Yes!  Exactly the right place for a question about telnetd in a 
Debian system.

This illustrates why I tried to avoid mention of Oberon at the outset.  
It's a distraction, not essential to the question.  The telnet client 
might also be in MS Windows running in QEMU in the debian system or in 
FreeDOS in QEMU in the debian system.  They might provide analogous 
contexts.  But the question was about the telnetd server in debian; 
not about the telnet client.

Please read the message you have replied to again.  Protocols Telnet and SSH are 
available; nothing else you mention.
