Question What telnet client?

I'm looking for a telnet client with a translucent background that will run in windows. I've got my RH9 box at home and I'd like to telnet to it from my work PC. There are many for Linux but are there any for windows?

Don't know of any but you really shouldn't be using telnet, its utterly insecure and crap. Might want to look into using ssh instead.

Putty is a Telnet/SSH client for windows. But as trickykid said before u really should use ssh and not telnet.
