Maybe I am not clear about your question, but a ServerSocket just sets up a Socket as an end-to-end connection with another host's socket, by implementing its .accept() method.

why we need sockets and end to end connection

Programming Java is at the application level. The API (via sockets) will handle the low-level TCP stuff once you have established the connection in order to allow you the end-to-end communication channel with another host - computer.

Telnet is a protocol carried also over TCP. To leverage it, you have a handful of predefined keyword commands you can issue to convey to the other party (server or peer) what it is you want to 'say'. Not sure what further connection you have in mind between Telnet and Java. Here is part of the Telnet command set :

Commands may be abbreviated. Supported commands are:

c    - close                    close current connection
d    - display                  display operating parameters
o    - open hostname [port]     connect to hostname (default port 23).
q    - quit                     exit telnet
set  - set                      set options (type 'set ?' for a list)
sen  - send                     send strings to server
st   - status                   print status information
u    - unset                    unset options (type 'unset ?' for a list)
?/h  - help                     print help information

Is nothing to do with Java or your server socket program at all. That is an error message from your Operating System saying that you don't have the telnet program installed. I am guessing that you are on a newer version of Windows where telnet doesn't get installed by default. As for getting it installed, since I don't know exactly what operating system you are using, refer to this link... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771275(v=ws.10).aspx for further instructions.

There is a chance, also, that it is not that, but that you have a messed up reference to telnet in your environment variables, and so the OS can't find it. You might want to check that.

It would be pretty unusual that your OS hadn't bundled telnet.

(If you run Windows, you can search your hard disk like this :) dir C:\telnet.* /s

Yes, but did you run that little command I posted above, to see if telnet is resident?

@krakatoa,
It would be pretty unusual that your OS hadn't bundled telnet.
If you have a look at the link that I posted above, the very first (informative) line on the page states:
Telnet Client is not installed by default on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008.
And note that I didn't say that it ISN'T included (bundled) with Windows, it's just that it isn't installed by default.

@gudii9,

Did you attempt to install Telnet using the instructions provided in the link above?

I don't always have time to read links.

I'll remember not to "overinform" people next time.

OK, so when it finishes the search, if it says :

"File not Found"

then you do not have telnet installed.

The server asks us our name, so I typed 'Bob'. It says 'Hello, Bob' and then closes the connection.
