Package: telnet
Architecture: any
Depends: netbase, ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}
Replaces: netstd
Provides: telnet-client
Description: basic telnet client
 The telnet command is used for interactive communication with another host
 using the TELNET protocol.
 .
 For the purpose of remote login, the present client executable should be
 depreciated in favour of an ssh-client, or in some cases with variants like
 telnet-ssl or Kerberized TELNET clients.  The most important reason is that
 this implementation exchanges user name and password in clear text.
 .
 On the other hand, the present program does satisfy common use cases of
 network diagnostics, like protocol testing of SMTP services, so it can
 become handy enough.

Package: telnetd
Architecture: any
Priority: optional
Depends: adduser, openbsd-inetd | inet-superserver, passwd, ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}
Replaces: netstd
Provides: telnet-server
Description: basic telnet server
 The in.telnetd program is a server which supports the DARPA telnet interactive
 communication protocol.
 .
 This legacy server should in general be abandoned in favour of a contemporary
 ssh-server, as this implementation only is able to process password and user
 name in clear text.  Other variants, like telnetd-ssl and a selection of
 Kerberized TELNET servers, are able to improve on this by providing secure
 forms of authentication and encryption.
