telnet(1)                        User Commands                       telnet(1)



NAME
       telnet - user interface to a remote system using the TELNET protocol

SYNOPSIS
       telnet  [-8EFKLacdfrx] [-X atype] [-e escape_char] [-k realm] [-l user]
       [-n file] [ [ [!] @hop1 [ @hop2...] @] host [port]]

DESCRIPTION
       The telnet utility communicates with another host using the TELNET pro-
       tocol.  If telnet is invoked without arguments, it enters command mode,
       indicated by its prompt, telnet>>. In this mode, it accepts and executes
       its  associated  commands.  See USAGE, telnet Commands, below. If it is
       invoked with arguments, it performs an open command  with  those  argu-
       ments.

       If, for example, a host is specified as @hop1@hop2@host, the connection
       goes through hosts hop1 and hop2, using loose source routing to end  at
       host.  If  a  leading  !  is used, the connection follows strict source
       routing. Note that when telnet uses IPv6, it can only use loose  source
       routing, and the connection ignores the !.

       Once  a  connection  has been opened, telnet enters input mode. In this
       mode, text typed is sent to the remote host.  The  input  mode  entered
       will  be  either  "line  mode",  "character at a time", or "old line by
       line", depending upon what the remote system supports.

       In "line mode", character processing is done on the local system, under
       the control of the remote system. When input editing or character echo-
       ing is to be disabled, the remote system will relay  that  information.
       The  remote  system  will  also relay changes to any special characters
       that happen on the remote system, so that they can take effect  on  the
       local system.

       In  "character  at a time" mode, most text typed is immediately sent to
       the remote host for processing.

       In "old line by line" mode, all text is echoed locally, and  (normally)
       only completed lines are sent to the remote host. The "local echo char-
       acter" (initially  ^E) may be used to turn off and on the  local  echo.
       (Use  this  mostly  to  enter  passwords  without  the  password  being
       echoed.).

       If the "line mode" option is enabled, or if the  localchars  toggle  is
       TRUE  (the  default in "old line by line" mode), the user's quit, intr,
       and flush characters are trapped locally, and sent as  TELNET  protocol
       sequences  to  the  remote  side. If "line mode" has ever been enabled,
       then the  user's  susp  and  eof  are  also  sent  as  TELNET  protocol
       sequences.  quit  is  then sent as a TELNET ABORT instead of BREAK. The
       options toggle autoflush and toggle  autosynch  cause  this  action  to
       flush subsequent output to the terminal (until the remote host acknowl-
       edges the TELNET sequence); and to flush previous  terminal  input,  in
       the case of quit and intr.

       While  connected  to  a  remote host, the user can enter telnet command
       mode by typing the telnet escape character (initially ^]). When in com-
       mand  mode,  the  normal  terminal  editing  conventions are available.
       Pressing <&lt;RETURN>&gt; at the telnet command prompt causes  telnet  to  exit
       command mode.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -8              Specifies  an  8-bit  data path. Negotiating the TELNET
                       BINARY option is attempted for both input and output.



       -a              Attempts automatic login. This sends the user  name  by
                       means  of  the  USER variable of the ENVIRON option, if
                       supported by the remote system. The name used  is  that
                       of  the  current user as returned by getlogin(3C) if it
                       agrees with the current user ID.  Otherwise, it is  the
                       name associated with the user ID.



       -c              Disables  the reading of the user's telnetrc file. (See
                       the toggle skiprc command on this reference page.)



       -d              Sets the initial value of the debug toggle to TRUE.



       -e escape_char  Sets  the  initial  escape  character  to  escape_char.
                       escape_char  may  also be a two character sequence con-
                       sisting of '^' followed by one character. If the second
                       character is '?', the DEL character is selected. Other-
                       wise, the second character is converted  to  a  control
                       character  and  used  as  the  escape character. If the
                       escape character is the null string (that is,  -e  ''),
                       it is disabled.



       -E              Stops  any character from being recognized as an escape
                       character.



       -f              Forwards a copy of the local credentials to the  remote
                       system.



       -F              Forwards a forwardable copy of the local credentials to
                       the remote system.



       -k realm        If Kerberos authentication is being used, requests that
                       telnet  obtain  tickets  for  the  remote host in realm
                       instead of the remote host's default  realm  as  deter-
                       mined inkrb5.conf(4).



