will be send in the encrypted form, where the hacker cannot
encode or decode it. While you telnet,the data send between
the system is alphabetical format(ASCII), where every one
can understand. More over as per network security, telnet
and ftp are prohibited. Always, trust SSL based data transfer.

Telnet and FTP both we use to access the Server or
Transferred the between Server to Server and Client to
Server. But Telnet is not secure because at Time Data
Transferred, The data Transferred in ASCII form, any Hacker

SSH:- As per Name SSH is Secure Shell. SSH works on port
22. SSH is the new resarch on FTP and Telnet. Purpose of
SSH is same as TELNET & FTP. But in SSH data transferred in
Encrypted mode. Encrypted means no body can ENCODE &
DECODE. If any Hacker try to hack the Data at time data
