For accessing MS-DOS over telnet- the answer is "yes", sort of.    Not by itself, but when you include a remote-access-for-PC's application like PC-ANYWHERE, it will work.

Here's the problem however-  The current PC-ANYWHERE applications are designed for current operating systems - Windows 2000, XP, and so on.    They *DID* make a DOS version (when DOS was "it")....    but I am not certain you can find it any more.

===================

If you are instead asking "can I get to the command prompt" via telnet on a CURRENT box (XP, 2K, etc)....     then the answer there too is YES.... but you need a TELNET SERVER appliation.    There are a few to choose from, but I understand this product is good:

Telnet servers for windows are not free.   At least, I couldn't find one.....

Yes, even when the cmd.exe has been disabled command.com still works.

Just type c:\windows\system32\command.com in any run dialog/address bar and a command prompt should open for you :)

My bad, that was the windows xp command line, for win2k change c:\windows\system32\command.com to c:\winnt\system32\command.com