       -K              Specifies no automatic login to the remote system.



       -l user         When connecting to a remote system that understands the
                       ENVIRON option, then user will be sent  to  the  remote
                       system as the value for the ENVIRON variable USER.



       -L              Specifies an 8-bit data path on output. This causes the
                       BINARY option to be negotiated on output.



       -n tracefile    Opens tracefile for recording  trace  information.  See
                       the set tracefile command below.



       -r              Specifies  a  user interface similar to rlogin. In this
                       mode, the escape character is  set  to  the  tilde  (~)
                       character,  unless  modified  by  the  -e  option.  The
                       rlogin escape character is only recognized when  it  is
                       preceded  by a carriage return. In this mode, the  tel-
                       net escape character, normally '^]', must still precede
                       a   telnet  command.  The   rlogin escape character can
                       also be followed by '.\r' or '^Z', and, like rlogin(1),
                       closes  or  suspends the connection, respectively. This
                       option is an uncommitted interface and  may  change  in
                       the future.



       -x              Turns  on  encryption  of  the  data  stream. When this
                       option is turned on, telnet will exit with an error  if
                       authentication  cannot  be  negotiated or if encryption
                       cannot be turned on.



       -X atype        Disables the atype type of authentication.




USAGE
   telnet Commands
       The commands described in this section are available with telnet. It is
       necessary  to type only enough of each command to uniquely identify it.
       (This is also true for arguments to the mode, set, toggle, unset, envi-
       ron, and display commands.)

       auth argument ...

           The auth command manipulates the information sent through  the TEL-
           NET AUTHENTICATE option. Valid arguments for the auth  command  are
           as follows:


           disable type    Disables  the  specified type of authentication. To
                           obtain a list of available types, use the auth dis-
                           able ? command.




           enable type     Enables  the  specified  type of authentication. To
                           obtain a list of  available  types,  use  the  auth
                           enable ? command.



           status          Lists  the  current  status of the various types of
                           authentication.



       open [ -l user ] [ [!] @hop1 [@hop2 ...]@host [ port ]

           Open a connection to the named host. If no port  number  is  speci-
           fied, telnet will attempt to contact a TELNET server at the default
           port. The host  specification  may  be  either  a  host  name  (see
           hosts(4),  ipnodes(4)) or an Internet address specified in the "dot
           notation" (see inet( 7P) or inet6( 7P)). If the host  is  specified
           as  @hop1@hop2@host,  the  connection  goes  through hosts hop1 and
           hop2, using loose source routing to end at host. The "@" symbol  is
           required as a separator between the hosts specified. If a leading !
           is used with IPv4, the connection follows strict source routing.

           The -l option passes the user as the value of the ENVIRON  variable
           USER to the remote system.



       close

           Close  any  open TELNET session and exit telnet. An EOF (in command
           mode) will also close a session and exit.



       encrypt

           The encrypt command manipulates the information  sent  through  the
           TELNET ENCRYPT option.

           Valid arguments for the encrypt command are as follows:


           disable type [input|outpuDtisables  the specified type of encryption.
                                   If you omit  the  input  and  output,  both
                                   input and output are disabled. To  obtain a
                                   list of available types,  use  the  encrypt
                                   disable ? command.




           enable type  [input|outpuEtnables  the  specified type of encryption.
                                   If you omit input and  output,  both  input
                                   and output are enabled. To obtain a list of
                                   available types, use the encrypt  enable  ?
                                   command.



           input                   This is the same as the encrypt start input
                                   command.



           -input                  This is the same as the encrypt stop  input
                                   command.



           output                  This  is the same as the encrypt start out-
                                   put command.



