Terminal emulation has long been one of the original "killer apps" of the Internet. Telnet, the terminal emulation protocol of choice of the Internet for over thirty years, has long been one of the most important tools in the network administrator's toolkit as well as a vital enabling technology for network research.

No single document defines telnet, but rather an entire sequence of documents published online as Requests for Comments (RFCs). This book collects and organizes these essential documents in a single printed volume, adding an introduction and extensive index. This means you no longer have to search through various RFCs in hopes of finding the answer to your telnet question - all the current and relevant RFCs are compiled here, with an extensive index that makes it simple to locate precisely the answer you need.

Taken together, these RFCs offer an excellent introduction and overview to the practice and theory of doing interoperable terminal emulation over the Internet or any other TCP/IP network. In addition to documenting the mechanics of telnet and related application protocols, readers will find practical instructions on various related topics, including telnet standards, extending the telnet protocol, security, and telnet interoperability issues.


  • All Internet standards related to telnet
  • All telnet application protocol specifications
  • Telnet authentication and authorization issues
  • Telnet interoperability issues
  • TN3270 and TN5250 specifications
And much more. If you buy only one reference on Internet terminal emulation, this is the one to choose. Written by members of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), this compilation is the most complete and authoritative reference on telnet and terminal emulation available anywhere.
