Telnet and Internet Explorer

I have had a couple of people contact me about this issue recently. Microsoft in their wisdom have decided that Internet Explorer 7 and 8 will not support the telnet protocol. If you are using IE7 or IE8 the chances are you will not be able to connect to the cluster using the links at the side. You may get a message saying that your browser cannot find the page. If you get this, use another browser such as Firefox or Google Chrome. You can get these and many more useful tools at

Please be aware that Vista does not natively support telnet either. However, you can add a telnet client such as putty which is very good.
