3. Components > Telnet

Name

Telnet — \windows\system32\telnet.exe

Synopsis

Telnet is used to connect to a remote computer. A Telnet session works very much like a command prompt window, except that commands entered are executed on the remote machine. What you do in Telnet depends on the platform of the remote machine; for example, if connecting to a Unix host, you'll get a standard terminal window. If you connect to a Windows host, you'll get a DOS command-prompt window.

If you launch Telnet without any options, you'll get a prompt, at which you can type commands such as open server_name to initiate a connection or quit to end the session. To launch Telnet and connect automatically, type telnet server_name [port] or telnet:// server_name : port.
