Telnet (Protocol, Client)

Map Of Internet 1973


TELNET (TELetype NETwork) is a net client used on the Internet or local area network LAN connections. It was developed in 1969.

By extension, “telnet” also refers to the program that provides the client part of the protocol. TELNET clients have been available on most Unix systems for many years and are available for virtually all platforms.

Most network equipment and OSs with a TCP/IP stack support some kind of Telnet service server for their remote configuration (including ones based on Windows NT). However, with recent advancements SSH has become more dominant in remote access for Unix-based machines.
