    Telnet is a relic of Unix and is used to login to other computers. Typically you do

    telnet xxx.yyy.zzz..

    and get a reply like "System xx, release xx"

    Then you enter a login ID and password and you are at a unix command prompt or wherever the login script on the other computer directs you.

    Kind of old hat these days.
