Telnet provides terminal access to hosts using TCP/IP. To use this connection method, you must have a Windows Sockets compliant TCP/IP protocol installed on your personal computer.

Supported Telnet Options

  • Suppress Go Ahead (RFC 858): Does not send Go Ahead signals, and ignores received ones. Does let the remote system negotiate whichever state of Go Ahead it wants.

  • Echo (RFC 857): Does not echo network traffic back to the remote host.

  • Terminal type (RFC 1091): Attempts to negotiate terminal type. Terminal type negotiation might not be supported by the host.

  • Window size (RFC 1073): Reports the actual size (80x24 or 132x24) in VT modes.
