telnet: basic telnet client

 The telnet command is used for interactive communication with another host
 using the TELNET protocol.
 For the purpose of remote login, the present client executable should be
 depreciated in favour of an ssh-client, or in some cases with variants like
 telnet-ssl or Kerberized TELNET clients. The most important reason is that
 this implementation exchanges user name and password in clear text.
 On the other hand, the present program does satisfy common use cases of
 network diagnostics, like protocol testing of SMTP services, so it can
 become handy enough.

telnetd: basic telnet server

 The in.telnetd program is a server which supports the DARPA telnet interactive
 communication protocol.
 This legacy server should in general be abandoned in favour of a contemporary
 ssh-server, as this implementation only is able to process password and user
 name in clear text. Other variants, like telnetd-ssl and a selection of
 Kerberized TELNET servers, are able to improve on this by providing secure
 forms of authentication and encryption.
