The Telnet command is a useful command. It is similar to the Rlogin, as it allows the user to access a host. However, Telnet requires you to enter your user name and password, whereas Rlogin does not. To use your user name and password, you must have login on the specified host. If you do not have login on the host, you can either Porthack it, or you can use GUEST as the user name.
