    basically you use *nix commands. depends on what type of server you're going to telnet to.
    cd
    mkdir
    rmdir
    ls
    ls -la
    pwd

    are a few common ones. to see a description type man before the command you want info on

    I think you should understand that telnet is just a protocol to allow you to communicate with a remote pc/device, and not a very secure one at that. The commands vary from device to device, depending on the operating system its running, but as faust said - use "man" (stands for manual), or "help" sometimes works.

    Post about telnet

    telnet have only this commands

    open host port_nr

    all the other commands depends from the platform that you are connected

    you have to learn UNIX and DOS because in most of servers when you get connected to port 23 you have to use UNIX or DOS commands

    some commands are

    cd (change directory )
    md (make directory )
    attrib (attributes of a file )
    ls (list files in a folder)
    dir (show files in a folder)
    del (delete file specified)
    erase (erase files)
    copy (copy files)
    xcopy (copy files and subfolders)
    copy con (from console to a file )

    if you get connected to port 25 (smtp)

    mail from ........
    mail to : ..........
    data (to enter data)

    etc ...................

    i hope this help ---------^^^

    I am starting from the bottom.I have some knowledge of DOS, but I have very little knowledge of UNIX ect..... and Telnet would be a good place to start. I am not trying to hack into the DMV or my school or something like that, I have a thirist for knowledge and I am trying to quench it.
    Thanks for your help

    The best thing to do if you want to learn telnet commands is to install Linux or BSD on an old computer. The problem with many shell accounts (the account you telnet into) are very restricted and so you really can't learn more than the very basics. Get your own PC with Linux or BSD running on it and you can do all kinds of things.
