Hi, I am trying to transfer file from remote machine to a local linux machine using telnet connection.
Is there any way to transfer file using telnet connection?
Thanks

I have never tried to do a file transfer over Telnet and I'm not sure it is possible but since Telnet is insecure I would never even consider using it. In fact I wold never consider using Telnet ever for anything.

If your remote machine is running OpenSSH then you can securely copy files using either 'scp' or 'sftp' .
