Do yourself a favor and don't ever use telnet.

Install/setup SSH on your server/client and use that instead. Information about SSH can be found at http://www.openssh.org and http://www.ssh.com.

There's also an SSH guide or two in our Guides Page at http://www.linuxhelp.ca/guides/

i had a bunch more stuff wrote here, but joey posted quicker then me


To log into a linux box remotely , you use the command: "ssh -l username 192.168.0.5" as an example. If you want to connect to your linux box from a Windows machine, then I would recommend getting the program Putty, just do a search on google for "putty download" and it should be the first match.
