Telnet is no longer included with macOS starting in High Sierra. Telnet is still a widely used technology in the AV industry and is helpful for troubleshooting Atlona products.
There are a few ways to get telnet on macOS:
1.) You can run Windows in a VM like VMWare Fusion or Parallels. This would allow you to use the wide variety of terminal emulators like Putty, Hercules, or TeraTerm.
2.) Re-install telnet using Homebrew:
- Install Homebrew on macOS using terminal:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
- Use Homebrew to install telnet:
brew install telnet
- Run telnet:
3.) Use a stand-alone terminal emulator such as ZOC: https://www.emtec.com/download.html
- Note: ZOC comes with a 30-day free trial and then it must be purchased.
