When you typed in telnet localhost 4000 on computer #2, it was trying to find port 4000 on Computer #2.  You
don't want that since the MUD is running on computer #2, but rather computer #1.  Find out what IP address you
have on computer #1, then from computer #2, type telnet <Computer #1 IP Address (i.e.> 4000
