If you want to use telnet for video conferencing you will probably have to install aalib-1.2.

You can use it in Windows too. There are 2 ways that I know of:

START>RUN type CMD

When your DOS command prompt shows up type:

telnet <ip or server name here>

You can also go to START>PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>TELNET

This will get you a white window. Click on CONNECT at the top right, then REMOTE SYSTEM. Here you'll have to specify an IP or DNS.

I have no idea about the video conferencing. Check out mcleodnine's post as I'm not much help here.

Don't use telnet. Use ssh.

Next time you telnet somewhere do a tcpdump after sitting on port 23 and you'll see your username and pasword in plain text. Telnet is not safe.

SSH = Secure SHell

The ssh daemon is included with most distros. if you don't have it take a look at:
http://www.openssh.org

To access an ssh server from windoze you will need a client like putty:
