Looks like you are opening a TELNET session and not a gopher session.
Most gophers require that you have a gopher client installed
on your own machine and you would then give the command
and that would take you into the menu. There is no need to subscribe.
Such a command does not exist in gopher space. There are a few public
access gophers where you can open a telnet session to a host
and login as gopher. If I remember correctly there is a list of them
in the gopher FAQ.
