PuTTY after startup, colorized

The screenshot above shows the startup window for PuTTY. To help you navigate, we have colored what you need to focus on:

  1. Light red/pink: Type "" here.
  2. Make sure you click "Telnet" under "Protocol".
  3. Light blue/cyan: Replace "23" with "2001".
  4. Light green: Type "Viking MUD" here.
  5. Yellow: Click this button to save the settings.

If you have completed these tasks successfully, and clicked once on "Viking MUD" in the box to the left of the "Load", "Save" and "Delete" buttons, then your PuTTY window should look like this:
