Copying remote files via telnet?

I know I can use scp/rcp to copy a file from a remote host via a ssh session... But I'm wondering if it can be done using telnet?  If so, how?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I think you can do it with zmodem/xmodem/ymodem.  Try sz and rz.  Although, I'm not sure why you'd want to. ;D

I saw this question earlier, but did not think it was worth posting a suggestion as jimbb's speedy response was fine, even though the question is slightly unclear.
