:: TELNET ::
BCM offers a telnet login via TCP/IP.
You can reach BBS via telnet from command line if route to <boxcall> is set:
$ > telnet <boxcall> 4719
<boxcall> may be also "localhost".
It doesn't make sense to use telnet via air, but if you are using BCM
with wired lan this is the best possiblity to reach BBS.
The portnumber of the telnet server can be set with TELNET_PORT command,
default value is 4719. You can also setup portnumber with command line
parameter "bcm -t [port]".
$ > telnet server 4719
Connected to server.local.net.
Escape character is '^]'.

If you have to use a password is caused by following:
"rhosts.bcm" - all trusted hosts are saved in this file; if there
is a telnet connect from one of these computers, no password is asked.
After login the user has sysop status and can use "connect" command!
All other logins have to use TTY password (see HELP ALTER TTY) set by sysop.
After login the user has no sysop status.
