Telnet Client / CentOS


I'm not sure exactly what support I need from a telnet client, but I need a new client beyond the support BASH provides (perferably something that can run from the command line though).

That is to say, I am accessing a telnet server which does not work under WindowsXP Telnet (CMD->telnet) and it does not work under BASH, but it works under HyperTerminal and Tere Term, so I need some Linux equivalent to them.

Actually, I am using CentOS4 (RHEL4 Clone), is there some graphical front end to yum on CentOS i can use to browse the repository? It would be nice to use such a feature to figure out if any other telnet client are in there.

(oh it works under putty in telnet mode as well)

It is adviseable to use ssh instead..........

SSH for Windows can be found here; http://beatys1.mscd.edu/~csi/MSSH/index.html

Please get the "For users of Cygwin OpenSSH" version along with the latest version of Cygwin from following the link.

Graphical frontends to yum include gnome-yum, yumi, yumex and kyum (my perfered choice).

kyum source; http://sourceforge.net/projects/kyum

As root try building typing something like;

rpmbuild --rebuild --recompile kyum-0.7.5-0.src.rpm

I agree, but the server I am logging into ONLY supports telnet. But imma make an ssh tunnel to wrap it up in.

Thnx I'll try kyum!
