Blunder #9: Ending a Telnet session

How do you end a Telnet session? Not by using ENDTCP *IMMED. Unfortunately, this user found out the hard way.

An anonymous user writes:

I had this RPG/400 developer working for me, who after using Telnet for the first time to connect to one AS/400 from another became stumped by how to end his Telnet session. After looking up various TCP/IP commands on the system, he plumped for ENDTCP *IMMED. Every single user on the system was instantly kicked off! He never quite lived that one down!

Where do you want to go next?
