A quick word about Telnet. Telnet allows you to access other systems with a text based interface – similar to calling a BBS with a modem. The success and/or enjoyment of the connection experience is controlled primarily by the quality of the Telnet pro gram you are using. Do yourself a favor – use a great Telnet program! Do not use the Telnet program that is included with Windows XP – it doesn’t work properly. You can use the program that comes with Windows 7. Simply hit the Start button, then in the text box (Search Programs and Files), type “telnet -t vt100 mercury2.qmsdc.com”
If you would prefer another Telnet program or to replace the telnet program which was bundled with the Windows OS, a great Telnet program can be found and downloaded from the sites below.
