I believe you're talking about the node MrBenn:

If so,
% telnet 9001

It just times out. You (or your ISP, but probably you) are firewalling
incoming connections on this port.

Perhaps you're running a Windows firewall that lets things work for a
little while and then locks them down again?

(Another option is that your Tor process isn't running anymore, and the
default Windows behavior is to just time out for a port where no process
is listening.)
