    -nbtstat is a Microsoft command that allows you to see NetBios status on connections from your machine to others, what NetBios name your host has on the network, etc.
    -arp is a command that lets you see what layer 3 IP addresses are bound to what layer 2 MAC addresses on your machine, and in your arp cache
    -telenet is actually "telnet", and allows you to remotely connect to a host that accepts connections that way (typically, network devices or Unix workstations etc. that support command-line interfaces)

    If you are running WinXP or 2000, you can search for those commands in Help, and it will give you a more detailed description of what they are on a Microsoft box.
