    telnet hostname_or_ip optional_port[enter]

    The executable has to be on the host and either in the PATH enviroment or you'll have to give the full path of the executable..

    The host will be able to see the process

    hope that helps..

    You need to have a telnet daemon running on the machine that you're telnetting to.

    Also, note that telnet sends your username and password in clear text. You might want to look into using SSH instead if this is over the internet. SSH allows you to start a remote terminal session while using encryption.