           -output                 This is the same as the encrypt stop output
                                   command.



           start [input|output]    Attempts  to start encryption. If you  omit
                                   input and output, both input and output are
                                   enabled.  To  obtain  a  list  of available
                                   types, use the encrypt enable ? command.



           status                  Lists the current status of encryption.



           stop [input|output]     Stops encryption. If you  omit  input   and
                                   output,  encryption  is  on  both input and
                                   output.



           type type               Sets the default type of encryption  to  be
                                   used  with  later  encrypt start or encrypt
                                   stop commands.



       quit

           Same as close.



       z

           Suspend telnet. This command only works when the user  is  using  a
           shell that supports job control, such as sh(1).



       mode type

           The  remote  host  is asked for permission to go into the requested
           mode. If the remote host is capable  of  entering  that  mode,  the
           requested  mode  will  be  entered. The argument type is one of the
           following:

           character               Disable the TELNET LINEMODE option, or,  if
                                   the  remote  side  does  not understand the
                                   LINEMODE option, then enter "character at a
                                   time" mode.




           line                    Enable  the  TELNET LINEMODE option, or, if
                                   the remote side  does  not  understand  the
                                   LINEMODE  option,  then  attempt  to  enter
                                   "old-line-by-line" mode.



           isig (-isig)            Attempt to  enable  (disable)  the  TRAPSIG
                                   mode  of the LINEMODE option. This requires
                                   that the LINEMODE option be enabled.



           edit (-edit)            Attempt to enable (disable) the  EDIT  mode
                                   of  the LINEMODE option. This requires that
                                   the LINEMODE option be enabled.



           softtabs (-softtabs)    Attempt to enable  (disable)  the  SOFT_TAB
                                   mode  of the LINEMODE option. This requires
                                   that the LINEMODE option be enabled.



           litecho (-litecho)      Attempt to enable  (disable)  the  LIT_ECHO
                                   mode  of the LINEMODE option. This requires
                                   that the LINEMODE option be enabled.



           ?                       Prints out help information  for  the  mode
                                   command.




       status

           Show  the  current  status of telnet. This includes the peer one is
           connected to, as well as the current mode.



       display

           [ argument...] Display all, or some, of the set and  toggle  values
           (see toggle argument...).



       ?

           [command  ]  Get help. With no arguments, telnet prints a help sum-
           mary. If a command is specified, telnet will print the help  infor-
           mation for just that command.



       send argument...

           Send  one  or  more special character sequences to the remote host.
           The following are the arguments that can be  specified  (more  than
           one argument may be specified at a time):

           escape          Send the current telnet escape character (initially
                           ^]).




           synch           Send the TELNET SYNCH sequence. This sequence  dis-
                           cards all previously typed, but not yet read, input
                           on the remote system. This sequence is sent as  TCP
                           urgent  data  and may not work if the remote system
                           is a 4.2 BSD system. If it does not work,  a  lower
                           case "r" may be echoed on the terminal.



           brk or break    Send  the  TELNET  BRK  (Break) sequence, which may
                           have significance to the remote system.



           ip              Send the TELNET IP  (Interrupt  Process)  sequence,
                           which  aborts  the currently running process on the
                           remote system.



           abort           Send the TELNET ABORT (Abort Process) sequence.



           ao              Send the TELNET AO (Abort Output)  sequence,  which
                           flushes  all  output  from the remote system to the
                           user's terminal.



           ayt             Send the TELNET AYT (Are You  There)  sequence,  to
                           which the remote system may or may not respond.



           ec              Send  the  TELNET  EC  (Erase  Character) sequence,
                           which erases the last character entered.



           el              Send the TELNET EL  (Erase  Line)  sequence,  which
                           should  cause  the  remote system to erase the line
                           currently being entered.



           eof             Send the TELNET EOF (End Of File) sequence.



           eor             Send the TELNET EOR (End Of Record) sequence.



           ga              Send the TELNET GA (Go Ahead) sequence, which prob-
                           ably has no significance for the remote system.



           getstatus       If  the remote side supports the TELNET STATUS com-
                           mand, getstatus will  send  the  subnegotiation  to
                           request  that  the  server  send its current option
                           status.



           nop             Send the TELNET NOP (No Operation) sequence.



           susp            Send the TELNET SUSP (Suspend Process) sequence.



           do option       Send the TELNET protocol option  negotiation  indi-
           dont option     cated.  Option may be the text name of the protocol
           will option     option, or the number corresponding to the  option.
           wont option     The  command will be silently ignored if the option
                           negotiation indicated is not valid in  the  current
                           state. If the option is given as 'help' or '?', the
                           list of option names known is listed. This  command
                           is mostly useful for unusual debugging situations.






