    Many protocols were designed so they could be exercised with the telnet program.

    @ telnet www.apple.com 80

    Outbound TELNET yes, and it can be a very useful diagnostic tool. You can
    if you want TELNET to port 119 of your news provider and relive that BBS
    style interface for reading and posting news.

    OS X also has inbound TELNET, which is disabled by default. I did enable
    inbound TELNET in the Panther/Tiger era just for the heck of it, but it
    wasn't easy to do so. Someone at Apple sensibly thought it wasn't a good
    idea so put some obstacles in the way.
