A> telnet localhost will telnet you to the host your on now (at leat
that's how it is with linux), so telling a computer to telnet localhost
loops right back to itself.
B> try telnet (ip addy of first computer). That should work unless you've
got only on ip for both machines.
C> if you've got a dedicated ip (as with most schools), go to smewhere
like and get an address from thm if it's too hard to remember the ip.
D> make sure your networking stuff is set up right.
