"Apple in all their "infinite" wisdom has decided to remove Telnet and FTP from their command line tools. Now this is so brain dead, I can't believe it! I read a few forums where people were like, "Well use SSH and SFTP instead. Telnet is not secure." Who the F**K are you to tell me what tool to use? I work with devices every day that have nothing but telnet and don't have SSH on them! Apple has basically decided to screw developers and cripple their Unix."
Well it's not the end of the world you know, their are other solutions to bring these basic tools back to your Mac. One of the easiest and simplest solutions is to spend $19.95 and purchase a PuTTY for Mac license. PuTTY has support for SSH, FTP, SFTP, Telnet, rlogin and more.
