How to install telnet on MacOS

If you don’t have Homebrew then go ahead and install it:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Then install telnet:

brew install telnet

Example of usage:

telnet google.com 80

Output:

Trying 142.250.180.238…
Connected to google.com.
Escape character is ‘^]’.

Instead of telnet you can use nc (netcat)command

Example:

nc -v google.com 80

Output:

Ncat: Version 7.50 ( https://nmap.org/ncat )
Ncat: Connected to 142.250.191.110:80.
