I can not connect via Telnet.
If the Telnet connection can be established not, you sure at first whether the bot is started. Check the "process status", in the eggdrop details under "Process control".
If of the eggdrop is not running, start it and try again to establish the connection.
The eggdrop should already be started, please check your firewall settings, it is possible that these connect via Telnet blocked.
Are you sure that the connection is not disrupted by your firewall, it is possible that it is a bug in eggdrop software. We have observed so far very rare and could find no solution.
In all cases, helped only a reset.
