Definition Edit

Telnet (also spelled TELNET) (an acronym for Teletype Network) is an Internet Protocol application that enables a user on one Internet-connected system to log into[1] and search another system. Once a connection is established with the remote computer, the user can search that remote system as if their computer was a hard-wired terminal of that remote computer. Telnet uses port 23 by default.
