I don't see how that's technically possible. Telnet forms a TCP
connection. The server can't know it's not a TDS client because it sends
no data until you type something.
Are you saying that:
$ TDSVER=7.0 tsql -H $H -p $port -U $U -P $P
$ telnet $H $port
If some combination of server and telnet don't work when they should, we'd
need to understand and document that.
