Telnet Client with Java

This example implements Telnet with help of Telnet server. The code connects to the Telnet server and receives data whenever command "1" is entered


class TelnetClient


    public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception


        //Create object of Socket

        Socket soc=new Socket("localhost",8088);

        String Command;

        //Create object of Input Stream to read from socket

        DataInputStream din=new DataInputStream(soc.getInputStream());    

        //Create object of Output Stream   to write on socket 

        DataOutputStream dout=new DataOutputStream(soc.getOutputStream());

        // Object of Buffered Reader to read command from terminal

        BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;

        System.out.println("Welcome to Telnet Client");

        System.out.println("< Telnet Prompt >");

        Command=br.readLine();//reads the command 

        dout.writeUTF(Command);//sends command to server

        System.out.println(din.readLine()); //gets the response of server        

        soc.close();  //close port  

        din.close();  //close input stream     

        dout.close();  //close output stream      

        br.close();   //close buffered Reader
