Can you access the regular MySQL client using
mysql -u myname -h hostname -p?
Your hostname might be wrong. Sometimes when you are telnetting into a server to access MySQL, you still need to use a hostname of 'localhost' to access mysql.

I use telnet often to access mysql so it should be no problem.
i do not first have to access mysql and then ask for a dump?