           ?               Print out help information for the send command.




       set argument [ value ]
       unset argument

           Set  any  one  of a number of telnet variables to a specific value.
           The special value "off" turns off the function associated with  the
           variable. The values of variables may be interrogated with the dis-
           play command. If value is omitted, the value is taken to  be  true,
           or "on". If the unset form is used, the value is taken to be false,
           or "off." The variables that may be specified are:

           echo            This is the value  (initially  ^E)  that,  when  in
                           "line  by line" mode, toggles between local echoing
                           of entered characters for  normal  processing,  and
                           suppressing  echoing  of  entered  characters,  for
                           example, entering a password.





           escape          This is the telnet escape character (initially  ^])
                           that  enters  telnet command mode when connected to
                           a remote system.



           interrupt       If  telnet  is  in  localchars  mode  (see  toggle,
                           localchars) and the interrupt character is typed, a
                           TELNET IP sequence (see send and ip) is sent to the
                           remote  host.  The  initial value for the interrupt
                           character is taken to be the terminal's intr  char-
                           acter.



           quit            If  telnet is in localchars mode and the quit char-
                           acter is typed, a TELNET BRK  sequence  (see  send,
                           brk)  is sent to the remote host. The initial value
                           for the quit character is taken to  be  the  termi-
                           nal's quit character.



           flushoutput     If telnet is in localchars mode and the flushoutput
                           character is typed, a TELNET AO sequence (see send,
                           ao)  is  sent to the remote host. The initial value
                           for the  flush character is taken to be the  termi-
                           nal's flush character.



           erase           If  telnet  is  in localchars mode and operating in
                           "character at a time" mode,  then  when  the  erase
                           character is typed, a TELNET EC sequence (see send,
                           ec) is sent to the remote system. The initial value
                           for  the  erase character is taken to be the termi-
                           nal's erase character.



           kill            If telnet is in localchars mode  and  operating  in
                           "character  at  a  time"  mode,  then when the kill
                           character is typed, a TELNET EL sequence (see send,
                           el) is sent to the remote system. The initial value
                           for the  kill character is taken to be  the  termi-
                           nal's kill character.



           eof             If  telnet  is  operating  in  "line by line" mode,
                           entering the eof character as the  first  character
                           on  a line  sends this character to the remote sys-
                           tem. The initial value of  eof is taken to  be  the
                           terminal's eof character.



           ayt             If  telnet  is  in  localchars mode, or LINEMODE is
                           enabled, and the status character is typed, a  TEL-
                           NET  AYT  ("Are You There") sequence is sent to the
                           remote host. (See send,  ayt  above.)  The  initial
                           value for ayt is the terminal's status character.



           forw1           If  telnet  is operating in LINEMODE, and the forw1
           forw2           or forw2 characters are typed, this causes the for-
                           warding  of partial lines to the remote system. The
                           initial values for the forwarding  characters  come
                           from the terminal's eol and  eol2 characters.




           lnext           If  telnet is operating in LINEMODE or "old line by
                           line" mode, then the lnext character is assumed  to
                           be  the  terminal's  lnext  character.  The initial
                           value for the  lnext character is taken to  be  the
                           terminal's lnext character.



           reprint         If  telnet is operating in LINEMODE or "old line by
                           line" mode, then the reprint character  is  assumed
                           to be the terminal's reprint character. The initial
                           value for  reprint is taken to  be  the  terminal's
                           reprint character.



           rlogin          This  is  the  rlogin escape character. If set, the
                           normal telnet escape character is  ignored,  unless
                           it  is  preceded by this character at the beginning
                           of a line. The rlogin character, at  the  beginning
                           of  a line followed by a "." closes the connection.
                           When followed by a  ^Z, the rlogin command suspends
                           the   telnet command.  The initial state is to dis-
                           able the rlogin escape character.



           start           If the TELNET TOGGLE-FLOW-CONTROL option  has  been
                           enabled,  then  the  start character is taken to be
                           the terminal's start character. The  initial  value
                           for  the   kill character is taken to be the termi-
                           nal's start character.



           stop            If the TELNET TOGGLE-FLOW-CONTROL option  has  been
                           enabled, then the stop character is taken to be the
                           terminal's stop character. The  initial  value  for
                           the  kill  character  is taken to be the terminal's
                           stop character.



           susp            If telnet is in localchars  mode,  or  LINEMODE  is
                           enabled, and the suspend character is typed, a TEL-
                           NET SUSP sequence (see send, susp above) is sent to
                           the  remote host. The initial value for the suspend
                           character is taken to  be  the  terminal's  suspend
                           character.



           tracefile       This  is  the  file  to which the output, generated
                           when the netdata or the debug option is TRUE,  will
                           be  written. If tracefile is set to "-", then trac-
                           ing information will be written to standard  output
                           (the default).



           worderase       If  telnet is operating in LINEMODE or "old line by
                           line" mode, then this character is taken to be  the
                           terminal's  worderase  character. The initial value
                           for the  worderase character is  taken  to  be  the
                           terminal's worderase character.



