    Mac-os high sierra disabled telnet support, you can use the command, "nc towel.blinkenlights.nl" without quotes and it should work

    My mac says" Trying 94.142.241.111..." Is that normal?

    "Connection closed by foreign host" is all my mac says when I type in this command. Anyone here who could help me?

    Works in Ubuntu linux as well because MAC is just a glorified version of Linux

    Actually, Mac uses the Darwin kernel, base on BSD

    This is cool!

    Any way to kill it other than shutting down the Terminal?

    You can do it on Windows too, the process is quite similar, just open cmd and type pkgmgr /iu"TelnetClient" (hit enter) and then restart cmd. Next type Telnet (hit enter) O (hit enter) and finally type towel.blinkenlights.nl and press enter, and you're done!

    Cool

    ya thats great but you don't have the classic matrix green font

    True true.
    Ah, those days of green screens, saving to audio cassettes and loading times measured in hours!

    I think It's funny to see star wars on a mac : )

    what's so funny?
