telnet supports the original DARPA telnet interactive communication
protocol.  As connecting to a telnetd server transmits your password
over the network in cleartext, telnet's use as a login protocol has
been mostly superceded by the use of ssh and sshd.  However, the
telnet client is still a very handy tool, and telnetd may still have
some uses on networks that are known to be secure.
telnet and telnetd were ported from BSD.
