Practically all terminal servers support this capability. It underlies
Some terminal server vendors supply an actual "rtelnet" program to do this.
Otherwise, you can use the regular telnet syntax with special port numbers.
For example "telnet ts 5001" would connect to the terminal server "ts", port
While I don't think that this "50xx" convention is really a "well-known
port" in the sense of an actual RFC, it seems commonplace.
If no port is specified, telnet defaults to port 23, as defined in
/etc/services. This *is* a "well-known" or "reserved" port.
A socket program can fill out the socket data structures with the IP address
and port number to do the same thing.
