We can implement many network applications for Cisco exams on Cisco Packet Tracer. Using the Cisco Packet Tracer program, we can perform telnet connections on the Cisco router with a few commands. Therefore, any client on the local network can telnet to the Cisco router and provide remote management.

The biggest benefit of enabling telnet on the Cisco router is that the Cisco Router does not need to have a permanent console connection. This way, you can easily make a telnet connection to the Cisco router over the local network.

In our previous tutorials, we introduced how to create a network in Cisco Packet Tracer and how to configure DHCP in Cisco Packet Tracer. If you have just started using this program, you can read called how to use Cisco Packet Tracer step by step.
