Using telnet to Connect to a Remote Server

bible:~ # telnet bible Trying 192.168.0.1... Connected to bible. Escape character is ,A]'.

Welcome to SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (i586) - Kernel 2.6.5-97-default bible login:

Once connected to the server, you are prompted to log in to the system as you would on your local system.

To force a disconnect from the remote machine, you can use the Ctrl+] (Control and right square bracket) key combination. This drops you to the telnet prompt. From this prompt, you can open another connection to a server using open servername or quit telnet by issuing the quit command. For more information about what you can do in the telnet prompt, type help and press Return.
