TELNET (TELecommunication NETwork) is a network protocol used on the Internet or local area network (LAN) connections. It was developed in late 60s with RFC 15. Telnet is pretty old for login into remote system and it has serious security problem. Most admins will recommend using Open SSH (secure shell) for all remote activities.

So what do you do when users demands telnet?
