Telnet gone from High Sierra

Having just (unfortunately) updated to High Sierra on my 2017 MacBook I've just found out that the dumbing down of our computers continues and Apple have removed telnet. Unfortunately I was trying to resolve a connection problem for a client and had to grab an old machine to test port 5300.


I've quickly Googled and see Homebrew as an option and restoring from old Time Machine backups.


Has anyone got further recommendations or experiences good or bad with replacements within High Sierra?


Many thanks
