I'm trying to understand how to use Telnet. Seems Win ME has a
Telnet file but nothing happens when I try to use it except a small window comes up
that looks like a DOS thing. But when I enter anything into it, it says.....
"cannot find server". Google responds to requests for info by giving me
sites that want to sell me a Telnet Server. Do I need to have one of
those ? Are there free ones ? Any tutorials on this website about Telnet ?
The TELetype NETwork protocol is basically dead from a security perspective. Most people these days deploy SSHD or Console.
I would recommend not setting up telnet on any of your systems, however they do have free telnet servers such as "KpyM ", "Poor Woman's Telnet Server" or running "Cygwin".
There isn't much to know about telnet itself other then setting it up which I again recommend you don't do on any machine with an internet connection. The information you're probably looking for is more DOS or Shell (command line) based when it comes to controlling your computer through a Telnet/SSH connection.