           ?               Displays the legal set and unset commands.




       slc state

           The slc (Set Local Characters) command is used to set or change the
           state of special characters when the  TELNET  LINEMODE  option  has
           been  enabled. Special characters are characters that get mapped to
           TELNET commands sequences (like ip or quit) or line editing charac-
           ters  (like  erase and kill). By default, the local special charac-
           ters are exported. The following values for state are valid:



           check            Verifies the  settings  for  the  current  special
                           characters.  The  remote  side is requested to send
                           all the  current  special  character  settings.  If
                           there  are  any  discrepancies with the local side,
                           the local settings will switch to the  remote  val-
                           ues.




           export          Switches  to  the  local  defaults  for the special
                           characters. The local default characters are  those
                           of  the  local terminal at the time when telnet was
                           started.



           import          Switches to the remote  defaults  for  the  special
                           characters. The remote default characters are those
                           of the remote system at the time  when  the  TELNET
                           connection was established.



           ?               Prints out help information for the slc command.




       toggle argument...

           Toggle  between  TRUE  and FALSE the various flags that control how
           telnet responds to events. More than one argument may be specified.
           The  state of these flags may be interrogated with the display com-
           mand. Valid arguments are:

           authdebug       Turns on debugging information for the  authentica-
                           tion code.




           autodecrypt     When  the  TELNET  ENCRYPT option is negotiated, by
                           default the actual encryption (decryption)  of  the
                           data  stream  does  not  start  automatically.  The
                           autoencrypt   (autodecrypt)  command  states   that
                           encryption  of  the output (input) stream should be
                           enabled as soon as possible.



           autologin       If the remote side supports the TELNET  AUTHENTICA-
                           TION  option,  telnet attempts to use it to perform
                           automatic  authentication.  If  the  AUTHENTICATION
                           option  is  not supported, the user's login name is
                           propagated through the TELNET ENVIRON option.  This
                           command  is the same as specifying the -a option on
                           the open command.



           autoflush       If autoflush and localchars  are  both  TRUE,  then
                           when  the  ao, intr, or  quit characters are recog-
                           nized (and transformed into TELNET  sequences;  see
                           set  for  details),  telnet  refuses to display any
                           data on the user's terminal until the remote system
                           acknowledges  (using  a  TELNET Timing Mark option)
                           that it has processed those TELNET  sequences.  The
                           initial value for this toggle is TRUE if the termi-
                           nal user has not done an "stty noflsh".  Otherwise,
                           the value is FALSE (see stty(1)).



           autosynch       If  autosynch  and  localchars  are both TRUE, then
                           when either the interrupt or  quit  characters  are
                           typed  (see  set  for descriptions of interrupt and
                           quit), the resulting TELNET sequence sent  is  fol-
                           lowed  by the TELNET SYNCH sequence. This procedure
                           should cause the remote system  to  begin  throwing
                           away  all  previously typed input until both of the
                           TELNET sequences have been read and acted upon. The
                           initial value of this toggle is FALSE.



           binary          Enable  or disable the TELNET BINARY option on both
                           input and output.



           inbinary        Enable or  disable  the  TELNET  BINARY  option  on
                           input.



           outbinary       Enable  or disable the TELNET BINARY option on out-
                           put.



           crlf            Determines how carriage returns are  sent.  If  the
                           value  is  TRUE, then carriage returns will be sent
                           as <&lt;CR>&gt;<&lt;LF>&gt;. If the value is FALSE,  then  carriage
                           returns  will  be  send  as  <&lt;CR>&gt;<&lt;NUL>&gt;. The initial
                           value for this toggle is FALSE.



