In general, Telnet is one of the network protocol that allows a user on the one system or computer to login into another computer remotely. The Telnet Command allow the user to communicate with a remote computer that’s using the Telnet protocol. We can run telnet without parameters in order to enter the telnet context, indicated by the Telnet prompt (telnet>).

The tlntadmn command allows you to remotely manage a computer running a Telnet Server. These Telnet Command can be run from the command prompt. When these commands are used without parameters, tlntadmn displays local server settings.

The telnet is nothing but the short form of the word “terminal network”, it is a network protocol used to provide a command line interface for communicating one device with other devices. The Telnet Command is used mostly for remote management but also sometimes for the initial setup for some devices, especially network hardware devices. Also, telnet is an underlying command for the TCP/IP in remote computers. The telnet is the protocol that it is used to connect the remote computers (called hosts) over the TCP/ IP network. We connect the telnet server by using the telnet client software.

Once a connection has been made successfully, the telnet will start attempt to enable the TELNET LINEMODE option. If this has failed, then telnet will reply to one of two input modes, that’s either a “character at a time” or “old line by line” depending on what the remote system has been getting supported.

When the LINEMODE is enabled, the character processing is done on the local system, under the control of the remote system. When the input editing or character echoing is to be disabled, the remote system will relay that information. The remote system will also relay the changes to any special characters that happen on the remote system so that they can take the effect on the local system.

In the “character at a time” mode, most text typed is immediately sent to the remote host for the processing. In an “old line by line” mode, all the text is echoed locally, and only the completed lines are sent to the remote host. Then the “local echo character” may be used to turn off and on the local echo (this has mostly be used to enter the passwords without the password it being echoed).

If the LINEMODE option is enabled, or if the localchars toggle is TRUE, the user’s intr, flush and quit characters are trapped locally and sent as TELNET protocol sequences to the remote side. If the LINEMODE has ever been enabled, then the user’s susp and eof are also sent as TELNET protocol sequences, and the quit is sent as a TELNET ABORT instead of BREAK. There are options which cause this action to flush subsequent output to the terminal and flush previous terminal input (in the case of intr and quit).
