TELNET Protocol

Key Words:

  • Port

  • Host

  • Control stream

  • Proxy

  • SSL- secure sockets layer

  • Client

  • Server

What is protocol?

Is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection , communication and data transfer between two computing endpoints.

Internet Protocols Suite

The set of communication protocols used for Internet and other similar networks.

  • Internet Protocol

  • IP

  • Transmission Control Protocol TCP

OSI Model


  • The Open Systems Interconnection Reference Model

  • OSI Reference Model

  • OSI Model

  • OSI seven layer model

TCP/IP Model – OSI Model

Client Server Model

Software architecture model distinguishes Client system from Server system, which communicate over a computer network.

The qualities characteristic for:


  • Passive

  • It waits for the requests from the client

  • When the request is received – server process it and send an answer to the client


  • Active

  • It sends the request to server

  • It is waiting for the answers from the server

File Transfer Protocol

Is a network protocol used for transfer data from one computer to another through a network such as Internet.

Advantages of FTP

  • FTP operates on two ports: 21, 20

  • Provides two different transfer mode:

    Active client mode

    Passive server mode

  • Servers can have „anonymous FTP” access

  • Two formats on which data can be send:

    ASCII mode-American Standard Code for Information


    BINARY mode

ASCII mode


Disadvantage of FTP

  • FTP is a high latency protocol for e.g to begin a transfer of data it has to be used many comands.

  • Passwords and file contents are sent in clear text, allowing unwanted eavesdropping.

  • It is possible to tell a server to send data to an arbitrary port of a third computer.

The objectives of FTP:

  • To promote sharing of files (computer programs and/or data).

  • To encourage indirect or implicit use of remote computers.

  • To shield a user from variations in file storage systems among different hosts.

  • To transfer data reliably, and efficiently.

HyperText Transfer Protocol

Is a communication protocol for the transfer of information on the Internet.

HTTP request method

  • HEAD-Asks for the response identical to the one that would correspond to a GET request, but without response body.

  • GET-Requests a representation of the specified resource.

  • POST-Submitt data to be processed (e.g. from a HTML form) to the identified resource.

  • PUT-Uploads a representation of the specified resource.

  • DELETE-Deletes the specified resource.

  • TRACE-Echoes back the received request, so that a client can see what intermediate servers are adding or changing in the request.

  • OPTIONS-Returns the HTTP methods that the server supports.

  • CONNECT-For use with a proxy that can change to being an SSL tunnel.

HTTP Versions

  • HTTP/0.9

    Support only one command GET and omits the header.

  • HTTP/1.0

    This is the first protocol revision to specify its version in communications.

  • HTTP/1.1

    Current version with persistent connection.

    Allows pipelining and multiple request at the same time.

    Works well with proxies

  • HTTP/1.2

    Version from the 1995, later subsumed by the experimental HTTP Extension Framework

Telecommunication Network Protocol

Is a network protocol used on the Internet or local area network (LAN) connections.

TELNET security

Three main reasons why ..........?

  • Does not encrypt any data sent over the connection (including passwords).

  • Does not ensure that communication is carried out between the two desired hosts, and not intercepted in the middle.

The packets allow easily obtain login and password information.

Current Status

  • TELNET was replaced by SSH (Secure shell protocol with high level of encryption).

  • Popular in enterprise networks to access host applications.

  • Is also heavily used for games played over the Internet, as well as talkers.

  • Cannot be used as a tunneling protocol.

  • Should not be used on networks with Internet connection.


  • PROTOCOLS are very important in successful communication.

  • INTERNET PROTOCOL SUITE consist of two protocols IP and TCP. They are responsible for transmission data.

  • OSI MODEL is an abstract description for layered communication and computer’s network protocol design. Consist of 7 seven layers.

  • CLIENT SERVER MODEL is responsible for exchanging information between client and server .


  • There are two computers involved in an FTP transfer: a server and a client.

  • Any software company or individual programmer is able to create FTP server or client software because the protocol is an open standard.

  • There are many existing FTP client and server programs, and many of these are free.


  • Its original purpose was to provide a way to publish and retrieve HTML pages.

  • Development of HTTP was coordinated by the World Wide Web Consortium and the Internet Engineering Task Force.

  • HTTP is a request/response protocol between clients and servers.

  • HTTP defines eight methods.

  • HTTP versions: 0.9, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2


  • Name is derived from the words telecommunication network.

  • It was developed in 1969.

  • Provides general, bi-directional, 8-bit communication.

  • Client-server protocol with port 23.

  • TELNET is not recommended for modern systems from the point of view of computer security.