           crmod           Toggle  <&lt;RETURN>&gt; mode. When this mode  is  enabled,
                           most  <&lt;RETURN>&gt;  characters received from the remote
                           host will be mapped into a  <&lt;RETURN>&gt; followed by  a
                           line  feed. This mode does not affect those charac-
                           ters typed by the user, only  those  received  from
                           the  remote  host.  This  mode  is  useful only for
                           remote hosts that  send  <&lt;RETURN>&gt;  but  never  send
                           <&lt;LINEFEED>&gt;.  The  initial  value for this toggle is
                           FALSE.



           debug           Toggle socket level debugging  (only  available  to
                           the  super-user). The initial value for this toggle
                           is FALSE.



           encdebug        Turns on debugging information for the   encryption
                           code.



           localchars      If  this toggle is TRUE, then the flush, interrupt,
                           quit, erase, and kill characters (see set) are rec-
                           ognized  locally,  and transformed into appropriate
                           TELNET control sequences, respectively ao, ip, brk,
                           ec,  and  el (see send). The initial value for this
                           toggle is TRUE in "line by line" mode, and FALSE in
                           "character  at  a  time"  mode.  When  the LINEMODE
                           option is  enabled,  the  value  of  localchars  is
                           ignored, and assumed always to be TRUE. If LINEMODE
                           has ever been enabled, then quit is sent as  abort,
                           and  eof  and suspend are sent as eof and susp (see
                           send above).



           netdata         Toggle the display of all network data (in hexadec-
                           imal  format). The initial value for this toggle is
                           FALSE.



           options         Toggle the display of some internal TELNET protocol
                           processing  (having to do with telnet options). The
                           initial value for this toggle is FALSE.



           prettydump      When the netdata toggle is enabled,  if  prettydump
                           is  enabled,  the  output  from the netdata command
                           will be formatted in a more user  readable  format.
                           Spaces  are  put between each character in the out-
                           put.  The beginning of any TELNET  escape  sequence

                           them.



           skiprc          When the  skiprc toggle is TRUE, TELNET  skips  the
                           reading  of  the  .telnetrc file in the user's home
                           directory when connections are opened. The  initial
                           value for this toggle is FALSE.



           termdata        Toggles  the display of all terminal data (in hexa-
                           decimal format). The initial value for this  toggle
                           is FALSE.



           verbose_encrypt When  the  verbose_encrypt  flag  is  TRUE,  TELNET
                           prints out  a  message  each   time  encryption  is
                           enabled  or  disabled.  The  initial value for this
                           toggle is FALSE.

       environ argument...

           The environ command is used to manipulate  variables  that  may  be
           sent  through  the  TELNET ENVIRON option. The initial set of vari-
           ables is taken from the users environment.  Only  the  DISPLAY  and
           PRINTER  variables are exported by default. Valid arguments for the
           environ command are:

           define variable value   Define variable to have a value  of  value.
                                   Any  variables  defined by this command are
                                   automatically exported. The  value  may  be
                                   enclosed  in  single  or  double quotes, so
                                   that tabs and spaces may be included.




           undefine variable       Remove variable from the list  of  environ-
                                   ment variables.



           export variable         Mark  the  variable  to  be exported to the
                                   remote side.



           unexport variable       Mark  the   variable  to  not  be  exported
                                   unless  explicitly  requested by the remote
                                   side.



           list                    List the current set of  environment  vari-
                                   ables.  Those  marked  with an asterisk (*)
                                   will be sent automatically. Other variables
                                   will be sent only if explicitly requested.



           ?                       Prints out help information for the environ
                                   command.




       logout

           Sends the telnet logout option to the remote side. This command  is
           similar  to  a  close command. However, if the remote side does not
           support the logout option, nothing happens. If, however, the remote
           side  does support the logout option, this command should cause the
           remote side to close the TELNET connection. If the remote side also
           supports the concept of suspending a user's session for later reat-
           tachment, the  logout  argument  indicates  that  the  remote  side
           should terminate the session immediately.

DIAGNOSTICS
       NO LOGINS: System going down in N minutes

           The machine is in the process of being shut down  and  logins  have
           been disabled.



NOTES
       On  some  remote  systems,  echo  has to be turned off manually when in
       "line by line" mode.

       In "old line by line" mode, or LINEMODE, the terminal's  EOF  character
       is only recognized (and sent to the remote system) when it is the first
       character on a line.
