Slide 1

Slide notes: In this tutorial, we show how to find or open Telnet. For Systems Administration purposes, we may from time to time have to use a Telnet session, or the System Help or a Tutorial may advise that we use a Telnet or Console Session to perform some action. A Telnet Session or a Console Session may be used to work with the QM Database at the Command Level.

Slide 22

Slide notes: This also opens a Telnet prompt.




Slide 23

Slide 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 will work. So we type  'open' 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' instruction.




Slide 24

Slide notes: If the QM Database Service is up and running on the IP address as specified, then we will get a prompt like this, where we can now log on. From here, how to log on and proceed further, is discussed in the next tutorial on Telnet.
