Ubuntu – How to install a telnet client

clientsoftware installationtelnet

How can we install a telnet client in Ubuntu 16.04? With this command, we can install a telnet server:

sudo apt-get install xinetd telnetd

But can a telnet client be installed without a telnet server? A telnet server can be dangerous.

Best Answer

You shouldn't need to install any packages; a telnet client should come standard with Ubuntu. Just open a terminal window (Alt + Ctrl + T) and use the telnet command (for help, type man telnet)
