Joel, how do you move onto the next line after the second command on Windows? (I'm using workspaces).

Hi Benny Ogidan,

Looks like telnet is working, but you're getting a message "Bad Request" back. You're sending the request:

GET /get?

The server is expecting a querystring to follow after that "?" at the end. Try sending something like

GET /get?company=Treehouse&city=Portland HTTP/1.1
Host: httpbin.org

(Be sure to follow up with the second line as Chris describes in the course.)

Hope that helps!
