About Unix Telnet
Telnet is a program that lets you login to another computing system as 
though you were sitting at that other computer: you login and use the 
remote system as you normally would; when you logout of that system you 
are returned to your local computer. Here is a sample telnet session to 
VAX computer:
	$ telnet
	 VAX  7
	Username: auser
	Password: [your-password-here]
	[ System messages appear here ... ]
	$				($ is the VAX VMS prompt)
Help facilities
Help for telnet is available by typing "man telnet". This displays the 
syntax and basic usage of telnet. At the -More- prompt, press the Space 
bar to advance to the next screen, press Enter to advance one line, or 
press "q" to end the manual page display.
Online tutorials
Online tutorials may exist on your Unix system; Sun workstations offer 
info pages. See your local system administrator or local documentation 
for further information.
To exit telnet, type the command is to end your remote login session 
(this is usually "logout" or "exit"). Telnet ends and returns you to your 
local computer.
