Sites whose links are prefixed by this image require a special add on
software. The link to telnet goes to NCSA's ftp site storing Macintosh and DOS/Windows3.1 versions of telnet. For the Macintosh, use a binhex 4.0 compatible package to extract
the archive. For the PC, use a Zip compatible package. Version 2.6 of NCSA Telnet is the most stable for Mac users using Netscape. Internet Explorer users should download
for their telnet helper. On Windows 95, 98, and NT there is a Telnet.exe program in the C:\Windows directory that can be used as a helper application with Netscape or Internet Explorer. Some versions require you to copy the link location into the clipboard using the right mouse button on the link, and then opening up the site without the telnet:// portion in the Telnet application.
If you don't have a telnet helper setup with your browser, you can remove all the text to telnet:// and copy
into the open connection with your telnet application.
Here is the one currently active telnet link that used to be in the main links part of Macmaps.com pages:
