space and then '4242'. With the QM
database, our communications are usually set to use port 4242, and therefore
it is necessary to provide this port number with the telnet 'open'
