I think Mac OS still ships with a version of NCSA Telnet. Try the find
command to see if it's loaded on your hard drive.
There are lots of Mac shareware sites--do a search for "Info-Mac" or just
look through the mac downloads at www.zdnet.com.
Once youve located/loaded your telnet software, teach your browser to use it
by opening preferences/applications (Netscape--I'm not sure where this
setting lives on the Mac version of Internet Explorer) and associating the
telnet protocol with whatever telnet application you end up finding or

Subject: [WEB4LIB] use of telnet in online searches
I have tried to use telnet to access online databases and have encountered
error messages saying "can't find application to open telnet". I tried to
download telnet software from the Lycos software downloads site but the
only lists software for Windows platforms. Has anyone successfully used
telnet on a Mac OS, or found Mac OS telnet software?
