How about telnet?

You might want to see if you can get access through ssh. It's a tad more secure.

Not familiar with Tiny Term, but this should work...

Type: telnet in a shell (kind of like command prompt in windows)

telnet isn't secure, though. ssh is a better option.

Edit: wow, posted nearly at the same time... sorry for the duplicate info.

It happens. Plus it reinforces the info for the OP -- use ssh not telnet if he can.
