telnetd - start or stop the Telnet daemon
start telnetd [port]
Command start telnetd starts the NAT32 Telnet daemon. A password file must be available in the current directory. The daemon will listen at the specified TCP port number or at port 23 (the default).

Command stop TELNETD stops the Telnet daemon. Any established connections are unaffected. New connections cannot be established.

The Telnet daemon will respond to TCP connection requests arriving at any NAT32 interface.

To terminate an established Telnet session, use the command:

kill tshell
Because the Telnet daemon does not echo characters (except password characters, which are echoed as \b*), the Telnet client must have local echo turned on.

NAT32 allows a user at the NAT32 Console to chat with the remote user. At the client end, command:

chat 1 [message...]
will display the message on the NAT32 Console. At the NAT32 console, command:
chat device [message...]
will display the message on the client's terminal. The value device is displayed when the client connects.
The NAT32 Telnet daemon gives the logged on user unrestricted access to your machine.

To provide login security, the Telnet daemon uses one-time passwords contained in file password. Specify up to 50 passwords of at least 8 random alphanumeric characters. When all passwords have been used once, the Telnet daemon should be terminated. It should only be restarted after a new password file has been created.

File password has the following format:

Each entry is followed by a new line character.
chat, kill, rlogind
