Oops, I was actually going to respond to this ...
I've never used it, but this is basically what I tried for the fun of it :
* Compiled my JNOS with MD5AUTHENTICATION support, figure out how this
works, okay I see, it's plain TELNET but with MD5 encryption on the
payload, easy enough to use, no special service to run, from my own
command line :
jnos> etelnet 127.0.0.1 ve4klm <password>
That's about all there was to it, documented in the original JNOS :
but that was there before JNOS 2.0 was even an idea ...
