  • Install Homebrew on Mac OS if you haven’t done so already – if you already have Homebrew skip this step

  • Use Homebrew to install telnet with the following command:
    brew install telnet
  • Hit Return and let Homebrew download and install Telnet to the Mac
  • When installation has complete, you can run Telnet as usual:
    telnet server-or-ip-address
