Telnet is a  terminal emulation program for TCP/IP networks such as the
Internet. The Telnet program runs on your computer and connects your PC to a
server on the network. You can then enter command through the Telnet program
and they will be executed as if you were entering them directly on the
server console.html. This enables you to control the server and communicate
with other servers on the network. To start a Telnet session, you must log
in to a server by entering a valid username and password. Telnet is a common
way to remotely control Web servers. 
I practiced telnet at telnet://

I connected to the Library of Congress site and followed the instructions at
the site to view different information.  Telnet is not as user friendly as a
web site and it seems to have limited capabilities.
