Telnet (Telecommunication Network) refers to a TCP/IP-based protocol used in computer networks that allows the user to connect to a remote computer using a Telnet application (console).
Telnet is on top of a direct TCP/IP connection

Telnet is the successor of terminals that were used to connect to a remote computer over a serial line. Telnet typically uses port 23. The main disadvantage of telnet is the lack of encryption; therefore, SSH protocol is nowadays used instead.
