    i think it was rangersfan or techtalk who recommended to me http://www.vandyke.com/products/crt/index.html i used the trial but couldn't see it being better than the free telnet that came with win 98 SE... especially at US$39 - rather save it and buy another 3 domain names

      I'd *highly* recommend CRT for Telnet access and SecureCRT for SSH access as well.... it's the best thing out there and the cost is very reasonable as well.

          question... can SecureCRT be used just for normal telnet ?

            It is MUCH better than that garbage that comes with windows!

              Yes... SecureCRT includes Telnet, Serial, rlogin, TAPI, SSH1 and SSH2 protocols.

                  well i can't see anything different...

                  i have Win 98 SE telnet and my windows 98 SE set to a grey app background and the blinking cursor is off... so it's much like any other windows app for me..

                  i do the exact same thing in win 98 telnet as i do in the trial version of CRT telnet and it ain't any different. not worth the US$39... but SecureCRT maybe at US$99 for the added features...

                  so i need to install SSH or whatever right ? does that disable telnet altogether ?

                    Yes you can install and use SSH, but it doesn't do anything to Telnet. SSH runs over port 22 while telnet uses port 23.

                    But, the point of having SSH is to have a secure connection, so most people (including me) will just use SSH and completely disable remote telnet access for security reasons. Works for me

                      so if i disabled telnet after installing SSH does this mean that if i hosted someone's site on my server, they also must use a telnet SSH capable client app ?

                        CRT is by far the best. I used easy term for a while because it was so simple and free.....but if your going for features and security, pick up CRT or SecureCRT

                          Well a couple of things.... if you can either totally disable telnet access by turning off the services, or you can disable "root" access by telnet, but still allow normal users to telnet into your machine. However, I NEVER allow anyone to telnet into my machine, even as a regular user. I just set up an FTP only account that limits them to their own home directory structure.

                            I just go to START > RUN > TELNET - simple and DOS-like...no problem. I might get around to using something else at some point, but right now I'm happy with it. I only use it for MySQL administration really...

                              Idiot Alert!!!!

                              I often see people saying that they need Telnet access. For what purpose do you need it? I'm sure I'm missing out on something fun, and that's not fair. Seriously though, what's it for?

                              BTW, the idiot I'm referring to is me.
