```hmm... that's quirky...

Since you were doing it like that, this part is easy then.  Just log the
connection to see what's happening.

Open the command prompt, get into telnet, and type this:

set logfile c:\logfile.txt

You should then see

"Log file : c:\logfile.txt
Client logging on"

Try connecting again with the
open 66.xxxx.xxx.xxx 5900

and even if it immediately dumps you out, you will still get the output saved to
c:\logfile.txt.  Look for that file when it is done and see what you show.
