The school I study in has dissabled telnet. We log on to our servers through SSH client for security(????). However what can a aspiring hacker like me can do now. I am unable to connect to the outer world, participate in IRCs, download cool staffs etc. Is there a way still to connect to servers outside, please help me.

At HostNuke they disable Telnet on all servers by default as in the past it is the most widely exploited linux service; plus SSH uses encryption to connect to the server so data can't be "sniffed".

Spanky, can you please give me some more information about tunneling. For example how do I connect to cyberspace.org(grex).
In SSH, data can't be sniffed, but one can easily launch man in the middle attack. So what's the point of disabiling telnet.

The point of disabling telnet can be found via Google; try searching for "Telnet Exploit" (including the ""); you will see 954 results of differant ways of exploiting the service. Additionally you can just search telnet exploit for more results.

champatram,

What ever you are using telnet for you can use ssh. It is just more secure. As Silent Rage allways said, telnet is not a protocol, it is a service. ssh is the same thing, same as rlogin

You all are not getting my point. I am not able to connect to any servers outside my school. They only allow Telnet connections. How do I go about it. I am not even able to participate in IRCs, which is very frustrating.

Which is it?

Also if you really need to connect to an IRC server, try using a SOCKS proxy, or connecting on a non-standard port. Most have 6660-6669 open, but most schools only block port 6667.
