Downloading a telnet program



A telnet program allows you to connect to another server using a terminal window. This is most often used with a BBS or online game. The following telnet programs are available for downloading.



Note: Windows 95/98 systems have a built in telnet program you can use. Although it is of fairly poor quality compared to others you can download, it will do in a pinch. To use it you go to the Start menu, then choose Run, and enter telnet SERVERNAME with SERVERNAME being the address of the server you want to telnet to (to connect to the Quad-Cities OnlineŽ server, for example, you would enter telnet qconline.com).



IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with any of these downloads you should read the file download how to for information on what you need to do when downloading and installing files from the web.



Many of these downloads are available courtesy of Tucows.
