Any way to get Telnet on pfSense?
I'm not looking for the Telnet daemon but I would like to be able to use telnet to connect to other devices on my network (specifically Mikrotik router boards). I know I could turn on SSH on the mikrotik but I've had other instances where I wish I could use telnet.
Is there something I can pkg_add to get the functionality?

I've done this a few time to connect to switches, waps, etc behind the box.
I copied the following files off of a stock FreeBSD box to pfSense:
Would you be able to provide me with a rapidshare link with a .tgz of those files? We don't have any FreeBSD boxes floating around here :-[
Do this from a shell
fetch -o /usr/bin/telnet http://www.pfsense.com/~sullrich/extra/telnet
chmod a+rx /usr/bin/telnet
