I'm not: it, and FTP, are horribly insecure.  The corresponding
server-end daemons are (or should be) turned off on most sites in the

$ port search telnet
inetutils @1.9.4_11 (net)
    Inetutils is a collection of common network programs, including ftp, telnet,
    rsh, rlogin, tftp and the corresponding daemons.
