When you are using the Telnet services under the Terminal application in Windows NT, if you type any arbitrary sequence of white characters and then press ENTER, you may receive the following error message:
Note: The address may be different, but the Access violation code should be the same
This message stops the Telnet service. If you attempt to restart the service from the Control Panel Services application, your machine may hang. The results of attempting to restart the Telnet service are random. To successfully restart the Telnet service, shut down and restart Windows NT.
The Telnet service was not parsing input characters properly.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.1 and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. This problem was corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1.
