I finally figured out how to telnet properly. Forget about Start > Run. Instead, pull up a full-screen DOS Prompt (I made a shortcut to it on my Start menu), and enter this: telnet -l username host, where username is your own username, and host is the host to which you want to telnet. If you’ve got it set up properly, you should have an eighty character wide, 24-row black and white screen, running whatever “shell” is on the host.
