Sometimes, telnetd is a necessary evil. Sometimes, the workstation you are
on does not have an SSH client, nor can you install one. For instance,
connecting from Algonquin College can only be done through Telnet.
I admit, if I had my way, the telnetd package would be left in a deep,
dark, dusty hole. Unfortunately, I need it. Instead, I have a second,
permission stripped account.
