Telnet stands for TELecommunication NETwork. It is a network protocol used on the Internet or local area network (LAN) connections. It was developed in 1969. TELNET clients are available for virtually all platforms (win, linux, mac).

Most often, a user will be telnetting to a Unix-like server system or a simple network device such as a router. For example, a user might "telnet in from home to check his mail at school". In doing so, he would be using a telnet client to connect from his computer to one of his servers. Once the connection is established, he would then log in with his account information and execute operating system commands remotely on that computer, (DOS commands, linux Kernel commands).

Things you might need to google - Telnet, tcp/IP.

How to connect to telnet and spoof an e-mail on winXP.

open a command prompt type "telnet" !always with out quotes! press enter

type "open mail.google.com 25"

Syntax = (command) (Address or IP) (port#)

press enter

type "mail from: whateveremail@hear.com" press enter

type "rcpt to: whoever@youwant.com" press enter

type "data" press enter

type "subject: subjecthear" press enter

type " thebodyoftheemailhear " press enter

type "." press enter

type "close"

Congrats you just spoofed an e-mail

You can do allot more with tell net! try connecting to other servers and IPs all you need is the IP and port #. Different port numbers let you transfer different types of files.

			Port #s

25 - E-mail transfer protocal

21 - FTP File Transfer Protocal (mp3, jpg, txt, etc…)

80 - HTTP Hyper Text Transfer Protocal (html)

443 - HTTPS Hyper Text Transfer Protocal Secure (depends on the site)

3306 - MySQL

110 - POP3

143 - Imap

587 - SMTP Secure Mail Transfer Protocal (ALT Mail)

!Another Example!

Sorry but poor… Why ? Well to begin with, anything "for noobs" means that the content of the article will be in fact covering just the very basics of the subject, without even considering more technical aspects etc. And I don't think that this type of article belongs to this site, I mean just google telnet tutorial or something similiar, and you will be given literally thousands of exactly same articles. As said above, you've covered not in-depth and also pretty random information ( even tho I liked the email spoofing ), which is not usable even as good introduction to this subject, therefor doesn't enrich this community in any way.

Wow what the fuck. Seriously admin's how could you let this be excepted. Poor. Very poor.

Okay, okay… obviously, whoever approved this piece of crap either had a sense of humor or didn't bother reading it at all. The history of Telnet was nice… until I realized that it was blatant theft from this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telnet Go ahead… find all of the sentences almost word for word. As soon as I saw you start going into how to spoof an email with Telnet, vomit from the last 57 times someone found that interesting started to come back up. Oh… and you fucked it up; you forgot your "HELO" or "EHLO" after you get the 220 back from the mail server. Port 25 is SMTP, not "Email transfer protocol". SMTP doesn't stand for "Secure Mail Transfer Protocol"… it's "Simple", not "Secure". If it was secure, we wouldn't need PGP or S/MIME. Hell, for that matter, you could've done an article about SSH (more secure than Telnet, similar purposes), really put some effort into it… and probably gotten at least a Good rating. And what the hell was that crap at the end? We don't want jokes… we want some fucking content. Some GOOD content.

Thank you Zephyr_Pure for that well thought out comment I was too angry when I read that. Also you are right it's almost word for word from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telnet and like Zephyr said also we are not here for jokes or laughter we are here to learn and spread knowledge. I still can't believe this got approved though I mean seriously…

Why, you ask? Because this was the most useless, poorly written excuse for an article in quite a long time. If you want details, please refer to Zephyr's post above. He seems to have nailed it perfectly. Like usual.

(Note: I did not accept this article. Still don't have the privs)

WOW, I agree with Zephyr, Really outdated, Misinformed and mostly bullshit. Admins need to delete this before too many people see it. Shit… there is no garbage rating. -30/10

My guess is the guy that's checking out your console… he said something about connecting straight through and tampering with your dangler.

type "subject: subjecthear"

type " thebodyoftheemailhear "

It's "here", not "hear". And also, I think it's quite obvious who rated this article Awesome :D (rated "Poor" btw)

Well, the one that rated Awesome… is either an unfamiliar idiot or pendragon under another alias. The Good… well, we already covered that. No big surprise on the delusional vote there.
