To install telnet on a Linux system, you can use the package manager that comes with your distribution.


Here are the steps to install telnet on a few popular Linux distributions:


On Debian/Ubuntu:

  1. Open a terminal window and run the following command:
1
sudo apt-get update


This command updates the package index and ensures that you have the latest version of the package manager.

  1. Run the following command to install telnet:
1
sudo apt-get install telnetd


This will install the telnet server package, which includes the telnet client as well.


On CentOS/Red Hat:

  1. Open a terminal window and run the following command:
1
sudo yum update


This command updates the package index and ensures that you have the latest version of the package manager.

  1. Run the following command to install telnet:
1
sudo yum install telnet


On Fedora:

  1. Open a terminal window and run the following command:
1
sudo dnf update


This command updates the package index and ensures that you have the latest version of the package manager.

  1. Run the following command to install telnet:
1
sudo dnf install telnet


Once the installation is complete, you can use the telnet command to connect to a remote server. For example, to connect to a server at IP address 192.168.1.100, you can run the following command:

1
telnet 192.168.1.100


You will be prompted to enter a username and password for the server. If the connection is successful, you will be logged in to the remote server and will be able to run commands on it.

To install Telnet on a Linux system, you will need to use a package manager such as apt or yum.

  1. Open a terminal window and update the package manager's package list by typing:
1
sudo apt update


  1. Next, install Telnet by typing:
1
sudo apt install telnet


  1. Press 'Y' when prompted to confirm the installation.
  2. Telnet should now be installed on your system. You can verify the installation by typing:
1
telnet


This will open the Telnet client. To exit, type quit or press CTRL+] and then type quit.


Note: Telnet has been deprecated and is not considered a secure protocol. It is recommended to use secure alternatives such as SSH (Secure Shell) for remote access and management.
